The Allstate Athlete of the Week award goes to senior captain of the football team Jared Worley. Worley is listed as a wide receiver and outside linebacker for the Chargers but he does so much more for the team. He is deceptively quick and very intelligent on the field.
For the season Jared averages over five tackles per game on defense for the Chargers with 58 total tackles. He has also scored in almost every way imaginable for his team. He has at least one touchdown scored for Northwood in each of the following categories: Touchdown Reception, Kickoff Return for TD, Punt Return For TD, Fumble Return For TD, and Interception Return For TD. Jared has three interceptions total for Northwood and is a leader on the defensive side of the ball.
Worley and his teammates travel to Northern Guilford on Friday for a challenging first round playoff matchup. His leadership skills will be necessary this week to help the Chargers advance to the next round.
Congratulations to Jared for being named the Allstate Athlete of the Week and good luck on Friday!
