UnioNCounty Football has named Marvin Ridge quarterback, Sully McDermott, the offensive player of the week and Forest Hill's defensive lineman/linebacker, Romel Wright, the defensive player of the week.
McDermott, the junior QB from Marvin Ridge led his Mavericks to a 56-0 season-opening win over Jay M. Robinson. When a quarterback throws for over 250 yards, four touchdowns, completes 81% of passes and records a 161.2 QB rating you take notice. Congratulations to Sully on being selected as the Offensive Player of the Week for the second week of football action.
Wright recorded 19 total tackles (two- tackles for a loss), one sack and one punt block on special teams. After losing their home opener 34-0 the previous week, the Jackets rebounded with a clutch road win vs Red Springs, 37-34 and Wright's defensive contributions played a big part in that victory. Congratulations to Romel on your selection as this week's UnioNCounty Football's Defensive Player of the Week.
