Junior Nick Price, the CiCi’s Pizza Chapin Co-Player of the Week, has been outstanding at cornerback while also being one of the Midlands’ top kick returners for coach Justin Gentry’s Eagles.
On Thursday, Gentry said this about his speedy playmaker’s role in last week’s 38-7 win over North Myrtle Beach in the third round of the 4A playoffs: “They (NMB) basically didn’t throw to his side of the field and on special teams, they didn’t kick the ball anywhere near Nick. That shows the the kind of respect he has earned on the football field field this fall. It’s kind of the ultimate compliment.”
Price and his Chapin teammates host Hartsville in the 4A Lower State final tonight at 7:30.
Great job and good luck tonight, Nick!
