Congratulations to Deuntae Burgess of Mulberry High School for being voted the scoutSMART Florida Player of the Week for November 14-20th!
The senior running back has been an impact player this year and has really stepped up to help the Panther’s get to their 6-4 record. Burgess has over 400 yards, 7 touchdowns and 12 tackles this season. His drive, work-ethic and discipline showed up as he bounced back from an ankle injury earlier in the season.
