TFS coaches name Indians of the Week


Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for Jan. 22-27. 


Eighth-grader Barrett Whitener of Clayton was named an Indian of the Week by middle school girls basketball coach Rick Hammock. “Barrett has shown a great deal of versatility playing any number of positions while starting and coming off the bench,” Hammock said. “Last week in a key contest against league rival Highlands, Barrett again showed her selflessness by jumping into the starting lineup in an unfamiliar position – low post – and helped lead the team to a hard-fought 41-26 victory. Barrett had five rebounds, three assists and three steals while playing a terrific all-around game. Her humility, hard work and positive attitude have been an inspiration to her teammates and coach all season long.” 


Seventh-grader Matt Cochran of Demorest was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school swim coach Susan Nichols. “Matt has been swimming at TFS for two years,” Nichols said. “This past weekend he had strong races and earned team points with a 10 percent improvement in the breaststroke with a time of 41.06. His performance earned seventh place on the TFS middle school swimming legacy list. Matt also dropped time in the 100-yard individual medley and in the 100-yard freestyle. He was a part of the ‘A’ relay team, competed in the 200-yard medley and the 100-yard freestyle.”


Freshman Brinson Hall of Mt. Airy was named an Indian of the Week by varsity girls basketball coach Tom Tilley. “Brinson had a career-high ten points in our game with number seven ranked Prince Avenue Christian Academy,” Tilley said. “She also had three assists and three rebounds. Aside from her performance against a top-ranked team, Brinson displays GREAT character throughout the season. She goes full speed all the time and is always positive.”


Sophomore Samuel Dunlap of Lakemont was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity swim coach Annette Cochran. “Samuel is a member of the 200-yard freestyle ‘A’ relay team which will be swimming at the state meet in early February,” Cochran said. “Samuel has worked hard this year to improve his performances in multiple strokes. He dropped time over the course of the season and is now achieving personal records in his breaststroke and freestyle. Samuel raced the 100-yard butterfly and improved his time by more than five percent at the recent metro meet.”
