Athlete of the Week

Fairview's Tyler Simmons.

Tyler Simmons gave it everything he had last Friday night.

The junior running back capped off a phenomenal performance against West Point by converting a crucial 2-point conversion with less than two minutes left to help the Aggies ultimately collect a 28-27 victory over the Warriors — the program's first win over West Point since 2010.

Simmons finished the night with 117 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries.

Defensively, he added a team-high 15 tackles to go along with an interception.

He is The Times' Athlete of the Week.

Simmons edged out Cullman's Max Dueland, who accounted for 129 total yards and four touchdowns in a 48-6 win against Hazel Green.

Parker Martin (163 total yards and a touchdown), Eli Frost (75-yard fumble return for a touchdown) and Eli Speegle (11 tackles) also contributed to Fairview's victory.

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