Player of the Week

Brandon Addison/Stephenson

Stephenson’s perfect won-lost record may have been saved by the late heroics of defensive lineman Brandon Addison.

In Friday’s 24-17 win over upset-minded East Coweta, Addison turned in the play of the game with just seconds left. On a fourth-down play at the Stephenson 6-yard line, Addison broke through the line, got to the quarterback and forced an errant pass that landed in the end zone.

The play enabled the Jaguars to hang on and improve to 8-0.
