Trussville Tribune writers Erik Harris, Chris Yow and Kyle Parmley will be awarding Players of the Week in each high school football matchup of the 2015 season. Players or position groups will be awarded based on more than just statistics. The awarded player(s) will also be evaluated based on the timeliness of their performance. Tribune Players of the Week will be announced weekly on Tribune Sports Live.
Clay-Chalkville 56, Center Point 0
Like the other Clay-Chalkville starters, quarterback Ty Pigrome didn’t play beyond the first quarter, but made the most of his short time on the field by scoring three times to help his team capture a 35-0 lead going into the second frame. Pigrome completed all four of his passing attempts for 70 yards and two scores. He churned up 50 additional yards on the ground for another touchdown. Pigrome is awarded by Johnny Sanders.
Hewitt-Trussville 38, Oak Mountain 31
He didn’t start the 2015 season as Hewitt-Trussville’s starting place kicker, but Parker Colburn has certainly accepted the job of replacing T.J. McGettigan who graduated last year and eventually signed with the University of West Alabama. Colburn has taken off right where his predecessor left the Huskies’ kicking unit – as a reliable option. He made his mark last Friday, going three-for-three on field goal attempts in a Class 7A, Region 3 win. Colburn is awarded by Chris Yow.
Pinson Valley 8, Huffman 0
Pinson Valley senior Rhasheed Wilson, a Center Point transfer, led a defensive charge that would result in the Indians’ second shutout of the season. Wilson intercepted two Huffman passes to help keep the Class 6A, Region 6 opponent off the scoreboard. The transfer scored the game’s final points by driving Demetrius Davis through the back of his own end zone for a safety. Wilson is awarded by Kyle Parmley.
