Williston, SC--It's playoff time and the stars are out in full force. For Williston Elko, they're a team with so many weapons. On Friday, their biggest weapon went off in every aspect possible. That's why we honor the Blue Devils Dexter Staley as our Opereation Football Live player of the week.
In their big shootout win over Ware Shoals, Staley did it all. Ran for three touchdowns, threw a half back option pass for another, caught a touchdown, picked off a pass, and even blocked a punt. Yea, that's pretty good. It was for Williston who used that performance to reach the state finals. If you're looking for a prime time player, you've come to the right place!
"It felt good, coach gave me the ball a lot" said Dexter Staley "Coming into the game he said to win the game and go to state, he was going to need me so he said he'd give me the ball and I do the best that I can."
"I've stated it in the last couple of weeks he's the best comptitor we go" said head coach Dwayne Garrick "Friday night he took over, I mean there was no way he was going to let us lose that football game."
And yes, Staley is only a sophomore as he's elevated his game here in the post season. For his efforts Friday night, Williston Elko's Dexter Staley is our Operation Football Live player of the week.
