Athlete of the Week: Brown clutch for Devils


    Dequan Daniels may not have seen any varsity action on the football field last season, but anyone who saw Daniels, now a sophomore, take on the 100-meter dash during track and field season knew what was coming this year.
    Armed with blazing speed, Daniels gashed the Effingham County defense for 201 yards and scored three touchdowns — all on runs of at least 20 yards — as Statesboro improved to 5-1 on the season and took a lead in the Region 2A-AAAA race.
    The yardage set a new career high for Daniels, who has assumed more of a role in the Blue Devils’ rushing attack throughout the past few weeks.
    “I just get after it on every play,” said Daniels. “If the ball comes to me, I try to make a play. If not, I find my man to block. I’m getting more comfortable every week. During track season, it’s all about building speed, but now at football practice I’m getting stronger and that helps with breaking tackles and making big plays.
    This week, Daniels could have another big showing as Statesboro travels to Guyton to take on South Effingham in another important sub-region contest.
