Hattiesburg's Walley Named High School Football Player of the Week

After a rough start to the year, Hattiesburg High has started district play a perfect 3-0. That includes a 20-10 win over St. Martin on Friday. A big key in that win was Tigers' quarterback Tristen Walley.

Walley helped lead the Tigers to victory with 268 all-purpose yards. The junior threw for 137 yards and a touchdown along with 131 rushing yards and a score, and Walley says it was a team effort. "It was very special. I couldn't have done it without my offensive line, my wide receivers, or my tight ends. Without them, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish all this."

Hattiesburg head coach Tony Vance says Walley has improved steadily throughout the year, and he's proud of what his quarterback has accomplished. "There's a lot of great players in this area, and I'm honored to have one of mine be named player of the week."
