Top Performers Week Seven: Names to Know Going Into Week Eight

Week seven was a rough week for most Cherokee County football fans, as our teams went 0-3 in non-county matchups. Despite the results, there were still some big plays from key players on a rainy night in Georgia. Lets take a look back at our top performances of week seven.


The Warriors weren't able to overcome an early deficit against Wheeler to open up region play. Despite this, Cherokee was able to rely on Tanner Savasir connecting with Wyatt Tash in the passing game to keep the Warriors in it. Tash had 8 receptions for over 120 yards. Christian Irwin was also able to find success to keep the Warriors balanced. The Warriors offensive line continues to be one of the more reliable groups in Cherokee County. The combined efforts of Spencer Radnoti, Javon Hobson, Chase Montgomery, and Andy Debaker were able to slow the Wheeler run game at times, which is more than anyone who played Wheeler to this point can say. The Warriors will have to rebound against undefeated Osborne to keep their heads above water in region 5-7A.


The Grizzlies showed their ability to score at will on Friday, defeating River Ridge 48-34. The Grizzlies offense is driven by an impressive offensive line core of Pierson Sears, Fernando Zurita, Brayden Grantham, Beckett Singleton, Cam Mears, and of course, Andrew Rosinski. With that impressive front, Creekview is able to run the ball with a cast of backs, including Mason Munn, who had two touchdown runs, Grayson Davis, and Nigel Agyemang, who also had a touchdown rush. The biggest story of the game was Austin Guest and Michael Roach in the passing game, who connected for over 100 yards and a touchdown. The Grizzlies defense continues to impress, particularly Andrew Adams in the secondary, who was tested throughout the night and held his own against larger receivers. Not to be outdone, the combined efforts of Trey Thomas, Griffin Jane, and Kevin Meade forced River Ridge to pass more than they would like. The Grizzlies will prepare to host Sequoyah for the Battle of Hickory Flat.

The Knights had a tough matchup against Creekview, but again showed resilience in the face of adversity. Andrew Hand had a kickoff return for a touchdown, adding to his already impressive resume this season. Ethan Spector was dynamic once again this week, racking up over 300 passing yards and three touchdowns. Camden Cox, Thomas Thompsen, and Sam Vincent all caught one touchdown to keep the Knights in it. Jon Faletra was all over the field Friday, playing right tackle, center, and even got some action on the defensive line. Brice Tomlinson had another big game for the Knights, getting double digit tackles for the second time in as many weeks. The Knights get a bye week before taking on Rome.


The Chiefs were able to hold off Rome for a while, but eventually the Wolves were able to best Sequoyah. The Chiefs had early success on offense working sideline to sideline, with Kolby Martin finding multiple targets to establish the short passing game. Jackson Hancock was a big factor in the special teams game, setting Sequoyah up with great field position on their scoring drive. The defensive line did an exceptional job early, as Nathan Boronat, Matthew Matz, and Ean Marria all kept Rome in check between the tackles. Sequoyah will need to rebound quickly, as they will head to Creekview to face the Grizzlies.


The Wolverines went toe to toe with Allatoona, holding a lead for the first half. Woodstock rode the arm of Peyton Lynch who completed over 65 percent of his passes and racked up over 200 yards. Chase Colina was his primary target, tallying over 100 yards. The defense was able to hold Allatoona to only 115 rushing yards, a testament to the growth of the Wolverines. Cooper Price came up with an early turnover on a fumble recovery to stop the Bucs on a nice drive. Kaheem Davis had another big game, picking up a forced fumble, TFL, and sack on the night. Woodstock will prepare for the Battle of Towne Lake on Friday.
