Player of the Week:
Julian Fraga – Strawn – 8-268 yards, 3 TDs rushing, 1 KO return for TD
Easily Tanner Hodgkins or Carlos Villanueva could get the POW nod here, as they had huge nights as well for the Greyhounds, in their 102-71 win over Milford. Fraga, in particular, had a big second half in which Strawn scored 50 unanswered points to go ahead and for good in their 102-71 victory over Milford. Fraga averaged a crazy 33.5 yards per carry.
