Rock Hills Senior Rylee Whelchel has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.

Whelchel had a big night in the Grizzlies' football season opener on Friday night at Blue Valley-Randolph.  In the 78-28 win, Whelchel ran the ball for 295 yards on just 9 carries, an average of 32.8 ypc and also added 4 TD.  He also had a 70 yard kickoff return for a score and a 55-yard punt return for a touchdown.  In all Whelchel scored six touchdowns and had 420 all-purpose yards as all of those numbers came in just one half due to the 45-point mercy rule.
