Chris Wilson does his talking on the football field and in the classroom. The 12-year-old doesn’t say much, but his play speaks loudly. Wilson has seven offensive touchdowns in his last two games with the Turkey Creek Trojans Midgets. He also had 18 tackles in those games and returned an interception for a touchdown. According to Wilson’s coach, Milo Mitchell, Wilson is a well-behaved, respectful player who does well in school and is quick on the field.
