WALB PLAYER OF THE WEEK (10/31/13): Carlson's punt return sparks Eagle win

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Terrell Academy's Raleigh Carlson earned Player of the Week honors thanks to his special team's play against Sherwood Christian Academy last week.

He was able to return a punt for a touchdown that gave his Eagles team a 6-0 lead. Carlson says he saw his team needed a spark early and credits the rest of his special teams teammates for helping make the play.

"The offense started off pretty shaky, and we needed a good return to get us sparked up," Carlson said. "It was a short punt and it bounced right into my hands, and we had great blocking on it."

The Eagles travel to Camilla to take on Westwood this Friday.
