The Little Caesars Player of the Week – Cody White
9 months ago Andrew Luberda 1
County Line Preps is pleased to have a sponsorship agreement with specific Little Caesars locations in Queen Creek and Coolidge.
Little Caesars, home of the Hot-‘N-Ready pizza, will sponsor the Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards as part of our agreement.
Each week, CountyLinePreps.com will announce the Player of the Week, accompanied by a Q&A with that week’s winner.
The Player of the Week will receive a gift certificate, redeemable for a two-liter bottle of soda, a pepperoni or cheese pizza, and an order of Crazy Bread, that will be honored at one of the two aforementioned Little Caesars locations.
Additionally, the Player of the Week automatically qualifies for the Player of the Month Award, which will be determined by a poll that will be posted on our County Line Preps Twitter account during the final week each month.
The Player of the Month will receive a plaque and a $25 Little Caesars gift card.
Now that we’ve provided details of both awards, we are pleased to announce this week’s Little Caesars Player of Week:
Combs High School – Junior
5’ 9” 170
White rushed for 269 yards on 30 carries and three touchdowns in the Coyotes’ 48 – 7 victory at Coronado on Oct. 13.
The junior running back, who transferred from Highland High School, was required to sit out the first five weeks of the season under the stipulations of the transfer rule. Since entering the lineup, White has totaled 543 rushing yards, 70 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.
Like his introduction to the Yotes’ lineup, it’s better late than never to be named the Little Caesars Player of the Week.
