The Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the Week is Bubba Thomas of Portsmouth Christian
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
This week’s award winner, Bubba Thomas, arrived at Portsmouth Christian earlier this year after playing last season at Lake Taylor. He cut his teeth playing high school ball with the Titans, and now he has arrived as a top power back as a member of the Patriots.
Last week, running back Bubba Thomas of Portsmouth Christian rushed for 216 on eight carries with three touchdowns in a 48-0 win over Mathews. That’s a private school winning against a public school.
Thomas carried 25% of the vote in a week where the poll drew over 1700 individual votes.
We will visit Portsmouth Christian School 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, along with P.R.E.P.S., 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.
