Vernon's Danny Valverde Wins Player of the Week

Vernon Lions running back Danny Valverde took home Texas Ford Player of the Week honors for Week Three!

He took the win with almost 60% of the vote over Electra's Tyler Nelson, Petrolia's Will Morath and Graham's Dillon Gonzales.

Valverde rushed 18 times for 119 yards and the only two Vernon touchdowns in the Lions' thrilling, 17-14 win over Holliday in last week's Dr Pepper Game of the Week.

His leaping, spinning touchdown in the second half also took home HD Play of the Week honors, and will be featured this coming Friday night in our Inside the Play segment, where "coach" Eric Crosslin will break down the play in his own, unique way.
