Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this week is Mavrick Pitts, a member of the Football Team at North Judson-San Pierre High School.
Mavrick led his team to a 40-14 victory over arch-rival Knox with outstanding play on both sides of the ball. Offensively, the 5-10, 173-pound running back accounted for 22 of his teams points, rushing for 3 second-half touchdowns that turned a close game into a route. His 14 and 10 yard scores were topped by a 70-yard sprint for a score as he carried the ball 12 times for 164 yards.
In addition, the veteran Senior kicked 2 extra points and ran for a 2-point conversion as the Jays evened their record at 1-1.
Defensively Mavrick was the second leading tackler on the squad with 5 stops.
Mavrick will be featured next week here on the “Saturday Sportsline with Nathan Welter” on K99.3 and will have a featured picture and story on wkvi.com.
Congratulations to Mavrick Pitts of North Judson-San Pierre High School, our “Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week”
