LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”

 

(SUNBURST) – KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE OF THE WEEK HONORS THIS WEEK LAND ON AN EXCEPTIONAL 3-SPORT ATHLETE WHO, JUST BECAUSE OF THE WAY THINGS FALL, IS EARNING HIS 1ST ATHLETE OF THE WEEK AWARD.

SUNBURST SR. TREYTON PICKERING WHO HAS CAUGHT THE EYE OF COLLEGE RECRUITS IN BOTH FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL THE PAST THREE YEARS, HAD A GAME LAST WEEKEND THAT WAS UNDENIABLY A TOP NOTCH PERFORMANCE.

IN THE REFINERS CRITICAL WIN OVER POWER-DUTTON-BRADY,  PICKERING HAULED IN 5 CATCHES FOR 86 YARDS AND 2 TOUCHDOWNS.  HEAD COACH DEAN LERUM DESCRIBED ONE OF THE CATCHES IN THE CORNER OF THE END ZONE AS MAYBE THE BEST CATCH WE’D SEE ALL YEAR AND IT WAS A PERFECTLY THROWN BALL OVER THE SHOULDER FROM LANE LERUM THAT PICKERING WAS ABLE TO BRING DOWN AND STILL KEEP THE REQUIRED ONE FOOT IN BOUNDS.

THE REFINERS ALSO USED THE TALENTED ATHLETE IN NUMEROUS POSITIONS.   HE THREW 2 PASSES FOR 45 YARDS AND 1TD…….. HE RAN THE BALL 4 TIMES FOR 67 YARDS AND 1 TD.    BUT WAIT………THAT’S STILL NOT ALL………TREYTON HAD 10 TACKLES ON DEFENSE, INCLUDING 2 SACKS, AN INTERCEPTION THAT HE TIPPED UP AND CAUGHT AND ONE DEFLECTION.

IT WAS A BIG NIGHT FOR PICKERING AND A BIG NIGHT FOR THE REFINERS WHO KEPT THEIR PLAYOFF HOPES ALIVE.

ALSO NOMINATED THIS WEEK, AND VERY DESERVING, SO. QB RILEY SPOONHUNTER OF HEART BUTTE WHO RAN FOR 5 TOUCHDOWNS AND THREW FOR ANOTHER AS HEART BUTTE DEFEATED AUGUSTA.
