Ryan Zuern of Hartford has been selected as the Level 1 Player of the Week following a statewide vote on WisSports.net. Zuern came up huge in a wild 45-42 win over Oshkosh North to open the playoffs. He was chosen from a strong group of nominees in Level 1. A total of 4,643 votes were cast, as Zuern's 1,612 were enough to edge second place Seth Wilson of Holmen, who tallied 1,290.
It was a wild Level 1 game between Oshkosh North and host Hartford, as the teams combined for 39 points in the fourth quarter, including 31 in the final 5:23 of the game. After a Hartford field goal put the Orioles up 45-42 with just 10 seconds remaining, Zuern made a game-saving tackle on a North lateral play to end it. He also rushed 29 times for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns and led the team with 74 receiving yards.
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.
