Last week DeMatha put up its highest score of the season in a 61-27 homecoming win over McNamara. Clearly with such a big win, many players stood out, but Head Coach Eljiah Brooks highlighted three players as his Players of the Week.
Offensive Player of the Week: Lorenzo Harrison RB – 17 carries, 230 yards, 5 TDs
Outstanding performance by Lorenzo. Linemen did a great job of opening holes all day and Lorenzo made some spectacular runs to lead the rushing attack.
Defensive Player of the Week: LB Spencer Kleinrichert – 6 tackles 3 sacks
Spencer had another big game for us, with 3 of the 10 sacks we had Saturday. Great effort from our senior captain.
Special Teams Player of the Week: DB Jarriel Jordan Jr.
Recovered the opening kickoff for us that really set the tone for us for the entire day.
All three players led the way for the Stags to the huge win over McNamara, but Coach Brooks knows he will need an even better effort this week to beat Gonzaga.
DeMatha Football would also like to extend a hearty congratulations to Austin Fontain, an offensive and defensive lineman with the Westlake Bulldogs, for being Tuesday’s raffle winner from the Athletic Open House!! Austin please email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize!
