Zakye Barker

Who: Norcross’ Zakye Barker

Position: Linebacker

Class: Senior

Highlights: Had 13 tackles (six for losses), a caused fumble, two big hits and one quarterback hurry in a 7-0 win over South Gwinnett

Coach Keith Maloof’s take: “He played with a lot of heart, a lot of passion and a lot of will when the game was so close. Offensively, when the defense was playing so good and because of the impact he has and our defense has, we were not wanting to do something offensively to give them the game. He’s touted as one of the top linebackers in the state and the nation and he’s been playing like it.”
