Peter MacCudden of Waukesha West has been selected as the Week 8 Player of the Week following a statewide vote on WisSports.net. His big day helped the Wolverines top Muskego and secure at least a share of the Classic Eight title. He was chosen from a strong group of nominees in Week 8. A total of 4,682 votes were cast, as MacCudden's 1,893 were enough to edge second place Joe Garcia of Racine Horlick, who tallied 1,583 votes.
The Wolverines clinched at least a share of the Classic Eight title and MacCudden continued his strong season as the team beat Muskego 31-6. A strong contender for WFCA Offensive Player of the Year, MacCudden carried the ball 30 times for 248 yards and three touchdowns. He also threw a 27-yard score to Tyler Leitner in the first quarter on a halfback option pass. He also had seven tackles on defense.
Remember folks, the only way your favorite player can be named WisSports.net Player of the Week is to vote and share the word. Look for the Week 9 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
