KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) – Voters picked Dobyns-Bennett running back Tyler Tesnear’s scoring run as the week three Play of the Week.
During last Friday’s game against Bearden, Tesnear didn’t let a grab to the facemask bring him down. A Bearden defender grabbed Tesnear’s face mask in an attempt to force him down, but the Indians’ running back broke free, bounced back up, and ran several yards for a touchdown.
Dobyns-Bennett went on to win 39-14.
Other plays that were in this week’s Play of the Week poll:
- When Elizabethton’s Bryson Rollins heaved one to the end zone during Friday’s game against Sullivan East, wide receiver Zach Hartley was there to catch it. Orton made a beautiful catch in the corner of the endzone with an East defender close behind.
- With just 25 seconds left in the game, the Happy Valley Warriors were down 7-8 against the Hampton Bulldogs. Happy Valley’s Eli Ayers rolled out under pressure and threw toward the endzone where Gabe Nickles dropped to the ground to make the game-winning catch.
