Locust Grove quarterback Caden Bendabout ran away with this week’s Fan’s Favorite award for the Bravado Wireless Player Of The Week. Bendabout was nearly perfect as he led the stunning upset of 2A’s #3 Adair in the blowout win on Thursday night and the fans voted accordingly. Bendabout earned 70% of the vote, running away with the Fan’s Favorite vote this week. Nearly 30,000 votes were brought in over the last few days. The 70% total is the highest margin for the Fan’s Favorite winner so far this season.
Locust Grove made one of the loudest statements of week two when they blasted Adair 59-16 on Thursday night. The Pirates looked like what we saw from Locust Grove when Mason Fine was setting all sorts of records. Current quarterback Caden Bendabout might not break those records but he had a Fine night himself. Pun intended. He completed 10 of 11 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns as the Pirates rolled to the win.
Earlier this week, Sulphur running back Trey Kiser was tabbed as the staff pick for this week’s Bravado Wireless Player Of The Week.
Check back every Sunday when five players will be named candidates for the award and voting will begin again!
