Newnan had a cross classification showdown with Hart County last week. Newnan has a lot of fire power on offense with Demiko Goodman and Durrell Stegall, but it was defensive tackle Earnest Mitchell who imposed his will on the Bulldog offense.
Mitchell recovered two fumbles and made life miserable on the young Hart County
quarterback. He had several tackles for loss including a sack in the second half
that all but sealed the deal for Newnan. The Cougars shut out a very good Hart
County team, and Mitchell was the big reason why.
For his efforts, Earnest Mitchell has been named the Competitive
Edge Sports/GAVSV Defensive Player of the Week.
Mitchell and his Newnan Cougars are undefeated on the season, but now it's
respect time as they will now face the teeth of their region schedule beginning
with Riverdale tonight.
