Whitefish Bay junior Nigel Cheeks has been selected as the SportsEngine.com Athlete of the Week after a vote on WSN.
There were 3,861 total votes this week. Nigel topped all vote getters with 1,630 votes. Delavan-Darien's Jonathan Diaz came in second with 1,331 votes.
Nigel was a Swiss army knife on the gridiron in the first football game of the season for Whitefish Bay. He did a little bit of everything and scored in three separate fashions in a 34-6 win over West Bend East. On the ground, he rushed 14 times for 115 yards and two scores. He added a 26 yard touchdown reception and capped off the night with a 64 yard punt return.
Nigel and the Blue Dukes will look to start the season 2-0 as they head to Cedarburg Friday for week 2.
