Louisa’s Savion Hiter named Falcon Club Player of the Week again
LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -Louisa County freshman Savion Hiter is the Falcon Club Player of the Week.
In the biggest game of the season, Hiter rushed for 242 yards and five touchdowns.
The 14-year-old led Louisa County to a 69-34 win over Albemarle County, helping the Lions clinch the Jefferson District regular season championship.
When asked how he was able to have such a good game against such a good defense, Hiter responded: “Obviously my lineman and my lead blocker, Talley. He was just hitting the mess out of the linebackers, and I was just getting wide open holes and scoring touchdowns.”
“He has such great vision and balance. He’s so fast and he’s a competitive kid,” Coach Will Patrick said.
Hiter now has 21 touchdowns in Louisa County’s nine games. He has already rushed for more than 1100 yards, leading the Lions to a 9-0 record.
“I kind of already accomplished my goal with 1000 yards rushing as a freshman. No one had done that around here, so I had to do it for them,” Hiter said.
Hiter won the Falcon Club Player of the Week award two weeks ago. Since then, the 14-year-old freshman has gotten a couple more scholarship offers from Syracuse and Virginia.
Hiter was at Scott Stadium on Saturday for the Virginia game and got the offer from Coach Tony Elliot after the game.
“It was a great experience; the atmosphere was great, and I just liked the coaches a lot. [Coach Elliot] was just telling me to stay humble and don’t get ahead of myself with all these offers and the recruiting process,” Hiter said.
