Athlete of the Week: Austin Averitt - December 11th

Posted: Updated:

Parkway's Austin Averitt recalled a conversation he had with his defense during halftime of last week's semifinal game with Covington.

"If you want to win this game you have to bring it," said Averitt, remembering what he told his teammates. "It's the last 24 minutes of your high school career unless you take it up a notch.

The Panthers would come from behind and beat Covington after a sensational defensive performance by Averitt who had two interceptions, a blocked PAT and a critical fourth down stop.

"He's the guy that reads the blocking schemes well and is always around the football so the other night he dropped just in the right spots and jumped up and made very athletic plays," said David Feaster, Parkway head coach.
