Monroe High believes they turned their season around with their road win at Worth County last week.
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Monroe defensive end Vantrel McMillian is this week's WALB Albany Area Player of the Week award winner.
Dr. Jason Potocki presented Vantrel with his player of the week award at the Orthopaedic Associates Physical Therapy Center Thursday morning.
Vantrel led the Mornoe defense with 11 tackles in last week's win.
He also returned a fumble for a touchdown.
Vantrel says it was his first defensive touchdown in football and one he will remember for the rest of his life.
Vantrel McMillian said. "It is very special for me. Especially for the position I was in. When I got home and saw the film, I had to watch it over and over."
Monroe is off this week.
The Tornadoes play at Crisp County next week.
