Midwest City quarterback Preston Colbert is this week’s Fan’s Favorite award for the Bravado Wireless Player Of The Week. Colbert ran away was a candidate for the award multiple times last season as a junior. This was his first time being a candidate this season and he ran away with the vote. Colbert finished with 75% of the vote, higher than any other Fan’s Favorite winner this season. Nearly 6,000 votes were brought in over the last few days.
When we broke down the Lawton-Midwest City game last week, we said the biggest key was whether or not Midwest City quarterback Preston Colbert would play. After getting hurt in week one, it was unclear whether he would be back for the big district opener. Not only was he back, he was on top of his game. In a 56-45 shootout, Colbert threw for 375 yards on 19-39 passing and finished with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the win.
Earlier this week, Union running back Darius Boone Jr. 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!
