CES/GAVSV Player of the Week - Offense
Last week vs. South Cobb, Barrows had 272 yards and two touchdowns rushing on only 14 carries.
For his efforts he has been names this week's Competitive Edge Sports/GAVSV Offensive Player of the Week.
"Two weeks ago against Campbell I got a career high in carries with 20," said Barrows. "I had over 200 yards in that game too. I think that was a school record having back to back 200 yard games. Against South Cobb it was just a matter of finding the cutback lanes. The offensive line did a good job, and I could cut it back. My speed has gotten better, and I was able to have a 67 yard run right before halftime. Then I had a 64 yard run in the third quarter too."
Barrows is being recruited by schools from across the region, and there is still some question on which position he will play on the next level.
"I've got an official visit set up to Illinois (12-5). North Carolina is a team that is recruiting me at safety. Well, they were. I sent them a tape, and Coach Bunting called me back and said that I could come in and have a shot at running back too. I have offers from Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Southern Miss, and Ole Miss. Everyone else is recruiting me to play running back."
"I don't really have any favorites right now. If I had to name my five visits, they would probably be Illinois, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, Ole Miss, or maybe Arkansas. Arkansas has been sending me a lot of letters. What's surprising is that I haven't heard from Florida or Alabama in a long time, but that's OK, I'll just have to look in another direction."
Despite the slow start, McEachern still has an outside chance at making the playoffs this year, and with Barrows leading the way, I wouldn't count them out.
