Starting with the first week of the season on both sides of the state line PrepsKC will announce a Papa John’s Player of the Week. Each week those players will be highlighted on PrepsKC.com and in their local Papa John’s location.

A player of the week will be awarded for all nine weeks of the regular season. At the end of the Kansas regular season a Papa John’s Player of the Year will be selected from the weekly winners. The Players of the year will each receive a pizza party for their team at the end of the season.

Below is this week’s Papa John’s Player of the Week

Daymonn Sanchez, running back, Olathe North

The junior had a huge night as the Eagles beat Lawrence 35-14 in the second round of the Kansas Class 6A playoffs. Sanchez finished with 312 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries.

Wyatt Reynolds, running back, Harrisonville

Reynolds was a workhorse for the Wildcats carrying the ball 23 times for 157 yards and one TD in Harrisonville’s 24-21 district championship win at Grain Valley.
