The all-state defender currently has 8 solo tackles, one tackle for a loss, 2 assists and 3 sacks. His presence will be important tonight if Heritage is to make a defensive stand against Appomattox.

The JF standout turned in a 5-under-par 31 to earn medalist honors in a Seminole District match at Ivy Hill Golf Club on Sept. 4. That 9-hole round consisted of four birdies, one bogey and an eagle. Manley also manages to remain a force on the junior circuit. He finished one shot off the lead at the Junior National Championships in South Carolina earlier this month. He has four high school victories this season.

GRETNA (2-0)
