Versatile Clements running back is Player of the Week

— The News Courier Player of the week is …

Demarcus Johnson, Clements: Demarcus Johnson started the season with a four-touchdown effort in a 54-53 four-overtime loss to West Limestone. The junior running back finished with an even more impressive effort guiding his team to its first win of the season.

Johnson had two interceptions for touchdowns, carried the ball 21 times for 111 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 53 yards. On defense, Johnson finished with eight tackles and a fumble recovery to go along with his two defensive scores.

Other notable standouts:

Aaron McWilliams, West Limestone: McWilliams had two receptions for 74 yards and two touchdowns as the Wildcats beat county rival Ardmore 28-13 in their final regular season game.
