BRANTLEY HEAD COACH DAVID LOWERY
"Dexter's an extremely intelligent football player, and a guy that loves to hit people.
"He studies the game, watches a lot of film, knows and understands tendencies. And Dexter knows what to do when he gets to the ball.
"Dexter made a bunch of big plays for us, but it's amazing to see how many knockouts he gets. That's where we call a tackle when the running back's feet are in the air (when he hits the ground). I have a highlight tape full of those hits by Dexter."
