MOULTRIE – Colquitt County High senior running back Daijun Edwards, coming off a double school-record setting football game against Grayson High, received the Georgia High School Football Daily Player of the Week honor Friday at the start of Colquitt County High's Homecoming pep rally.
Edwards broke the Packer career records for both rushing yards and total touchdowns in last weekend's 31-7 win over the then No. 1 Rams on Tom White Field at Mack Tharpe Stadium.
Presenting the award was Ted Langford, marketing director for GHSF Daily. He said this is a state-wide award that not only takes in the statistics of a game, but a player's character and work in the classroom.
The Player of the Week award is sponsored by SportsTurf Company, Inc. and AstroTurf. They were represented respectively by Scott Powers and Speizio Stowers.
