Sonic Drive-In Player-of-the-Game for October 5 – Deron Reid (Santa Fe)
The Sonic Drive-In Player-of-the-Game for Friday, Oct. 5, is Deron Reid of the Santa Fe (Alachua) football team.
Reid helped lead the Raiders to a 12-7 win at Union County (Lake Butler) thanks to a special play.
The game was tied at the half. The Raiders’ Darrius Powell scored the first points of the game on a rushing TD with 5:18 to play in the third quarter
Santa Fe was pitching a shutout for three quarters. However, the host Tigers got on the board with 10:26 to play in the game on a 3-yard TD run by Hosea Robinson to take a 7-6 lead.
But that’s when Reid made the play of the game.
The junior quarterback fielded the ensuing kickoff at the 19-yard line and returned it 81 yards for the game-winning score. Reid has made plays like that countless times this season.
Santa Fe (3-3), which won only one game all of last season, will return home this Friday to host Trinity Catholic (Ocala).
Every game The Prep Zone will recognize a Player-of-the-Game. The recipient receives a $10 gift certificate courtesy of Sonic Drive-In of Gainesville & Ocala.
