Seniors Sha'kil Mosley and Darrell Minifee were named on Monday as the Jacksonville Indians' Players of the Week for the Palestine game.
Mosley has emerged as one of the Tribe's leading defensive players thus far this season.
On Friday, Mosley racked up 11 tackles and had one forced fumble in the Indians' 34-20 loss to their rivals from the west.
“Sha'kil (Mosley) leads by example for us,”Jacksonville head coach Chris Taber said. “He's not one of our most vocal guys, but when he gets out on that football field he is all business and he gets his job done in a way that sets a good example for our players.”
Minifee, a promising wideout, had eight catches for 84 yards in last week's game.
He also caught Jacksonville's first touchdown against Palestine — a 30-yard strike from quarterback Dadrian Franklin that came in the fourth period.
The Tribe (1-1) will be looking to get back on the winning track when they visit Gilmer, who is also 1-1 on the year, on Friday night.
Kick off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m..
