Kennedy Perales of Logan High School and Brevin Egbert of Sky View High School have been named this week’s boys and girls Cache Valley Media Group Prep Players of the Week, presented by McDonalds. Perales, the goalkeeper for the Grizzlies girls soccer team, is the girls player of the week while Egbert, the Bobcats’ running back, is the boys player of the week.
Oddly enough, both players earned their accolades by helping their team to wins against the other player’s school.
Perales helped Logan to a win over Sky View, a game that ended in a penalty shootout. The two sides were tied 0-0 through the entirety of regulation and overtime, with Perales keeping the clean sheet through the 100 total minutes. In the shootout, Perales made one save and saw one miss from Sky View with Logan winning in PKs 4-1.
Egbert, now a three-time winner of the boys prep player of the week, dominated in Sky View’s 69-18 over Logan. He had 13 touches (12 rushes, one catch) on the evening and tallied 316 yards from scrimmage (247 rushing, 69 receiving) with six total touchdowns (five rushing, one receiving). The six overall TDs is a career-high as is the 247 rushing yards. The 316 scrimmage yards is the second-highest of his career.
