Blue Devils follow Lester's lead to hot start
090310 SHS FOOTBALL 04 web
Statesboro High's Aaron Lester is congratulated by teammates on the sidelines after scoring the game-winning touchdown against Washington County Friday.
He may not be the biggest player on the football field, but no one stands taller for Statesboro High than 5-foot-7 senior running back Aaron Lester. Lester’s leadership and determination have never been as evident as they were Friday night against a tough Washington County squad. With running back Michael Summers injured and Dequan Daniels also hobbled, Statesboro turned to Lester throughout the second half and he responded with 92 yards on 14 carries, including a 26-yard touchdown run that brought the Devils from a 14-13 deficit to a 19-14 win in the final minutes .
