Matt Getgen of Wisconsin Dells has been selected as the Week 2 Football Player of the Week following a statewide vote on WisSports.net. His big day helped the Chiefs rally to beat Black River Falls in a non-conference game. He was chosen from a strong group of nominees in Week 2. A total of 4,755 votes were cast, as Getgen's 1,634 were enough to edge out second place Mason Keyes of DeForest, who tallied 909 votes.
Wisconsin Dells is 2-0 to begin the season, as the Chiefs are coming off a 40-34 victory over Black River Falls in Week 2. Wisconsin Dells trailed 20-6 at one point in the first quarter and was still behind 27-22 at halftime before rallying for the win. Senior Matt Getgen was huge on both sides of the ball, rushing 24 times for 288 yards and four touchdowns. Two of those scores came in the second half as the Chiefs fought back to take the lead. Getgen also recorded a team-high 10 tackles on defense, adding an interception as well.
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 3 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
