Brown, Perrin named Players of the Week


Sumiton Christian entered Friday night looking for its first win of the season.

Thanks to senior receiver Jeremy Brown the Eagles got it, beating Meek 28-6 at Campbell Field.

Against the Tigers, Brown’s specialty was the big play. He had just four catches on the night, but still managed to pile up 179 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the game.

Brown is the Daily Mountain Eagle’s PrepZone Offensive Player of the Week.

His touchdowns went for 83 and 49 yards as Sumiton Christian snapped a 10-game losing streak. The Eagles last win had come on Sept. 21 of last year against Southeastern.

Friday’s game also marked the first win for first-year Sumiton Christian head coach David Powell.


Defensive Player

of the Week

Cordova’s Jordan Perrin

Like Sumiton Christian, Cordova entered Friday night looking for its win.

Behind a stellar game on both sides of the ball, the Blue Devils earned a 21-14 victory, giving first-year Cordova coach Justin Jones his first win with the Blue Devils.

Jordan Perrin was the defensive leader for the Blue Devils. Perrin scored what turned out to be the game-deciding touchdown with a 54-yard fumble return for a score late in the third quarter.

Perrin also had 11 total tackles, four tackles for loss and three quarterback hurries.

Perrin is the Daily Mountain Eagle’s PrepZone Defensive Player of the Week.

Cordova now heads into the second half of the season with a chance at earning a playoff spot. Following an off week, the Blue Devils return to region play with a game at Curry on Oct. 11.
