Canutillo High School's Shane King has rushed for 1,141 yards and 12 touchdowns this year, behind a solid offensive line. King averages 163 yards per game, and last week against Horizon, King scored three touchdowns in the 23-20 victory. Today, King was named our Academy Sports Player of the Week.
"He's been consistent all year. I don't think anybody has really held him down. Our OL has done a good job for him, and what helps is he has a backup to give him a break when he needs it, so he's fresh most of the time," said Head Coach Scott Brooks. King added, "Well, there is a lot of good blocking like you said. The lineman to the receivers, everyone."
7:00pm Friday night, Canutillo will play at Del Valle.
