(Undated) – Our male KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy Athlete of the Week came up with a big performance in a big game and we have our first female Athlete of the Week who did the same thing.

Male Athlete of the Week honors go to Fairfield Sr. Miguel Perez, a two-time winner of this award a year ago.  We call it a big game, not because of conference status but just for the fact that it was against another Top 10 team in the Class B ranks.

The Eagles squeezed by the Eureka Lions 26-19 and three of their 4 touchdowns came from Perez .  He broke loose for two scores from 41 & 47 yards, and then a third from 9 yards out.  The Sr. running back with breakaway speed and short yardage toughness piled 156 yards total.  Add in his receiving yards and it was 196 total.

Defensively, at the middle linebacker, Perez had numerous tackles and 1 interception.

Our female Athlete of the Week,  Sr. Samantha Roos of Power, is a captain for the Pirates and her play in a comeback conference win last week showed the leadership needed for the victory.

Power got off to a slow start and were down 2-0 but came back to win 3 straight over G.F. Central.  Roos tallied 7 blocks, 2 kills, 2 digs and 2 aces.   Head Coach Darci May told us the blocks by Roos were “instrumental in the victory and kept the team from getting down on themselves.”  She says Roos has worked hard in the off-season and continues to do so during the season, encouraging teammates to do the same.

Congratulations to our KSEN/K96—Bozeman Trophy Athlete’s of the Week, Sr. Miguel Perez of Fairfield and Sr. Samantha Roos of Power.  The Athlete of the week is sponsored locally by McDonald’s in Cut Bank.  McDonald’s honor our Athlete’s with two free value meals each.
