Parker Martin and the rest of the Aggies weren't ready to go home last Friday night.
The senior quarterback helped guide Fairview to a 35-21 win against Russellville, sending the Purple and Gold to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1994.
Martin completed 13-of-22 passes for 125 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He also claimed 102 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries. Defensively, he snagged an interception and registered several tackles.
Martin's touchdown tosses covered 7 yards — a wild completion to Tyler Simmons on the last play of the first half after the ball was snapped over his head — and 12 yards — a thread-the-needle completion to Jameson Goble on a crucial 4th-and-goal play. He ran it from 1 yard and 38 yards away, respectively — the latter of which sealed the win for the Aggies.
He is The Times' Athlete of the Week.
Simmons (16 carries, 74 yards, touchdown); Eli Frost (12 carries, 81 yards); Bryson Chamness (six catches, 50 yards); Caden Jennings (three catches, 49 yards) and Ethan Bice (several big plays on defense) also produced solid outings for Fairview.
Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is open to all local athletes.
