Tampa, FL– Patrick Brooks, senior running back at Plant High School, is our high school football Player of the Week.
Brooks rushed for 294 yards on 16 carries and scored five touchdowns, leading Plant past Tampa Bay Tech 44-7.
The five touchdowns tied a school record, previously set by James Wilder Jr.
“Just to know James Wilder had that record, and me tying that record and kind of being compared to James Wilder is pretty cool.”
Plant is 4-1, and ranked 2nd in this week’s 10 Sports HSS Poll. The Panthers host the Riverview Sharks this Friday in a district 8A-6 matchup.
