My pick has to go to D’Vonte Price this week.
Price returned from a lengthy injury and acted no time getting back to his scoring ways with three touchdowns.
Even missing a majority of the season, Price needed just the one playoff game to get his name back on the list of area’s top rushers and receivers.
My pick goes to D’Vonte Price.
He returned from injury with a bang for Charlotte in last week’s playoff win over Boca Ciega and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
With star running back Maleek Williams sidelined with an ankle injury, Price returned from a six-week absence and stepped in to score three touchdowns, finishing with 117 total yards. He had two scores on the ground and caught another to help the Tarpons build a 35-0 lead over the Tornadoes midway through the third quarter.
He was the difference maker in Charlotte’s first leg of the regional playoffs.
