Pritchett accounts for six TDs en route to Player of the Week honors

IMG_0891Cordarius Pritchett may not be able to fly under the radar much longer. The Marengo High junior has quietly been putting together an impressive season. Last Friday night against rival A.L. Johnson, his on-field success got a lot louder.

Pritchett led his team to its first win over the Eagles since 2011 as he completed 9 of 16 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown. He also ran the ball 24 times for 133 yards and five scores on the night. And, as if that were not enough, the signal-caller made good on the only two successful Panther conversion attempts of the game, including the double-overtime conversion that proved to be the game winner.

Pritchett also played well on defense, recording four tackles in the contest and intercepting his fourth pass of the season.

Pritchett currently has 866 passing yards on the year to go along with 10 touchdowns while completing his passes at nearly a 63 percent clip. The Panthers’ leader also has 312 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Most importantly, his squad sits at 3-2 and has every opportunity to host a first-round playoff game.

Tuesday night, Pritchett earned ESPN 104.9 Player of the Week honors and spent a portion of the evening with the show’s crew at Batter Up Sports Grill in Demopolis where he also received a commemorative T-shirt.
