Barber, Adams awarded offensive and defensive MVP awards

Bainbridge offensive lineman Hudson Barber and defensive tackle Darius Adams were selected as “In the Game” magazine’s South Georgia 2017 Bainbridge offensive and defensive MVPs.

The awards were given based on recommendations from area coaches, stats and overall student-athlete performance.

Barber is a two-year starter who led the offensive line.

“Hudson never missed a practice in four years of high school football,” Coach Jeff Littleton said. “He never missed a summer workout. Very dedicated and very committed. He sacrificed a lot for BHS football. The ultimate leader.”

Adams is a slightly different story. He never started a game until his senior year, and remained dedicated to the program when other players started over him.

“He stayed dedicated and never got frustrated about playing time,” Littleton said. “He worked hard to get where he is. He stayed committed, and I’m just really proud of his tenacity.”

Adams accounted for 71 solo tackles and racked up 11.5 sacks for the Bearcats.
