ScoutSouth.com Player of the week: Jeremy Yates
Senior Jeremy Yates
completed 28-of-41 passing attempts for 340 yards and three touchdowns. Yates found his undefeated squad behind in the fourth quarter and rallied his team to force overtime. Colbert Heights defeated Elkmont 27-24.
Senior Colton Madison
did a little of everything Friday night against St. Bernard. It was not the shear numbers he put up as much as it was the versatility. Madison recorded 354 all-purpose yards including seven touchdowns. He went 10-of-14 in passing for 191 yards with four of those touchdowns. He rushed for 49 yards on nine carries for another three touchdowns. Madison also returned three kicks for 114 yards. The offensive specialist put on his special teams hat and converted two point after attempts and two two-point conversions.
Wide Receiver/Running Back/Defensive Back

scored on touchdowns of 7, 44, 50 and 56 yards. He also recorded 129 yards in kick returns.
Senior Morgan Ogilvie
