If the opening week of the 2017 GHSA football season is any indication, Gwinnett County is going to have another exiting season that will see several county teams across many classifications in the thick of the fight for state titles. Because Gwinnett is home to dozens of Nationally and State ranked football players, there are sure to be several outstanding performances turned in every week that deserve recognition.

With that in mind, Gwinnett Sports Report will select five players whose performances earned a place among our Spotlight Players of the Week. Week 1 includes five players that represent four county schools.

No. 1 - Anthony Grant (RB/LB), Buford: On the offensive side of the ball, Grant rushed for 90 yards on nine carries and scored on a 59-yard run in a 48-17 victory over Hillgrove. On the defensive side, the Tennessee bound Grant had three solo tackles, one for a loss.

 No. 2 - Jake Camarda (K), Norcross: Camarda was good on his only official field goal try (52 yards), placed three of four kickoffs in the end zone, and averaged 46.8 yards on six punts with a long of 59 yards in a 20-17 loss to Colquitt County. It should be noted that the future Georgia Bulldog made a 47-yard attempt on the final play of the game that would've sent the game into overtime, but the snap came just after time expired.

No.3 – Jarren Williams (QB), Central Gwinnett: Williams was 20-of-35 passing for 301 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 51 yards in a 28-24 victory over South Gwinnett.

No.4 - Jalil El-Amin (QB), Duluth: El-Amin racked up 315 yards passing (18-of-28) with two touchdowns in a 37-22 loss to Alcovy. He also scored a touchdown.

No. 5- William Huzzie (WR), Duluth: Huzzie had nine catches for 190 yards and a touchdown.

Note: All scores are courtesy of the Georgia High School Football Historians Association, Georgia Public Broadcasting and other media outlets. If scores or stats are not accurate, it was reported incorrectly.
