Etowah End of Season Awards
MARIETTA — The talk before Friday game was how Etowah was going to stop Tyren Jones, but the vibe was quite different after 10th-ranked Walton’s 21-16 win at Raider Valley Friday.
Jones, the Class AAAAAA rushing leader with 1,675 yards coming into the game, left the game late in the first quarter with a sprained knee. He did not return, and junior tailback D.J. Smith stepped into the void.
Smith rushed for 86 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns. He added five receptions for 109 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown that gave the Raiders (7-2, 5-1 Region 5AAAAAA) their first points of the night on the first play of the second quarter.
“We are more than just one guy,” Walton coach Rocky Hidalgo said. “You can look at our football team and see four BCS football players sitting on the bench with injuries. There have been a thousand opportunities to stack their shoulder pads up and say the season is over with, but they keep fighting. If there is a more resilient team in Georgia, I don’t know who they are.”
