A handful of big plays on both sides of the football propelled Zack Evans to the latest Vicksburg Post Athlete of the Week award.
Evans, a senior wide receiver and defensive back for Warren Central, received 303 of 684 votes cast in an online poll by The Post’s readers to become the latest winner of the weekly award.
Vicksburg High wide receiver Tyler Henderson finished second, with 152 votes. St. Aloysius cross country runner Hendrix Eldridge was third with 135 votes, and Tallulah Academy quarterback Dee Morgan was fourth with 94.
Evans contributed on both offense and defense in Warren Central’s 38-21 win over Pearl on Oct. 14.
While playing wide receiver, Evans caught two passes for 63 yards. One was a 40-yard reception that set up a touchdown as the Vikings scored 18 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to rally for the win.
At defensive back, he had two interceptions and assisted on three tackles.
Congratulations to Zack and the other nominees, and thank you to our readers for voting.
