The Laurens County Touchdown Club is proud to announce that for games played on October 6th, the Player of the week is junior wide receiver and special teams player Josh Goodwin of Laurens District High School.
Goodwin is a wide receiver and special teams player for the Laurens District School Raiders as they defeated Riverside 18– 17 in a hard fought region contest Friday night.
Josh Goodwin, a Laurens District High School junior and two sport athlete had three catches for 114 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders. Along with his three receptions against Riverside he also made three key blocks on an important drive the Raiders had in the 3rd quarter.
Laurens District High School Head Coach Daryl Smith stated, “Josh Goodwin is a very talented two sport athlete playing both football and baseball. He has great hands and speed at the receiver position. What makes him a great player though is he does the things that don’t show up in the stats. He works hard in the weight room, practices hard every day and blocks well for his teammates.”
