Matt Blakely - Junior, Matt Blakely, was nominated by Coach Peters.  Matt is a Running Back for the Rough Rider Varsity Football team.  He had a tremendous game in Saturday's 21-20 thrilling win over Chisholm Trail.  Matt contributed in both the running and passing game.  On the ground, Matt had 20 yards rushing with 15 of those yards coming on a touchdown run that turned out to be the game winner.  He also added two receptions for 18 yards.  Both of his receptions were pivotal catches that gave the Rough Riders first downs to continue drives. "Matt has played a large role in the Rough Rider offense all season and his work load expands every week.  He is a great team player who also contributes on special teams."  - Coach Peters
