Tim Monihan and Farmers Insurance recognize sophomore starting quarterback William Yarbrough as the ninth Player of the Week for the 2020-2021 sports season.
“Executing plays is what I have best learned from every game,” Yarbrough said.
This is William’s first year starting for the Starr’s Mill Panthers, and the team has started 4-1. William continues to improve every Friday night in his throwing game and leadership skills.
“He is a sophomore quarterback, which we don’t get very often,” head coach Chad Phillips said. “He has had a whole lot of pressure put on him and he has responded well.”
In last week’s game against Harris County, William completed four of his seven passes for 61 yards. His strengths include reading the defense and running the ball when he has the chance. He has 32 rushing attempts this season.
Starr’s Mill travels to Northgate this Friday to face another challenging region opponent. Go support your Panthers, kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. in Newnan.
