In a game which featured a trio of players who each put up numbers worthy of recognition, Luke Dawahare still stood above the rest.
Pacelli's sophomore wide receiver/defensive back hauled in five passes for 69 yards, three for touchdowns, and grabbed an interception on defense to help the Vikings (2-0) to a 43-14 win over Stewart County.
For his efforts, he has been selected as the Ledger-Enquirer's High School Football Player of the Week.
The team's two wins are already an improvement over last season's win total (one), and Dawahare is looking for his team to continue its improvement. He spoke with the Ledger-Enquirer on Monday to talk about his success.
Talk about your performance the other night. How did you feel out there?
I felt great. Obviously, playing at home is always fun, and I had a great game in front of friends and family. It's a great feeling.
How about the progress you guys have made from last season to this season. How have you guys been able to improve, and what does the future look like?
We knew that we had a lot of guys returning. We had a young team last year. We worked hard in the offseason, and the coaches have put us in the right spots. Everybody willing to do their part to help get any wins that we can. Everybody's glad that things are different and going in a positive direction.
