Sunnyside Christian High School football player Nate Scheenstra was named one of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association’s players of the week for his performance last Thursday.
Scheenstra put up 128 yards rushing and 157 yards receiving, along with three touchdowns. On defense, he had a sack that resulted in a touchdown for the Knights.
The senior was nominated for the award by a community member and selected by WIAA staff.
Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA recognizes 12 varsity athletes, a male and a female from each of the six classifications, who exhibited an outstanding performance the previous week.
In recognition of their accomplishment, each Athlete of the Week winner receives a congratulatory letter from WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese, a commemorative WIAA State Athlete of the Week t-shirt and a certificate.
