Player of the week: Goodson#039;s tackles, INTs lead Patriots to homecoming win

Corey Goodson made sure Pike Liberal Arts School wouldn't lose to Tuscaloosa Academy.

Goodson was all over the field for the Patriot defense Friday night, roaming sideline-to-sideline and making 17 tackles and adding two interceptions as Pike Lib celebrated its homecoming with a 34-17 win.

&#8220What a game for Corey,” PLAS coach Steven Kilcrease said after the win. &#8220I asked the defense and Corey individually to step up, and he did. He never left the field.”

Goodson's courageous performance earns him Player of the Week honors from the Messenger.
