Our Player of the Week posts are designed to recognize the top kicking, punting and long snapping performances of the week in Minnesota at the High School Level.

We had an exciting week for football in the second full week of the Minnesota High School Football Season.  There were a number of high scoring games as well as a number of great performances by specialists and more field goal attempts, which we always love to see.  Our top Minnesota High School specialist had a busy game.  Alex Brennan of Prior Lake High School converted all 5 of his PATs as well as kicked 1 field goal of 23 yards.  Alex had a great game and is off to a great start this season.


The top punter in Minnesota was Drew Hmielewski of Marshall High School.  He kicked a 48.3 yard average on 3 punts.  Congratulations to everyone that had a big game.
