The Panthers came up short in the first round playoff matchup against the Eunice Bobcats, but senior running back Trevon Snearl had himself a game.
The tailback rushed for 215 yards on only 11 attempts with two touchdowns in the game. Snearl could’ve ended the game with even gaudier numbers if he hadn’t been forced out of the game with cramps.
Snearl’s performance earned him Westside Journal Player of the Week honors.
“ It was a pretty good game,” Snearl said. “We could’ve beat them. We could’ve had them, but I had little cramps in my calf, not used to the weather, but my team, they really blocked for me. We were focused on the end zone. That’s all we were focused on...We should’ve made a run in the playoffs. It shouldn’t have been done that soon.”
His touchdown runs came from 62 and 21 yards with both scores coming in the first half.
In his first season and only season playing high school football, Snearl rushed for 750 yards and 11 scores on 74 attempts, which was good for a little over 10 yards per attempt.
“I got better over time,” he said. “My position coach made me a leader so that’s really what made go harder in practice and in games, to take everything seriously to prepare for the next level. I want to thank my coaches for coaching me up and allowing me to play football for Brusly high school and I want to thank my team for keeping me focused and day-by-day getting me better.”
