MANATEE -- A very long and overdue athlete of the week here at the network. In fact, this young man deserves some defensive player of the year looks as well. Our first December recipient is Senior linebacker, Matt Wyatt.

The year Wyatt just turned in for one of the best programs in the State was remarkable. The 5-foot, 9-inch game wrecker totaled 120 tackles, 55 of which were solo, and 25 stuffed the opposition in the backfield.
