Chief of the Tribe, Week One Player of the Week

Week One action is in the books and AllOnGeorgia’s Chattooga County Player of the Week honors go to junior receiver, Devin Price. After sitting out of football his freshman year, Price got back into the action midway through his sophomore season after coaches convinced him to give it another try. Price had committed his time and energy to baseball and basketball where he was a two-sport standout. Football coaches felt confident that he could add a third sport to his resume and they have not been disappointed.

Price had 5 carries for 62 yards on the ground and added 3 catches for 57 yards and two touchdowns. His second touchdown catch put the Indians ahead for the first time in the game with 1:52 remaining in the fourth quarter, 28-27. In addition to his offensive contributions, Price also had multiple tackles as a safety, and a pass break up.

The 16 year-old junior also runs track and maintains a 3.7 GPA as a scholar/athlete. Price is an avid fan of the Florida State Seminoles and the Carolina Panthers and he plans on being a professional athlete, although he hasn’t narrowed his goal to a single sport. His role model is his mother, Katie Price, an employee with United Community Bank. Price attributes his coaches with his philosophy that being a “winner” is far from just coming out on top on a Friday night. Winners are people that know how to take a beating and keep on fighting.

Price’s pre-game ritual includes sitting in the locker room and talking to defensive captain, T.J. Adams about the defense. “I tell myself that I’ll play my heart out no matter what the outcome is. Not for myself, but for the men that go out on the field with me,” says Price. Devin feels that his teammates have become his “brothers” and he praises their hype, love and effort in saying that, “no matter what, I know that they have my back.”
