Texoma Team of the Week: Nocona - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Team of the Week: Nocona

The Nocona Indians emerged victorious as the first Team of the Week. This should come as no surprise, as Nocona's superstar running back Tate Fenoglio was also named Player of the Week.

This team is made of more than individual superstars. Week in and week out, each player has a job to do. Nocona Head Coach Brad Keck said, "Tate gets a lot of publicity, Hayden gets a lot of publicity but I tell you what, our other skill kids really work hard. Tate wins player of the week and Tate would be the first one to say its not his award, it's a team award. He knows he couldn't get it without all of them."

Junior outside linebacker and running back John Jennings said he'll do whatever it takes. He said, "I mean you're their teammate. It's not just them trying to win its the whole team, so I'm going to do what I can to make a touchdown, make a tackle, whatever."

Even if they're not handling the ball, each player has an important assignment each and every down. Senior fullback and safety Bryce Dingler said, "We talk about it before the play, know who you got to get to, where you got to go so the plays successful."

The Indians will also be aided this season by their depth as players step up to play multiple positions. Dingler said, "I think it's better to have depth than just one player. Sometimes that one player might be unstoppable but a whole team striving for one goal is going to come out with a victory."

Nocona faced off against Muenster in the second game of their season. The Indians will next head to Archer City.
