Player of the Week: Savone "Tank" Tutt

BAYBORO, N.C. (WITN) - Pamlico County football, basketball and track standout Savone "Tank" Tutt is our newest WITN Pepsi Player of the Week!

The Hurricanes are off to a 6-0 start thanks in large part to the efforts of their talented sophomore running back.

"He definitely wants to be a great football player, and that's one of the things that I think is super great about coaching him," Pamlico County head football coach Torrey Nowell said.

In 20 varsity football games, Tutt has compiled 2,012 rushing yards and 32 touchdowns.

"I can't do this without my offensive line and my quarterback," Tutt said.
