Having covered Big Country athletics since 2006, I can, with a good degree of accuracy, say that it is rare for a Cisco football player to win a Player of the Week accolade.
There are two reasons for this: Cisco has not only been very good under coach Brent West, but they’ve been merciful in the process — often pulling their starters early to avoid embarrassing the opposition.
This makes it difficult for a CHS player to crack our Top 10, much less take the top spot.
Nonetheless, it does happen, upon occasion and Friday night is an example of it.
Senior quarterback Cooper Witt, despite being pulled after one series in the third quarter, snags our Big Country Preps Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 20 after leading the Loboes to a 68-0 win over San Angelo Grape Creek.
