Every few years, someone will deliver a performance that goes beyond exceptional, great, unbelievable or whatever adjective you choose to attach to it.
Bangs’ senior running back Ethan Sanchez is the latest entry into this rare category, taking our Capital Farm Credit/Big Country Preps Player of the Week after leading the Dragons to a 76-23 win over Brady to help lock up a No. 2 playoff seed.
The numbers speak for themselves: 14 carries, 440 yards, seven TDs. I’ll say it again: 14 carries, 440 yards, seven TDs. This included scoring runs of 61, 41, 55, 61, 60, 50 and 55 yards. His average per carry: 31.4 yards. And no, this isn’t at the six-man level, where such numbers aren’t unheard of. This was two classifications up in Class 3A DII.
Bangs improved to 8-1 and 4-2 while wrapping up a No. 2 seed in District 2.
