Coutras

Few defensive players have had a season in the county like Tim Coutras. 

The Liberty football commit has been a key cog in the Knights machine, sitting at 9-2 after a playoff win against Macon Co. Friday night. 

Per the Home Page's Chip Cirillo, Coutras "scored on a 50-yard run, a 25-yard pass from Ryder Galardi, a 62-yard interception return and a 1-yard run after hauling in a 42-yard pass on the previous play."

“Tim’s a phenomenal football player,” Knights coach Paul Derrick told Cirillo. “I think he’s one of the best two-way players in the state. He can do it all: he can run it, he can catch it, he plays safety on defense. He’s just a really solid football player and I think he showcased that ability tonight.”

Coutras is a Mr. Football semifinalist for 4A, and Friday night was further proof of the amazing season he's had. 

The Knights have a fight ahead with Friday's road battle with an 11-0 Livingston Academy, and it'll take more football like this from Coutras and the rest of the Knights to pull off the upset. 

But they've got it in them, and Coutras is part of why. That's why he's our City Cafe Player of the Week.
