Martinez, Ga--It was far and away the most exciting game of the year, Augusta Christian, in four overtimes beating Ben Lippen 48-41. It was also that game which produced our Operation Football Live player of the week.
Senior quarterback William Banks is not crashing like the rest on wall street, instead he's cashing in and picks up the honor. A big game with light rain falling. Banks threw the ball a dozen times, completing 10 of them with a touchdown included. He also ran the ball 27 times for 207 yards. The highlight material this 50 yarder on third and 30 which went for a score.
"He is one of 11 parts of that offense' said head coach Bruce Lane "He's a big part of it, but I think he'd be the first to give credit to the other guys. Obviously he's a play maker, he can create a lot of things that we do. We try to put him in space and when we put him in space some good things happen."
"Mike Robinson made a great catch. Evan Wells made a great catch in the end zone" said Willaim Banks "I mean it was hard to throw the ball so I couldn't imagine how hard it was to catch them in that weather."
Banks and the rest of the Lions take on Heathwood Hall Friday. But tonight, it's William Banks, our Operation Football Live player of the week.
