Athlete of the Week

Good Hope's Tanner Malin.

Tanner Malin, to put it mildly, made plays last Friday night.

Good Hope's junior quarterback registered 190 yards and four touchdowns on 16 carries to lift his team past Oneonta 34-7, the Raiders' first win in seven attempts against the Redskins.

His touchdown dashes covered 1, 2, 80 and 88 yards, respectively. Malin also completed 3-of-5 passes for 32 yards, and recorded two tackles and a pass breakup on defense.

Those dynamic contributions helped the Raiders notch hosting rights in the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Malin is The Times' Athlete of the Week.

He edged Cullman's Jaden Kay, who stuffed the stat sheet in a 30-29 win over Muscle Shoals.

Kay netted 10 tackles, returned a blocked field goal 72 yards for a touchdown, snagged an interception and knocked the ball back in play on a successful onside kick that led to a game-winning field goal. 

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.
