Week 7- Montgomery Advertiser High School Player of the Week: Brandon Baynes, fullback, Tallassee

By

* School: Tallassee

* Position: Fullback

* Statistics: Fullbacks aren’t known for putting up big numbers, but Baynes ran for 214 yards and three touchdowns on just five carries — all in the first half — in the Tigers’ 63-7 victory over Alabama Christian. He had touchdowns runs of 93, 58 and 47 yards, along with an interception on defense.

* Highlight: Baynes had a few plays to choose from, but his 93 yard run was the one that stuck out to him. “It was an inside call to me and it was just wide open,” Baynes said.

* Up Next: Tallassee (6-1, 4-1) hosts St. James (2-5, 2-3) for a Class 4A Region 2 matchup at 7 p.m. on Friday.
