The Deerfield-Windsor defense looked very sharp in their season opening win at Southwest Georgia Academy.
Knights sophomore Matthew Fox earned our first WALB Albany Area Player of the Week award for his play.
Dr.James Mason made the presentation Thursday morning at the Orthopaedic Associates Clinic.
Fox had two quarterback sacks, recovered a fumble and was credited for nine tackles.
Matthew says the Knights defense wanting to show their talents early in the season.
Matthew Fox said. "I thought it was important to make a statement for our team and our starting defense. We really didn't give up any yards or first downs for that matter. We just wanted to make a statement for the year."
