Athlete of the Week

Fairview's Parker Martin.

Parker Martin, The Times' reigning All-Area Player of the Year, is off to a flying start in 2020.

The two-way junior standout did a little bit of everything for the Aggies in last week's 41-14 win over Vinemont, picking up right where he left last season.

He completed 7 of 9 passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns — 19 yards to Eli Frost and 13 yards to Caden Jennings — claimed 95 yards and two touchdowns (25 and 39 yards) on eight carries and provided six tackles for a defense that pitched a shutout in the first half.

Martin is The Times' Athlete of the Week.

He edged out Good Hope's Colton Bagwell, who corralled 202 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 33 carries in a 31-14 win against West Point.

Fairview's Tyler Simmons put together a strong performance last week as well.

The junior running back carried the ball 14 times for 149 yards and two touchdowns.

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

Nominations can be sent to with the person's name, school and statistics.
