ALEXANDRIA, La (KALB) - Our Athlete of the Week finalists are Will Thomson, Jarvis Newton, and Jyrien Washington.


Holy Savior Menard’s running back Will Thomson rushed for 200 yards and four touchdowns on 46 carries in their win over Red River.

“We have an all-star lineman, Dru Scully, and Javarous Newton who have been up for awards like this, so for me to be a finalist is a dream come true,” Thomson said.

Heading over to Alexandria Senior High, running back Jarvis Newton had another great game only touching the ball six times. Newton finished with 173 yards as Ash picked up their win over Pineville.

“I couldn't have done it without my o-line,” Newton said. “All I think about is getting the job done, and we are working hard as a team to do that,” Newton added.

Finally, Bunkie’s wide receiver, Jyrien Washington racked up a total of 255 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Winnfield.

“I grew up playing football and when I got good at it, I just kept playing,” Washington said.

The Athlete of the Week winner will be announced at 10 p.m.
