Maria Michaels, BSM girls soccer, senior forward
BSM had a big week, with convincing 10-0 and 6-0 wins over Fridley and Cooper, respectively. And Michaels scored exactly half of the Red Knights' goals, as she notched five against Fridley and three more against Cooper.
Bryant Griffin Jr., SLP football, junior LB/RB
Though the Orioles were blown out by Spring Lake Park last Friday, Griffin Jr. still brought a spark to the game. First, he recovered a Panther fumble in the endzone for the Orioles' first touchdown of the game. A little while later, the 225-pound running back broke a long run down the sideline, setting up St. Louis Park's second touchdown.
