2014/15 – 7th Grade Winner
There are few words that describe Dawson Ellington’s game, but here are a few, amazing, incredible, unstoppable and smooth. This Atlanta Vikings athlete had 22 rushing TD’s and 1624 rushing yards and rarely played pass the 2nd quarter because his team was often up by 21 points by that point. A National Sports Report youth football All America, B2C Player of the Year and an Eastbay All American Game Top Performer, Ellington was often a man among boys as he used his incredible speed and agility to slash defenses in to minced meat on his way to a win. Dawson could also line up as a WR racking up 7 TD receptions –and 781 yds receiving. Dawson was equally as dominant on defense amassing 7 pics – 3 pic 6’s and 69 tackles, 23 for loss.
An honor student, Ellington’s best quality is his intelligence that translated on and off the field. This player was one of the best players our committee had seen at this level, leading to 5 first place votes out of 6 possible votes. Congratulations to Dawson Ellington for winning the Platinum Star Award as the 7th Grade Player of the Year!!!
