Everyone knew that Sandy Creek had fire power on offense, but it was the defense and special teams that propelled them to a victory over Douglas County last week. Ishmael Gordon blocked and recovered a punt to set up the game winning score and preserved Sandy Creek's perfect record.
For his efforts, Ishmael Gordon has been named the Competitive
Edge Sports/GAVSV Defensive Player of the Week.
Gordon told Jay Stone of the Atlanta Journal Constitution: "[Defensive End] Michael Lockett told me we had to make a big play or we were going to lose," said Gordon who recovered the kick at Douglas County's 26 yard line early in the fourth quarter.
Gordon's big play helped keep Sandy Creek perfect on the season, and the Patriots will host North Clayton tonight.
