Stone Mountain-Redan Patch Football Honor Roll
Player of the Week
The amazing Mike Davis has been putting up big numbers for the undefeated Stephenson Jaguars this season, but he may be the first to tell you that he’s not the only reason the Jaguars are undefeated and ranked in the top 10.
Senior Pernell Whitehead has had an impact, too. Last week, he returned the second-half kickoff for a touchdown to start a Stephenson rally in a 34-14 win over Luella.
The week before, he was named the team’s offensive player of the week, as reported to DeKalb County athletics, after rushing for 116 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
