Each week during the spring sports season, the Citizen will honor a Fans Choice Player of the Week based on fan voting during the week. Voting begins Monday and closes Thursday at RockdaleNewtonCitizen.com. The winner will be honored in the print and web versions of the Citizen.
This week’s candidates are:
School: Rockdale County
Last week: Junior Toree Thomas scored two first-half goals in a 4-2 win against Archer last Tuesday and followed that performance up with two more goals Friday night in a 3-2 win over South Gwinnett.
Thomas' second goal against the Comets came in the final minute.
Last week: Senior Khafri Jamison was the hero in a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over first-place Lakeside last Friday night. Jamison tied the game up in the second half before winning it in overtime.
Last week: Sophomore Aralyn Everett scored twice in a shutout victory over Salem last week before recording a hat trick against Newton on Saturday. Everett continues to lead the Eagles in goals scored this season.
Last week: Senior Griffin Holcombe lowered his ERA to 0.88 last week after a dominant performance against Eastside, pitching six innings of 2-hit, 1-run ball while striking out five. It marked the second win of the season for the senior.
