He’s been one of the most consistent offensive weapons in the Big Country throughout the 2020 season.
So it probably comes as no surprise that Jim Ned running back Xavier Wishert has taken our Capital Farm Credit-Big Country Preps Player of the Week award for the Week ending Dec. 5. But he did it in extraordinary fashion — chalking up five touchdowns in a 45-28 win over Pilot Point in Friday’s Region I-3A DI championship game in Stephenville.
Rushing 32 times, Wishert piled up 271 yards and four scores from the Jim Ned backfield. This, combined with an 83-yard kickoff return and eight tackles from his linebacker spot and the junior was the hands-down choice for the award.
