Chiefs' Trent earns weekly honor

Douglas Fritz • Sep 10, 2019 at 1:00 PM

Cherokee’s Collin Trent had his hands on the ball most of the night.

But it was one time when he didn’t take a snap that preserved the win. Trent’s diving interception inside the Chiefs’ 5-yard line protected a 27-23 win over Morristown East. It added to an already big game for Trent, who was chosen as the Johnson City Press/Times News player of the week Monday.

Here’s the honor roll:
