Bassfield's Daniels awarded player of the week

Bassfield's Daniels awarded player of the week

Playoff time is usually when the big time players show up. That is exactly what Bassfield running back Trodrick Daniels did against Pisgah.

The senior rushed for 271 yards and five touchdowns in the Yellow Jackets' win. Head coach Lance Mancuso says Daniels is a vital part of the Bassfield squad. "The kids feed off him and the younger kids feed off his energy.  He's been able to set himself above everyone else. He's kind of been the energy that's fueled us this season."

While Daniels got the bulk of the carries Friday, Bassfield is used to spreading the ball around. Daniels knows it was a team effort. "They're all good. We don't get mad because someone gets the ball the most. We all block for each other. And whoever has a great game, they have a great game."

Bassfield faces Taylorsville in the third round of the 2A playoffs on Friday.
