Athlete of the Week

Holly Pond's Griffin Morris.

The Cullman Times

Holly Pond's varsity boys couldn't be stopped this past week.

Not by Cold Springs ... 83-53.

Not by West Point ... 76-74.

Not by Susan Moore ... 84-53.

The common denominator in all three of those victories?

Griffin Morris.

The senior scored 19 points against the Eagles, 25 against the Warriors and 28 against the Bulldogs — each a game-high total — to extend Holly Pond's winning streak to five games and its overall record to 7-2 this season.

Need I say anything else? 

With those strong outings, Morris is the easy pick for The Times' Athlete of the Week.

Kyler Chaney (19 points against Cold Springs, 16 against West Point and 12 against Holly Pond), McKinley Garrett (10 points against Cold Springs, eight against West Point and 14 against Susan Moore) and Jake Harris (15 points against Cold Springs and 11 against West Point) also accomplished wonders for the Broncos during the strong three-game stretch.

Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is currently open to all basketball athletes. 

Nominations are encouraged and can be emailed to with the person's name, school and stats.
