Athlete of the Week: Glover hauls the load at Claxton


    As the 2010 season began, Claxton was searching for a replacement for departed All-Region running back Jamalcolm Morgan.
    It’s no longer the power running game that is leading the way for the Tigers, but junior receiver LaBron Glover has emerged as Claxton’s biggest offensive threat and someone that can be leaned on in the clutch.
    “We weren’t too sure exactly what kind of team we would be coming into the year,” said Glover. “I didn’t know how much I would contribute, but the important part was to practice hard and keep getting better.”
    Glover, along with the rest of the Tigers, have come a lot farther than many had expected this season. With last week’s victory over Bryan County, Claxton has put itself in position for a win-and-survive matchup with rival Metter this Friday.
    The speedy Glover was key in last week’s win, catching four passes for 104 yards and rushing for 30 more. Now, the Tigers are just one win away from heading to the Region 3-A play-in round for a third straight year.
    “We’ve been intense this week,” said Glover. “We’ve all got faith in ourselves. We just have to go and get one more.”
