Mayfield selected as week 7 KBEC Sports Player of the Week

By KBEC Sports

A little over 400 votes decided the KBEC Sports Player of the Week winner following week seven of the high school football season. 

And, after 53,533 votes were cast, it was Life Waxahachie Gage Mayfield who was selected by fans as the most outstanding player of the week. 

Mayfield received 24,797 votes (46.3%) to edge Palmer quarterback Adrian Cisneros, who finished with 24,381 votes (45.5%). 

Mayfield accounted for five total touchdowns and 403 total yards in a 55-35 home victory for the Life Waxahachie Mustangs against Athens in week seven. Following the game, his head coach, Heath Blalock, called the victory the first “signature win” for the Mustangs in several years. 

Mayfield completed 8-of-his-10 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing 15 times for 173 yards and two more touchdowns. 

The Mustangs improved to 5-1 on the season and 1-0 in 9-4A with the win.

Mayfield will be presented with a commemorative KBEC Sports Player of the Week certificate at a date to be announced.

Red Oak running back CJ Palmer (3,185 votes, 5.95%) and the Midlothian Heritage offensive line (1,170 votes, 2.19%) also received votes in the week seven poll.
