(Festus) St. Pius High School senior James Smith was chosen as the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.
The quarterback and safety did a little bit of everything for the Lancers in their 46-14 win over Grandview on Friday. James completed 10-of-20 passes for 283 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. On defense he recovered a fumble for a touchdown, had two interceptions, 11 solo tackles and four assisted tackles.
St. Pius head coach Frank Ray says Grandview came in with a game plan to take away the run game.
Coach Ray says the senior is a great leader.
For being named Athlete of the Week, Smith will receive a t-shirt, certificate and a coupon for a free entrée at Applebee’s in Farmington.
