D’Iberville’s Tyler Barnes is considered one of the Coast’s top defensive backs.
Barnes is the Sun Herald’s Defensive Player of the Week for his standout performance in a 20-17 win over Gulfport on Friday night.
The Admirals lined up for a game-tying 23-yard field goal attempt with six seconds left. Barnes raced inside and caused the Gulfport holder to mishandle the snap. The result was a D’Iberville fumble recovery as time expired.
Barnes, committed to signing with Southern Miss, had 10 tackles and four pass breakups. Against Hancock last week, Barnes had two interceptions.
