(VIDEO) Player of the Week: Fisher leads Wildcats thrilling late push

Rabun County quarterback Bailey Fisher has faced plenty of big games in his time leading the Wildcats' explosive spread offense -- and put up plenty of big performances in those games.

That said, Fisher's play on Friday night was a bit special.

The senior signal caller passed his way to 360 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for 41 yards and three scores, as the Wildcats fought off a fast-rising White County program, 49-26 in Cleveland.

Fisher keyed a 21-point fourth quarter barrage to lead Rabun away from a tight, 28-26 scoreline.

For his efforts, Fisher has been named the Friday Game Night, Coca-Cola United Bottling Player of the Week.

Thanks to the havoc wrought by Tropical Storm Irma, Friday Game Night editor Morgan Lee was forced to catch up with Fisher via phone -- but the senior quarterback was still eager to talk about last week's key contest, Rabun's season so far, and just how much he enjoys big showdowns like the one faced Friday.
