Football’s Gavin Tatum Named Athlete of the week.

Written by Sara Tilton – Buccaneer Scroll Staff Reporter

Our Athlete of the week this week is Gavin Tatum. Gavin is a senior here at Allatoona and has been playing football since he was five. Football Head Coach Gary Varner says, “He’s a hard worker on and off the field with great character that you would love to build a program around.” Gavin says, “This is my third year starting varsity football at tackle, and I’ve always done my best to improve so I can get my job done on the field.” His favorite memory while playing football at Allatoona “is scoring our first touchdown sophomore year at Creekview.” Gavin plans on continuing to play football at the next level. His advice to younger players is to “always keep a good attitude and keep working when it gets tough. Developing the skill to play varsity and be a winning football team doesn’t happen overnight, so just stay focused and push yourself.”
