***The player who receives the most overall votes between the offensive and defensive selections will be named the overall First Star Logistics Player of the Week***
The polls have closed for the Week Three First Star Logistics Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week on FirstStarFootballReport.com.
First Star Logistics is happy to announce that Little Miami High School senior quarterback Brody Reder was voted Offensive Player of the Week and sophomore linebacker Jared Hancock of Wyoming High School was voted Defensive Player of the Week for Week Three of the football season.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
BRODY REDER – LITTLE MIAMI HS
Senior quarterback Brody Reder has Little Miami sitting with a 3-0 record and is the second quarterback from the Southwest Ohio Conference to earn Offensive Player of the Week honors (Connor Kinnett – Harrison). This season, Reder has passed for 381 yards and five touchdowns while also rushing for 443 yards on only 44 attempts with eight touchdowns. Reder is receiving recruiting interest from Butler, Valparaiso, Morehead State, Ohio Dominican, Northwood and with a preferred walk-on offer from Central Michigan. This week the Panthers head into conference play on the road against Mount Healthy (1-2). A win could set up a big match-up the following week with Talawanda who is also 3-0 entering this week’s games.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
JARED HANCOCK – WYOMING HS
Only a sophomore, Hancock came up big for the Cowboys with 16 total tackles, including nine solo stops along with forcing a fumble in a hard fought 10-7 win over Mount Healthy. The win continues the Cowboys winning streak after winning a state championship last season. While most of the attention goes to future Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Evan Prater, Hancock is part of a defensive squad that has only given up 14 total points in the first three games of the season. Wyoming will be on the road Friday as they take on an 0-3 Reading squad.
