GRIDIRON CLUB "FAN IN THE STANDS" PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Offensive Player of the Week: THE ENTIRE BLUE DUKES OFFENSE. We could pick Bailey for his 41 yard field goal or Jack for his consistent punting. Any of our running backs; Van, Adam or Macklin, would deserve the recognition for rushing for more than 200 yards against the Highlander defense; but not without the execution of their offensive line. Mitch, Steve, Ben, Matthew, Teddy and JMO deserve the credit as well. Jake scored our only TD. So why not recognize the entire offense for putting together a great game against a top tier opponent.
Defensive Player of the Week: THE ENTIRE BLUE DUKES DEFENSE. Homestead's offense was averaging 33 points per game and our defense held them to less than half of that average. The Highlander power running game averages more than 200 yards per game, and our guys held them to just 133. The Blue Dukes "D" didn't give up anything easy and gave our team a real chance to win. The entire defense deserves this recognition. Let's make sure to take care of things in Oshkosh so we can have another shot at Homestead.
