GLEN ROSE - Senior wide receiver Austin Mullins is the Glen Rose football Athlete of the Week.

His performance last Friday helped take the sting off a 41-14 non-district loss to Carrollton Ranchview.

Mullins led coach Cliff Watkins' Tigers in receiving yardage, with 122, in that contest, on five receptions.

“He is coming on for us at outside receiver,” Watkins said of Mullins. “He's a smart kid and he knows where the windows are in the defense.”

Watkins described Mullins as a sure-handed possession receiver.

“He did a good job making some plays in that game,” Wakins noted. “He's a guy we've seen get better, week in and week out, and continues to get better offensively.”

Mullins is the second consecutive Tiger receiver who has earned the weekly honor, which is based on statistics and other input from the coach.

Last week, 5-7 junior inside receiver Tyler Torres was the selection. Torres is in his second year as a starter.
