Posted: Updated:


Woodberry Forest junior defensive back Nathaniel Tyrell is this week's Falcon Club Player of the Week.

Tyrell said, "it definitely puts a big drive in me, I definitely have a little chip on my shoulder now. Just gotta keep working in the weight room, in the classroom and something good will come out of it."

Tyrell accounted for three of Woodberry's six touchdowns in a 45-15 win over Flint Hill.

Tyrell returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown and also had two punt returns for touchdowns.

"playing hard the entire game. They caught a big pass on me on the first play and I just let that brush off, said Tyrell. He elaborated, "Late in the fourth quarter I got touchdown when returned it."

Woodberry head coach, Clint Alexander, said, "it feels great, I was a defensive guy and it felt like we always never got any of the recognition that the offensive guys do so we're pretty proud of him."
