The inaugural GeauxPreps Football Players of the Week presented by Chevyland.com have been presented to two outstanding performers who lit up the scoreboard as well as opposed their will on defense all night long.
Lutcher quarterback D’Wanye Winfield and Wossman defensive back Sam Farmer IV earned the opening football weekly awards of the season.
Offense: D’Wanye Winfield, Lutcher
In the first game of his senior season, Winfield was a threat through the air as well as on the ground where he rushed 24 times for 237 yards and five touchdowns. He also added two passing touchdowns along with 190 yards passing on 13 completions.
His longest play of the night occurred in the fourth quarter when he broke away for a 61-yard rushing touchdown to add to the Bulldogs’ impressive lead.
Defense: Sam Farmer IV, Wossman
Farmer filled the stat sheet with nine tackles, six for loss, a sack, two quarterback hurries, a pass breakup, and a fumble recovery. The defensive back’s performance was key in helping Wossman shut out Booker T. Washington of Shreveport, 38-0, and giving rookie head coach Terence Cahee his first career win.
