Last week was nothing short of a must-win for Patrician Academy as it looked to rebound from a region loss and keep pace amid a difficult grouping that includes contenders Jackson, Lowndes, South Choctaw, Southern and Sparta: five teams with a combined win-loss record of 12-4.

So the Saints did what they did so often last season and fed the rock to explosive tailback Kaleb Sessions. And then they fed it to him again and again. And, as he did so often last season in the team’s run-up to the AISA Class A state title game, Sessions produced in a big, big way.

He tallied 220 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in a 28-16 win over Lowndes. That was enough to keep his team in the thick of AISA, Class A Region 1. But it was also enough to earn him ESPN 104.9 Tuesday Night Coaches Show Player of the Week honors. Sessions spent time with the show’s crew Tuesday night at Batter Up Sports Grill and received a commemorative T-shirt as well as a gift certificate from The Gold Mine for his efforts.

Patrician steps out of region play to face Clarke Prep this week.
