OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Blue Valley Northwest running back Miles Alexander put on quite a show last week to earn this week's Hy-Vee Athlete of the Week award.
The junior rushed for more than 150 yards for two touchdowns, including the game-winner Friday night against Blue Valley.
The Huskies beat the tigers 31-28 to improve to 3-2 this season.
"It's a big accomplishment and I want to to thank my team. It's not all me, it's a team thing. I'm just happy to get it with the help of my teammates," Alexander said.
Blue Valley Northwest takes on an equally impressive team Friday night. They play Blue Valley Southwest (3-2), at 7:00 p.m. at the Blue Valley District Athletic Complex.
