Under Armour Athlete of the Week: Week 11 Winner

ALPHARETTA, GA -- This week's winner of 11Alive and Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Under Armour Athlete of the Week is only a sophomore, but his performance in Week 10 was good enough to beat out two seniors in the online vote.

Alpharetta wide receiver Carlos Burse caught three touchdown passes en route to his team's 48-28 road win over Centennial. Burse, who is also a talented basketball player, will try to help the Raiders win their first playoff game in school history this Friday.

To get that playoff win, Burse and company will have to face off against another Athlete of the Week nominee: Brookwood linebacker Cameron Lynch.

Lynch was nominated for the award in Week 10 when he and the rest of Brookwood's defense shutout Grayson for a 10-0 victory. It was the first time the Rams had been shutout since early 2006.

Lynch is committed to Syracuse.

The third nominee for Under Armour Athlete of the Week was Whitewater running back Josh Clemons. Clemons, who holds offers from UCF, Maryland, Troy, and more, scored three rushing touchdowns in his team's 28-7 win over Northgate.

Whitewater finished the regular season 8-2 and plays Northside-Warner Robins in the first round of the playoffs.
