WINONA - Last week, this player put on quite the performance. Not only is his team 2-1 in district play, he continues to be a threat on both ends of the ball, and he's this week's American State Bank player of the week.

I felt great, I'm really just, when I'm in the game, I'm just focused on the game, I'm not really looking for the stats, whatever I get, I get, I'm just looking for helping my team get to that win.

We didn't win, but we played as hard as we could, got through it, yeah, I was just focused, I was ready to play, I didn't know I was going to have to play quarterback that week, I just got my head focused for it. I just felt comfortable with my number 1 receiver, he was on his A-game that game, Dakota, he was just on it.

The bond is great, we produce good on the field, we're coachable, we can make plays, I feel like we're all working for each other, we're all there for each other at the end of the day, I mean, I don't see no 'I' in team at all, it's all together and it's just a team effort, we don't look for ourselves, we're not there for that, we're always going to be together, even after football.

If you're a key player on your team, they know you can play on both sides of the ball, that's good for the team, helps the team out more, gives you more depth right there.

It's way different from the other kids, he gonna get on you way harder, harder, harder, but at the end of the day, he helps me and I just learn off of what he tells me, whatever he tells me to do, I'm going to learn off of it and I'm going to go out there and play my hardest.

That ring, it motivates me, just seeing people with it, I want that, I gotta go get it, as a team, we gotta go get it.

Wherever we go, the community is with us. We made it to the playoffs, they're right there behind us, no matter how far the game was, they were right behind us.
