Football Players of the Week — Week 5
LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY
It’s not very often a player wins the award more than once in one regular season, but what the junior has been doing is just undeniable. In Friday night’s 51-0 win over Montgomery he threw for 373 yards on 22-of-34 passing and two scores. He also rushed for 4 more touchdowns. It was the fifth straight week he’s posted at least five TD’s and has done most of his damage playing only in the first half of games.
Playing with an over-sized cast on his arm, he led the Knights in receiving with 5 receptions for 85 yards. He made 12 tackles (4 TFL) and a deflected a pass. The junior also might have made the play of the game with an interception that he returned 32 yards to the 4-yard line. The Knights took their first lead of the game one play later and hung on to survive 19-17 at Hilltop.
