Athlete of the Week

Good Hope's Ethan Anderson.

Ethan Anderson wasn't about to let the Raiders lose last Friday night.

The senior running back accumulated 138 yards and three touchdowns on just 16 carries, helping Good Hope secure a 27-24 victory against Central-Florence in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs.

Anderson's scoring scampers covered 9, 2 and 7 yards — the latter of which put the Raiders ahead with less than a minute to go in the contest. He also caught a pair of passes, delivered 21 return yards and corralled five tackles on defense, guiding the Raiders to the second round for the third time in the past four seasons.

He is The Times' Athlete of the Week.

Tanner Malin (13 carries, 112 yards, TD; 5-of-9 passing, 57 yards; three tackles); Jager Burns (12 tackles; a fumble recovery; 23 rushing yards; 25 receiving yards); Paydon Bagwell (12 tackles; a forced fumble); Drew Easterwood (four tackles — one for loss; an interception; a fumble recovery); and Russ Wooten (seven tackles; a quarterback pressure) also provided big outings for Good Hope in the home triumph.

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

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