Childs makes the big catch

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Westover High needed someone to make a big play when they were trailing in the second half at Americus Sumter.

That player was receiver Jackie Childs.

Childs receives this week's Albany Area Player of the Week award from Dr. Jason Potocki at the Orthopaedic Associates Clinic on Wednesday.

Childs not only had this incredible one-handed catch for a touchdown.

He also caught the game winning score with seconds to play.

A catch that even stunned Childs.

"I just laid there. Closed my eyes. I was just listening. I heard the crowd. I got up and I was just shocked. I had the ball in my hands", said Jackie Childs.

Westover has another big region game Friday versus Dougherty at Hugh Mills Stadium.
