Vincent’s Tae McGregor Turns in Special Performance to Lead Jackets to First Win

AHSAA Special Teams Spotlight for Week 6

MONTGOMERY – Vincent High School junior Tae McGregor turned in a special performance on special teams, defense and offense as the Yellow Jackets downed Coosa Central 51-8 for their first win of the season last week. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound all-purpose back had a 65-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, a 40-yard interception return for a TD and had rushing scores of 9 and 57 yards to earn the AHSAA Special Teams Spotlight for week 6 of the prep football season.
    Following McGregor’s interception return, freshman teammate Zac Carlisle stepped in front of Coosa pass at his own 10-yard on the very next offensive play and raced 90 yards for another interception return for a touchdown. Vincent, coached by Lucas Weatherford, led 51-0 at the half.
