ASB Player Of The Week
Alto Running Back Aaron Skinner Named the South Division
American State Bank Player of the Week for Week 10
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Alto, Texas) – American State Bank is proud to announce that Aaron Skinner, Running Back for the Alto Yellowjackets, has been named the Week 10 American State Bank Player of the Week for the South Division, effective November 5, 2019.
Skinner played a big role in the Yellowjackets’ 57-8 win over the Hawkins Hawks, carrying the ball 19 times for 254 yards rushing and finding the endzone 5 times. With Skinner winning this award, this marks the first time in the history of the American State Bank Player of the Year program that there are 3 separate winners from one school in the same season.
Others receiving votes this week were:
Center RB Koemodre Horace, Joaquin RB Connor Bragg and Diboll WR Jeremiah Gums.
“Everyone here at Alto are extremely proud and happy for Aaron’s success”, stated Alto head coach Ricky Meeks. “He is really playing great now that he is the lead back. Aaron was splitting time at the running back position with another player who was moved to wide receiver due to injuries on our team. With that, he has really stepped up and played hard. He is really a team guy who puts in his time behind the scenes to help the team be successful. He is very deserving of this recognition”.
“A lot of good things are happening with the Alto football program right now and it shows with them having their 3rd ASB Player of the Week this season”, said Tim Haugh of American State Bank. “They’ve got good players in the skill positions and should make a good run come playoff time”.
Each week, American State Bank will be selecting a weekly winner from the North and South Divisions. All 22 weekly winners will be pledged a $2,500 scholarship. One of those weekly winners will be named the ASB Player of the Year and will be pledged an additional $7,500 scholarship for a total of a $10,000 scholarship. All scholarships are good to the college, university or accredited trade school of the weekly winners’ choice.
