Wide receiver Krenwick Sanders of Wayne County is our 10th player among the WTOC Super 11 All-Stars.
Sanders has been impossible to cover since he was a freshman. He joins his teammate, quarterback Malique Jackson among the best in the area.
Sanders has been an explosive player ready to stretch the field since he was a freshman. The 6-2, 195-pound Sanders now teams with quarterback Malique Jackson, another of our WTOC Super 11 All-Stars to form a potent tandem, "The past couple of years, we have develolped a good little chemistry, so it's pretty much like clockwork, whatever we do."
Jackson can adlib when a play breaks down and that keeps Sanders on his toes, "It keeps you on your toes because you never know when he's going to throw the ball, or take off, so you have got to be able to block as well as well as make the catch when he does throw it."
Coach Jody Grooms of the Yellow Jackets said, "Sounds crazy, but he's probably our best perimeter blocker. Ever since he's been in the 9th grade he's taken pride in blocking on the perimeter, very unselfish. Some games, he would finish with 2 balls and some games he would catch 12 and you won't know the difference. He's a team player and he also doubles and plays special teams and plays some in the secondary for us. The last two years when we lost in the final game of the season, this year it was the second round of the playoffs, he wasn't out on the field due to an injury. When he's out there, we're pretty good because it allows us to stretch the field in a lot of different ways."
When I asked him for his favorite route to run he said it was the fade because, "It's a foot race and you get to see who's the fastest is out of you and the cornerback."
Sanders had committed to Georgia but earlier this summer he decommitted from the Bulldogs and says that Florida State, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida and Wisconsin were at the top of his list. He carries a 3.3 grade point average and says he plans to major in civil engineering. "What got me was being able to design stuff like bridges and and all that, I could see myself doing something like that," said Sanders.
Wayne County will host Brunswick Friday night in a 7:30 game in Jesup.
