Blount Press Row

Week ending Oct. 21

In this era of the tall, athletic quarterback who can do it all, there’s another one on the way.

Maryville Junior High quarterback Evan Porter is this week’s selection as the Aubrey’s Blount Press Row Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 21. The Rebel leader was 5-of-6 passing for 75 yards and a touchdown in Maryville’s 45-0 shutout of Alcoa in the championship game of the Smoky Mountain Athletic Conference on Saturday at Lenoir City High School. With his legs, Porter, a former Fairview Raider, added 111 yards rushing and three additional touchdowns.

Porter’s outburst came after the Rebels outlasted the Tornadoes, 14-8, in the regular season meeting. With Maryville teammate T.D. Blackman adding 152 all-purpose yards and score, Jack Bristol a 42-yard touchdown catch, the Rebels amassed 356 yards of offense in the championship game.
