Our KOAA Gatorade and Loaf n Jug Athlete of the Week is Marcell Barbee of Pueblo South. 

The do it all receiver for the Colts finished Saturday’s title game with eight catches for 119 yards and a touchdown in a 25-14 win vs. Pine Creek for the 4A state title. 

Barbee finished the season with 23 touchdown catches – 3rd most in Colorado high school history. 

"We worked our tails off all year," Barbee said after the game. "I couldn’t ask to play with a better group of kids, I just want to thank all of Pueblo. That’s my home town and to be able to bring this home to the Steel City, it’s just a great feeling and I want to let everyone know it’s home." 

The win Saturday was the first on the gridiron for Pueblo South in school history.
