CES/GAVSV Player of the Week - Defense

<b>Travis Badie</b> of Vidalia is the <a href="http://www.competitiveedgesports.com/index1.html">Competitive Edge Sports</a>/GAVSV.com Defensive Player of the Week.

Vidalia was able to vanquish a rival last weekend 35-0 with the help of a big game from senior linebacker Travis Badie. While the final score indicates a blowout, Toombs County was only a play or two away from making the game much, much closer, and that's where Badie stepped in.

"We were up 21-0 near the end of the second quarter," said Vidalia Head Coach Sid Fritts. "Toombs was driving deep in our territory, and right before the half, Travis was able to make a one handed interception that ended their drive and helped seal the game up for us. He finished the game with seven solo tackles and nine assists, and he also had 75 yards on six carries and two touchdowns at fullback."

For his efforts Travis Badie has been names the Competitive Edge Sports/GAVSV Defensive Player of the Week.

"He's been playing real steady on defense for us all year," said Fritts.

That may be an understatement. Badie is a sideline to sideline middle linebacker at 5-10 and 245 pounds. He is a big reason why Vidalia has only given up six points in its first three games combined. Vidalia has this week off, and they will square off with Claxton next weekend.
