Under Armour Athlete of the Week Candidates: Week 8

ROSWELL, GA -- A running back, wide receiver, and quarterback are nominated for the Under Armour Athlete of the Week. Which player deserves to win the award? You decide.

Carlson Carty is this week's first nominee. Going into last Friday's game, the senior running back had never beaten Roswell. Twenty-six carries, 120 yards, and two touchdowns later, Carty and his Centennial teammates had a 17-14 win over the rival Hornets.

Thanks to Carty's impressive performance, the Knights are now second in Region 6-5A.

The second player to be nominated this week is Flowery Branch's Logan Conley. The junior wide receiver only needed seven catches to amass over 200 receiving yards and two scores. The Falcons beat Habersham Central 42-7 and remain undefeated.

McEachern quarterback Dondre Purnell is also up for this week's award. The senior signal caller was crucial in his team's 64-48 win over Hillgrove.

Purnell completed 12 of 16 passes for 252 yards and five touchdowns. He also rushed for over 100 yards and a touchdown.

Vote here for the player who you think most deserves to win Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Under Armour Athlete of the Week.

Voting ends on Sunday, October 17th.
