Athlete Of The Week: Densel Barnes


When you think of quarterbacks, you think of passing.

But Indian River's quarterback this year, junior Densel Barnes, might make you think different.

Sure, Barnes has thrown for 503 yards and three touchdowns going into Friday night's playoff game against Fulton. But it's his ground game that has people talking.

Barnes knows how to cut, how to accelerate, says his coach. He isn't kidding: this year, on 92 carries, Barnes gained 535 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. He averaged close to six yards a run.

Densel is this week's Watertown Savings Bank - 7 News North Country Athlete of The Week. To see him in action, and to hear from Densel and his coach, click on the picture to watch Mel Busler's report.
