The high school football season is over but we have one last football player honored as the "Loaf ‘N Jug Gatorade High School Athlete of the Week." And what a week it has been for our winner, Florence Huskies fullback Tyler Faoro.
Tyler and the "Big Dogs" blanked Bayfield 34-0 on a snowy day in Aurora this past Saturday to win the 2A state title.
Tyler was a one-man wrecking crew. The big senior scored four touchdowns, played defense, kicked extra points and punted in the game.
Still Faoro gave credit to everybody. Faoro said, "It's amazing. It feels great. I owe it all to my teammates. They all did a great job."
Faoro is also an honor student at Florence.
This was the fifth overall state football title for the Huskies who celebrated with a victory assembly Tuesday afternoon at the high school. That's when Tyler found out he had been selected as the "Loaf ‘N Jug Gatorade High School Athlete of the Week."
