Athlete of the Week Akili Roberts
Coach Thompson had this to say with his nomination of Akili for this award:
Akili carried the ball 7 times for 114 yards and 2 TDs in our win in the first round of the sectional against Anderson Prep. He had 6 tackles and 1 INT returned for 31 yards on defense in the first playoff win for Union City in a long time. Akili has matured in to an excellent leader for us this season and will lead us in to the second round of the playoffs.
