The Greene & Phillips Player of the Week award recognizes local athletes for their extraordinary performances on and off the field. This week, we are proud to announce a young quarterback who showcased an incredible game that left everyone in awe.
FOX 10’s Sports Director, Emily Cochran, presented the award on Tuesday afternoon at Millry High School to junior Quarterback Daylon Edmunds. Daylon’s exceptional performance in Friday’s game saw him throw for a staggering 293 yards, culminating in four touchdown passes. Not stopping there, he showcased his versatility by running for 98 yards on just ten carries, securing an additional three touchdowns. With his leadership, Millry High School clinched a dominant 57-0 victory over Washington County. It’s performances like these that highlight why Daylon Edmunds is our Greene & Phillips Player of the Week.
Daylon, humbly acknowledging his achievement, credited his teammates for the support, “It means a lot and just being able to get back to the community you know that put so much into me again me where I am today.”
