Eastside Athlete of the Week: Guard Treyvon Francis
For his efforts on the basketball court, Eagles senior Treyvon Francis has been named the Eastside Athlete of the Week.
With his deadly shot and court vision, Francis helped the Eagles notch their 12th consecutive win over the weekend against North Oconee, while keeping Eastside atop Region 8- AAAA with a game- high 24 points against visiting Johnson.
Against Johnson, Francis helped the Eagles grab an early 27- 12 lead, scoring five consecutive points, before draining a pair of free throws at the end of the contest to seal a 62- 57 victory.
One day later, the se- nior guard hit critical free throws once again to seal the victory, helping the Eagles go on a 5- 0 run in the fourth to clinch a 62- 43 win.
Francis and the Eagles return to action on the road Friday night in region play against Lanier. Game time is 8: 30 p. m.
Eastside closes out its home schedule with two contests against Alcovy and Madison County.
