North Augusta, SC--Fox Creek hasn't been a high school for a decade and while they've made the playoffs on the football field, they haven't really had that signature win, that is, until this past Friday when they beat Augusta Christian. A big part of that win, our Acadmey Sports player of the week, Deondre Baskett.
The senior Baskett scored two first half touchdowns including runs of 79 and 53 yards. Here's a youngster who suffered a ACL injury at the start of this past basketball season yet is back leading the Predators. The plays like friday, they are a bye product of perserverence and determination.
"Before the pre play I'll read the defenses and I'll tell the coaches what I see and they'll just go along with it." said Deondre Baskett "Just tell them what I see and just do it"
"He's a quiet leader" said Russ Schneider "He doesn't say much and he just kind of leads by actions. We try to get our kids to believe you can lead by not talking and he goes out there and does it and I think that's what they follow"
At the end of the night, Baskett scored three times and rushed for over 150 yards in lifting the Predators to their third win of the year.
For his efforts we honor Fox Creek's Deondre Baskett as our Acadmey Sports player of the week.
