Deep Creek has done it again!
Last week, Deep Creek kicker Caden Dellinger won the player of the week award for kicking the game winner over King’s Fork.
This week, Hornet linebacker Gabe Fuster is honored after he has been thrust into a new role as running back. He responded last Friday night with 11 carries for 119 yards and a touchdown in his team’s 28-0 win over Hickory.
It was a close vote. Gabe won by 8 votes as Indian River quarterback Dominique Brooks came in a close second with his six touchdown performance against Western Branch.
We will visit Deep Creek later this week to present the Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the Week award.
There’s an incentive for the player of the week winners to keep up with their academics, because recruit757, in conjunction with the non-profit P.R.E.P.S. Foundation, will award the Player of the Year award at the end of the post-season to the one player of the week winner that exemplifies the best of the region in football and academics.
We’re constantly on the lookout for top performances each week. The top six are nominated for the Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the Week award.
Thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings for their years of support of high school athletics in the 757. The Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the Week award has become a staple of our regular season and postseason recognition of top players.
