Af­ter lead­ing the Tigers in scor­ing in backto-back con­tests, Al­covy's Jor­dan Heron has been named the Al­covy Ath­lete of the Week.

Fri­day night against Druid Hills, Heron forced a steal in the fi­nal 20 sec­onds of play and con­verted a shot at the buzzer to help the Tigers de­feat the Red Devils in re­gion play.

Heron fin­ished with a game-high 17 points, in­clud­ing six points in the open­ing quar­ter.

Al­covy in­terim coach Eric Hol­lier said that Heron's work ethic has been a pos­i­tive fac­tor for the Tigers.

"Jor­dan is a hard work- er," Hol­lier said. "He puts in the time in the weight room and he comes to prac­tice with in­ten­sity. He works re­ally hard, and he took this week by storm. I'm ex­tremely proud of him."

Al­covy re­turns to ac­tion Tues­day on the road against Mor­row be­fore host­ing ri­val Newton in re­gion play on Satur­day.
