MOREAUVILLE (KALB) -- With district play looming, Avoyelles football coach Andy Boone felt like he needed a spark from his team. He got just what he wanted last Friday, courtesy of Marquis Alexander. The senior running back only had 15 carries in a win over Northside, but that was all he needed, rushing for 325 yards -- a 21.6 yards-per-carry average -- and two touchdown to capture Athlete of the Week honors for week five. More importantly though, it led Avoyelles to its second win of the season.
Alexander and the Mustangs remain at home this week as they get set to begin district 3-3A play against the Jena Giants.
