The Southside Southerners Athletes of the week, sponsored by Vicki Stephenson/Shelter Insurance and Triangle Cafe, are Blayne Warden (football) and Lexie Dale (volleyball).
Warden average 38 yards per punt Friday night against the Stuttgart Ricebirds in his first start at the position.
Coach Brian Reardon had this to say when asked about Warden: “He has stepped in at several positions for us as a sophomore. He took over punting duties and did a great job, he will also be starting at wide receiver Friday, and can even play linebacker. He has a bright future ahead of him.”
“Lexie Dale is one of those players that is consistently good every game. She is going to give her maximum effort and bring a high level of skill to the court. She attends many early 6 a.m. weight lifting sessions and puts extra time in watching film,” said Coach Suzanne Fincham Rains when told Dale had won the award.
The winners receive a free medal from Vicki Stephenson and a free meal at the Triangle cafe.
