Corbin football's defensive unit named Co-Player of the Week

CORBIN, Ky. (WYMT) - Normally, there is only one Player of the Week.

But, this week, we honor three different players from each of the Mountains' state football finalist teams.

The Corbin Redhounds avenged their 40-21 loss against Boyle County in last year's state championship with a 21-0 win over the Rebels last Friday night.

The Redhounds' defense pitched a shutout while forcing four Rebel turnovers, earning their whole unit our "Player of the Week" title.

"Everybody was just doing their job," said Grant Gibson, senior linebacker/running back. "That's something we focus on, everybody just doing their job and not trying to play out of position or doing too much."

"As a group, we wanna win so bad," said senior linebacker/running back Noah Taylor. "We're doing everything we can to win. It's the only thing that matters. It's not about who gets the tackle or who gets the fumble, interception or anything like that. We just wanna win the game."

"We went into the game wanting to dominate the front line of scrimmage, and we went in there with a chip on our shoulder from last year and we pulled out being more physical I think," said Matthew Masternak, a senior defensive/offensive lineman.

"We just mentally and physically prepared for the game, and we just went out and performed," said senior defensive/offensive lineman Nate Smith.
