Week 1 top defensive performer of the week is Jeremiah Fletcher of Helix high school. Jeremiah, senior captain, accounted for 15 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery and the game sealing interception in Helix’s 28-22 win over ,out of section opponent, Cajon in Fridays season opener. The win is huge for the Scotties after Cajon bested Helix in last season’s opener 43-3 but in that match-up Fletcher was playing defensive end. The switch to linebacker allowed for Fletcher to really showcase all of his abilities and be there for the team when it mattered most.
“It felt amazing being able to lead my team and help in any way I could, so we could get the win,” describes Jeremiah after his big game.
The Scotties schedule doesn’t let up as the season progresses. Next Helix host Utah’s 18th ranked Herriman high school this Friday (9/30 @7pm)
