Surprise student athlete picked as player of Week 6

Highland Prep's Calini wins vote

Posted

Surprise students battled it out for West Valley Preps' player of the week honors in Week 6, with 1,205 votes were cast.

Highland  Prep junior wide receiver Aeden Calini won with 501 votes for the Honey Badgers' 52-26 home victory over Tucson Catalina Sept. 29.  Calini had 8 catches for 205 yards and three touchdowns that night.

A few miles away at Willow Canyon, Valley Vista junior wide receiver Jeramichael Hernandez was the star in the Battle of Surprise. He made five catchez for 84 yards and two touchdowns, and added a 60-yard punt return in the 41-14 Monsoon win.

Hernandez placed second with 328 votes.

Another receiver and kick returner, Estrelle Foothills junior Noah Romo, picked up 243 votes for his returns during a 55-18 rout of Phoenix Maryvale. He returned two kickoffs for touchdowns - from 72 and 70 yards out - and added a receiving touchdown.

For the seventh year, player of the week honorees, including Calini, will win more than bragging rights.

Celebrity Tux and Tails, returns as the sponsor of the player of the week poll. The store, at 9240 W. Northern Ave., Suite 103-A in Peoria, will provide each winner a free rental redeemable any time this school year.

Vote in the Week 7 poll.
