* School: Tallassee High
* Position: Running back
* Statistics: The Tigers’ star junior had 26 carries for 235 yards and four touchdowns in Tallassee’s 28-7 win over Headland.
* Highlight: With three touchdown carries of 30 yards or more, McKenzie couldn’t select a single highlight play. However, he did credit the defense for coming up with big stops and holding Headland to just one score.
* Up Next: The Tigers (3-1) host Dadeville (4-0) at 7 p.m. Friday. Tallassee is looking to avenge its 42-34 loss to Dadeville last year. “I’m looking forward to playing in the Dadeville game,” McKenzie said. “I’m looking forward to overcoming and beating them this Friday.”
