Fort Dale Academy senior Trent Brooks kicked his way to Player of the Week honors.

Brooks was named AL.com’s Montgomery Football Player of the Week after he booted a 37-yard field goal on the final play of regulation to send the Eagles’ game with Autauga Academy into overtime.

Brooks then split the uprights on an extra-point attempt in overtime to lift the Eagles to a 55-54 win over the General on Sept. 20.
