Receiving 49% of the votes, Nathan Cottrell from West is the Week 3 Offensive Player of the Week. In the 34-20 win over the non-conference, out-of-state contender, Asheville, Cottrell turned 18 carries into 207 yards and three touchdowns. Cottrell also returned two kick-offs for 108 yards. Cottrell said his most memorable moment of the game was when they were 3rd and 40 and he was able to break through to put up the points.
"Probably should've passed it but I told coach we could get it done. The line opened up the holes and got our blocks down. We just did what we had to do and got down there and scored," said Cottrell.
