CORBIN, Ky. (WYMT) - It's now time to announce the WYMT Player of the Week for week zero. The honor goes to Corbin's Matt Jewell.
In the Redhounds' comeback win over George Rogers Clark last Friday, Jewell rushed the ball 14 times for 173 yards, and he also recorded 11 tackles on defense. Like any good running back, Jewell gives all the credit to his offensive line.
"I give full credit to my line. I mean, yeah, I ran to through a whole I guess you could say, but, you know, my line, you can't give them enough credit. My backs blocked extremely well. They gave me the opportunity. And so, given the opportunity, I took it. And I just tried to do it, I guess," says Jewell.
