Osborne Junior Jordan Wherry has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.

Wherry has had an outstanding start to the 2017-18 season for the 6-0 Osborne Bulldog boys basketball team.  Stepping into a much bigger role on this year's squad, Wherry is the second leading scorer for Osborne, putting up 12.7 ppg.  Within the last week, he averaged 16 ppg in two NPL league wins for the Bulldogs.  On Friday night, in Osborne's 54-36 win at Tescott, he put up 14 points, going 6-6 from the floor.  In his team's 77-32 win over Thunder Ridge on Tuesday night, Wherry registered a career-high 18 points, shooting 9-12 from the floor.  In the season-opener, he also had a 17-point performance in the Bulldogs' 49-41 win over Southern Cloud.  Wherry is also averaging over five rebounds per game this year and shoots 66% from the floor.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
