Louisa's Markel Grooms Named Falcon Club Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:


Louisa's Markel Grooms is the Falcon Club Player of the Week.

The Louisa running back rushed for 170 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Lions' win at Spotsylvania on Friday.

Grooms also played the entire game on defense with 5 tackles and quarterback hurries.

This first game was a huge bounce back for Grooms being that he spent most of last season recovering from a torn ACL. 

Head coach, Jon Meeks said, "he never quite got to 100% from that injury being only 7-8 months removed from surgery.Then the last game against Western Albemarle he played really well. I think that carried him on into the off season and his work ethic. Now he's two years removed and he's looking like what we thought Markel would always look like."

Grooms said, "It's breathtaking. I'm a little star struck. I don't know what to say. My big lineman - I mean, they're not all big but they get the job done and I really cherish them. Because without them, I wouldn't have did what I did last Friday."
