It isn’t everyday a player stands out in a losing effort, so significantly, that he warrants individual recognition like this week’s recipient, Drake Alsup. Regardless of how the game ended this past Friday night for the Indians (who lost to Westmoreland 50-32), there can be no question Drake Alsup is pulling his share of the load in multiple phases of his teams’ overall performance. Alsup, on the year, has numerous 100 yards receiving nights for the Indians, through its first 8 games, and, although the Indians lost October 12, they are still 5-3 on the year and 2-2 in district play, putting them firmly in the playoff picture. East Robertson travels to play White House Heritage on October 19 and will be heavily favored to run its record to 6-3 after the game with the winless Patriots (0-8).

Against Westmoreland, Drake Alsup caught two TD passes, including one from 56 yards away, where he caught a screen and exhibited his separation speed to leave the Westmoreland back-end in the dust, and the other from around the twenty yard line, where he was able to catch the pass short of the goal line and use his length to stretch across the plane. If you look at this prospects frame, 6-2, 182 pounds, it is easy to see why the Class of 2020 prospect would embody a difficult match-up for a HS, back-four, defender.

Alsup, in addition to be a Class of 2020 WR prospect, also plays in the Indians’ defensive backfield, returns kicks, and is a long snapper. Long snapping is a skill, by itself, which has paid for many a young man’s education. Take a minute to look at the linked highlights below and you will notice Alsup contributed, against Westmoreland, on defense, in the special teams’ phase both with a sizeable kick-return and being perfect on long snaps on the evening, and with his contributions on offense both catching and scoring the football. Certainly, there can be no important player on any football team than one who contributes in all three critical phases to his team’s efforts.

Congratulations to Drake Alsup  of East Robertson High School for being selected this week’s Stewart Williams Furniture Company’s Robertson County Player of the Week. Join us next week as we anoint a new recipient.
