Here are our nominees for the week of September 25, 2023.
Ethan Ellington, Howard, LB/RB, SR
Ethan Ellington is a 5'11 215 LBS senior leader on both sides of the ball for the Huskies. Offensively, he’s emerged as a threat out of the backfield, particularly in the red zone, carrying the ball seven times for 38 yards and a pair of touchdowns. On defense, Ellington leads a unit that has allowed just 11 points a game. He has tallied 12 tackles, one tackle for loss and a sack.
Ellington has notched almost a career total of 140 tackles and 5.5 sacks
Kamren Reese, Stockbridge, DL, SR
Kamren Reese is a 6'1 215 LBS Defensive Lineman at Stockbridge High School. The three-year varsity starter ended his junior season with 19 tackles for loss, 15 sacks and made the All-State Team for his region, and for the last two seasons, he's been awarded Defensive Lineman of the Year for the Tigers. One of Reese's hobbies includes working out, and over the Summer, he was able to put on at least 10lbs to help improve himself as a defensive lineman and learn the linebacker position. His other hobbies include studying film, cooking, camping, board games, learning how to navigate social media and helping his younger brother, who joined the Tigers team last season.
He currently has an offer from Western Kentucky and hopes to garner more attention this season. Reese says while his dream is to go power five, no matter the offer he will give 100% on the field and in the classroom.
Jaden Brock, North Gwinnett, DE, SR
Jaden Brock is a 6'4 230 LBS Senior Defensive End at North Gwinnett High School. He has the frame and the strength to take down his offensive opponents, along with the speed that has forced many quarterbacks to simply throw away the ball in an effort to avoid the sack. In week two of this season, he was named Player of the Game and Gwinnett Daily's Defensive Player of the Week with an impressive four sacks, six and a half tackles, and three and a half tackles for loss. A member of National Honor Society and Beta Club, Brock is a dual-varsity scholar athlete with a 3.9 GPA. As a basketball player, he is a force to be reckoned with on the court. During his last AAU season with the North Atlanta Orangemen, he led his team to win the Big Shots MB Jam Live 17u Gold Division championship and earned MVP of the tournament. He is a servant leader on and off the field, volunteering in the community with organizations such as Happyfeat and North Gwinnett Co-Op, as well as tutoring in his spare time. Having excelled in North Gwinnett's CHARGE North STEM program, Brock looks to pursue a degree in engineering, while playing football at the next level.
Jayvaughn Dunn, Howard, OT, SR
Jayvaughn is a 6'4 360 LBS Senior Offensive Tackle that leads Howard's efficient and dynamic offense. Thanks in part to running behind his imposing frame, seven different Howard regulars are averaging at least 4 yards per carry.
Taylor Holloman, Druid Hills, LB/RB, SR
Taylor Holloman is 5'8 170 LBS Linebacker and Running Back at Druid Hills. He leads his county in assisted tackles and is in the top ten list for total tackles. The senior runs a 4.8 40-yard dash and has an offer from the Georgia Warhawks.
