Lakeside senior Carter Brown and Beloit senior Kyler Vahle have been named the Telephone and Cable Athletes of the Week.

Brown had a career game on the gridiron against Pike Valley on Friday night.  In Lakeside's 84-34 win in Scandia, Brown ran for 149 yards on 21 carries (7.1 ypc) with five rushing touchdowns as well.  He also had a 63-yard kickoff return for a TD and led the team with 17 total tackles and three tackles for loss.  On the season, Brown has now rushed for 412 yards and nine scores and had 42 tackles with seven for loss and three sacks.

Vahle kickstarted the Beloit Trojans in their 28-13 win at Scott City in 3A District play on Friday night.  Vahle put the Trojans on the board first in the first quarter, stripping the ball on defense and taking it 28 yards for a TD to give Beloit a 7-0 lead.  He also had a big sack on defense early in the game and recovered a Beloit fumble in the end zone on a two-point attempt to score the team's final points.  On offense, late in the 4th quarter, he made a great catch on a Hudson Gray tipped pass on 4th & 8 that set the Trojans up at the Scott City 9-yard line and led to their final touchdown.

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