Lumberton's Daylon Burks named Player of the week

Daylon Burks is no stranger to big games on Friday nights. He continued his great season in Lumberton's win over Bogue Chitto.

The senior athlete rushed for 172 yards and four touchdowns on offense while compiling seven tackles and an interception on defense. Burks helped lead the Panthers to a 46-8 win to stay unbeaten in region play at 3-0.

Burks has been the feature back for the Panthers all season long, and he has not disappointed. He has rushed for a whopping 1544 yards and 22 touchdowns in just eight games this season averaging 9.8 yards per carry.

Next up for Burks and Lumberton is a trip to Mount Olive for a region matchup on Friday.
