3 THS players in "Spotlight"

By Michael Butler

Three Tallassee athletes have been recognized by the Alabama High School Athletic Association in its weekly AHSAA Spring Spotlight.

Will Blocker, Jackson Rhodes and Elijah Bridgman were listed among the honorees for their accolades last week.

Blocker tied his own record in Tallassee soccer with five goals in the Tigers' 8-1 win over Lee on March 31. Blocker also had an assist. He set a THS program record with five goals earlier this season on Feb. 15 in Tallassee's 8-3 win against Lee.

Two THS baseball players were also in the Spotlight. Jackson Rhodes went 2-for-4 with a homerun and pitched six innings to get the win in the Tigers' 12-4 area-opening victory against Brewbaker Tech on March 30. Elijah Bridgman picked up the win on the mound in the second game vs. the Rams. Bridgman threw six innings in the 14-0 shutout giving up one hit and striking out ten.
