If Toby Pee keeps this up, he may be running straight toward the state Class 4A Back of the Year honor.
The senior Sardis running back rushed for 155 yards and four touchdowns and had a 90-yard kickoff return for a score in the Lions’ 42-40 Region 7 win over Guntersville in overtime Friday night.
For his effort, Pee was named the top player in this week’s Gadsden Times' Dirty Dozen. Pee added three 2-point conversion runs, including one in overtime after his brother, Braun Pee, scored the go-ahead touchdown. For the season, Pee has 1,096 yards rushing and 333 receiving to go with 24 touchdowns (three receiving).
