Banks County football is 7-1 and back in the state playoffs for the first time since 2008 and for the fourth time in school history.

Not bad for a brand new coaching staff.

Of course, the Leopards players have had plenty to do with that as well, including senior running back Dean Ewing. Ewing rushed 29 times for 209 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 42-21 win over Fannin County. The victory sealed a state playoff spot and a berth in the Region 8-AA championship game on Nov. 4 against either Elbert County or North Oconee (the two will play each other for that right this Friday).

For his efforts, Ewing was named the Gainesville Jaycees Player of the Week. sports editor Morgan Lee traveled to Homer on Tuesday to deliver Ewing's award and talk with the Leopards standout about the 2011 campaign.
