Kendrick senior Jamar Comar didn't think it was a huge deal.
Scoring a go-ahead touchdown from 3 yards out and intercepting a deep ball on the final play of the game, to him, was just being in the right position to make a play.
But looking at the big picture indicates differently. They were two plays that helped Kendrick get its second win of the season, 12-8, over Bremen, which already had wins against Chattahoochee County and Jordan and put up 35 points against undefeated Heard County.
It doesn't make the season a success yet, but it helps Kendrick get on the right track.
For his efforts, he is the Ledger-Enquirer's High School Football Player of the Week.
He spoke Monday with the L-E about the two plays and how the team can continue to improve.
Question: What was your thought process on those last couple of plays to ensure the win for you guys?
Answer: It was a last-second thing. I saw they were spreading their wide receivers out, so I knew they were going deep. We just dropped back in a cover-2. I looked up and saw the ball, and I just caught. I thought about returning it for another touchdown, but I just ran it out of bounds just to save the game.
Question: How do you maintain your focus from this game and continue it into the future?
Answer: You focus on staying disciplined, hitting, locking up -- things like that. Never let a man deep. We've got to get better on offense and moving the ball well in crucial situations.
