Joey Giorgi of Grafton has been selected as the Level 1 Player of the Week following a statewide vote on WisSports.net. His big day helped the Black Hawks secure a road victory and advance to Level 2. He was chosen from a strong group of nominees in Level 1. A total of 6,006 votes were cast, as Giorgi's 2,478 were enough to edge second place Evan Lau of Hilbert, who tallied 2,061 votes.
The state's leading rusher continued his huge senior season with a workman-like performance as Joey Giorgi helped Grafton past fourth-seeded Ashwaubenon on the road. Carrying the ball 41 times, he racked up 247 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, but wasn't done there. The senior halfback caught four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in the 49-24 victory. The Blackhawks will travel to top-seeded West De Pere this week.
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 Level 2 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
