• Who: Peachtree Ridge’s Travis Bowers

• Position: Defensive back

• Class: Junior

• Highlights: Game-winning, 35-yard interception return for a touchdown and two tackles (one for a loss) in a victory over Parkview.

• Coach Mark Fleetwood’s take: “I’m just really proud of him. He made a big play, at that time of the game it was 14-14 and in fourth quarter. I was so excited for him because he needed that confidence-wise. He’s an excellent player. He played a lot last year as a sophomore and had some growing pains along the way. I’m glad he made that play. Confidence-wise that’s what he needed.”
