In a back-and-forth affair, Sharpsburg (Ga.) East Coweta dropped its region opener, 37-34, to Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake on Friday night. North Carolina pledge Jeremiah Gemmel did his part by tallying 13 tackles.
Gemmel, a 6-foot-2, 205-pounder, lined up at both inside and outside linebacker for East Coweta. Although he made his greatest impact against the run, between the tackles, three of his stops were in coverage.
Perhaps more impressive: of Gemmel's 13 stops, nine were solo.
