Pacelli Vikings named Athletes of the Week - WRBL

Pacelli Vikings named Athletes of the Week

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Pacelli Vikings are one of the hottest teams in the area, 4-0 in 2013 after a 55-14 win over Central, Talbotton last week.

For that, they are the last WRBL Athletes of the Week.

"[Quarterback] Wyatt [Petterson] made some key, clutch reads during the game," said junior running back Keandre Ashley, who ran for 141 yards and caught a touchdown against the Golden Hawks. "Chris Rehak, he just ran over everybody and it made it easy for me to get through the holes."

Rehak is a junior offensive and defensive tackle who is already gaining some interest at the next level.

"I think we're getting a good surge with each other," he said. "We all know each other. We just know how to play with each other."

It does not get any easier for the Vikings. This week they host their arch rivals, the Brookstone Cougars. Brookstone is 2-2 on the year and looking up in the region 4-A standings at Pacelli, but head coach Randy Grace knows records can be deceiving.

"We went through our first part of our non-region schedule a little easier than we did last year, so we feel like we're an improved team," Grace said. "But they're really good over there. We've got to come out and we've got to play hard and see what happens."

    Instead of destroying them, The Columbus Police Department is selling hundreds of seized guns. Some of the guns were used in crimes, others were found on the road- all of them now headed back to the streets.“The policeman in me says I’d rather not see that gun back on the street, we’ve already gotten a hold of it once, but you’ve got 550 guns- will every one of them be used in a crime? No. Some of them will be sold to someone that will enjoy the use of that gun for the rest of their life and ...
