Even with last year’s Mr. Football, Donovan Edwards, on the field for the Lakers, Tatum was still a big-play threat, racking up more than 650 yards from scrimmage (500-plus rushing, 150 receiving) and four scores, earning second-team all-state honors in Division 1-2 from the Associated Press. While he’ll get a more expanded role as an offensive weapon as a senior, Tatum will likely play defensive back in college. STATS AFTER PLAYOFFS ROUND 3: Had 15 carries for 94 yards and two touchdowns in a 14-13 loss to Rochester Adams, adding two catches for 12 yards and a kickoff return for 28. On the season, he has 166 carries for 1,174 yards and 23 scores, eight catches for 74 yards and 1011 combined punt/kick returns for 215 yards, along with 52 tackles and three interceptions on defense.
