AMARILLO — Childress Bobcat Dareon Mathis, a sophomore running back, was recently selected in Press Pass Sports’ top 10 performers for Week 6 across the Texas Panhandle and nominated for Scorebook Live’s (SBLive) Texas High School Athlete of the Week — an ongoing contest — for his performance in the Bobcat’s 64-8 win over the Amarillo Highland Park Hornets on Friday, Oct. 1.
Finding the endzone five separate times during the victory, Mathis racked up 214 yards on only 12 carries, averaging 17.8 yards per carry.
“If Mathis wasn’t leapfrogging defenders, he was scoring touchdowns against the Hornets,” Press Pass Sports’ Kale Steed said.
