Henrietta's Cody Blanscet is Player of the Week

We had another great week of high school football this week, with some great performances to go with it

That means we had some great nominees for our Papa John's Player of the Week Award.

But Henrietta Running Back Cody Blanscet gets the nod after a monster performance against Jacksboro.

He picked up 230 yards, with 3 touchdowns, helping the Bearcats to their first win of the season.
     
He outpaced two other nominees:

Burkburnett Quarterback Canon Cornelius had a great game against Vernon, throwing for over 100 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for almost 200 yards and another score, as the Bulldogs also got their first win of the season.
      
Quarterback Aaron Barton of Seymour went for nearly 300 yards through the air with 4 touchdowns in the Panthers' big win over Haskell. Barton took the award in Zero Week for his performance against Jacksboro.

On Monday Newschannel 6 Sports' Charlie Bartlett went out to Henrietta to present Cody his award.

Here's what he had to say:

On how it feels to receive the award:

"It feels pretty amazing. I mean, it was lots of fun, [but] a lot of hard work."

Overall thoughts about the game:

"I thought I did pretty good myself, but I couldn't have done it without the gentlemen behind me [his teammates]."

On the team's first win of the year:

"It felt amazing. We were going in it 0-0 for us, in our minds, and we just come out and played hard."

On the Bearcats' upcoming game with rival Holliday:

"Well, next week we've got a hard game coming on. We're just going to keep practicing hard, keep playing hard, see where it goes."
