This week the Fannin County Rebels hosted AAA-Region 7 frontrunner Greater Atlanta Christian High School (Gwinnett), a contest that revealed the true character of the home team as Fannin found themselves down-and-out prior to the second half of play. Under the direction of the Fannin County’s coaches, the team pulled together and showed that they refused to give up until the game was officially over. Choosing the Sportswriter Player of the Week is a difficult task when the entire team shows relentless pursuit defensively and an unwavering attitude of persistence on offense. Both on the field and on the sidelines, defensive back Bailey White showed the most guts this week (literally), earning POTW honors for the first time with TeamFYNSports. White played all four quarters of the game without complaint and without hesitation, despite battling flu symptoms. A vital part of the Rebels’ defensive scheme as well as special teams, White recognized that his position was one that could not easily be replaced. He recorded five tackles in the 55-0 loss, and he broke up a pass that would’ve surely resulted in another touchdown for GAC. Congratulations Bailey White and we wish you to get well soon.
