Player of the Week: AJ Dupree

SNOW HILL, N.C. (WITN) - Greene Central senior running back and safety AJ Dupree is our newest WITN Pepsi Player of the Week!

Last year, Greene Central football earned its first postseason win since 2005. Now, behind Dupree, the Rams are hungry for more in 2018.

"I told people before the season started," said Greene Central head football coach Allen Wooten. "He's the best offensive and defensive player in this conference. And I'll put my foot down and say it again. He's a special player."

Dupree currently leads the Eastern Carolina 2A Conference in rushing (136.6 ypg) and touchdowns (12).

"I know that I've been told I'm special a couple times throughout the year, and I just try to come out and show it every night," Dupree said.

Greene Central will not be hosting Kinston this upcoming Friday like originally scheduled. Instead, the Rams will travel to Farmville Central next Tuesday, October 2 for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
