The Blue Heron Athlete of the Week is Riley County Falcon Trace Nelson. The Falcon sophomore scored 3 touchdowns in the Falcons first win of the season Friday night over Wabaunsee 48-16. One TD early went 58 yards from the line of scrimmage…he topped that though in the early 3rd quarter when he went 81 yards to house on a kick off return. In addition to 3 TD’s Nelson ran for 89 yards on just 4 carries.
An outstanding performance makes Trace Nelson this week’s Blue Heron Athlete of the Week.
