Top performances of Week 5: East Coweta’s Tillman accounts for 6 touchdowns

East Coweta’s Brady Tillman has the speed, strength, size and hands to be an elite receiver, but the best thing he does is score touchdowns. Against Lowndes last week, Tillman scored five touchdowns and threw for one in a 49-34 victory.

“He is a very versatile player that can play a lot of offensive positions,” East Coweta coach John Small said. “Just get the ball to him and let him do the rest.”
