This week’s Rhea County High School Player of the Week versus Bradley Central is Golden Eagle Senior Running Back AJ Velasco. AJ scored the Eagles’ sole touchdown in the 21-7 loss against the 6A powerhouse Bears.
The Week 6 contest marked the first return of Velasco since an injury in Week 1 versus Cleveland.
Velasco and the Eagles, now 3-3, return to district play this Thursday for the most consequential game of the regular season at Knoxville Catholic.
The Player of the Week Award is presented by SouthEast Bank & Trust.
