Jonah Jensen of Brookfield Academy has been selected as the Level 1 Player of the Week following a statewide vote on WisSports.net. His big day helped the Blue Knights get past second-seeded Cedar Grove-Belgium. He was chosen from a strong group of nominees in Level 1. A total of 6,130 votes were cast, as Jensen's 2,142 were enough to edge second place Tanner Marsh of Mondovi, who tallied 1,604 votes.

Brookfield Academy's Jonah Jensen tied a state record with eight touchdown passes as the Knights won a 53-48 shootout with Cedar Grove-Belgium. Jensen completed 21-of-28 passes for 262 yards in the big win, adding 138 yards on 22 carries as well. He is the fifth player in state history with eight touchdown passes in one game and the first to do it since Eau Claire Memorial's Bryson Johnson in 2018.

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.
