LAKE BUTLER, Fla. -- Geordyn Green leads the area in interceptions, but that's not the best part of the story for this Union County High School junior safety.

Green has battled health issues for most of his life.  He was diagnosed with Chron's Disease at age 4.  It's now in remission after a recent procedure.

He still has atrial fibrillation which is an abnormal heartbeat.  While it appears this is under control, it could still flare up at any time.

Geordyn hasn't let these health problems or his small stature stop him from making big plays for the undefeated Tigers. That's why he's the First Coast News Athlete of the Week.
