UPDATE (SEPTEMBER 25): Travis Brannan won the Friday Night Fanstand week three player of the week. He leads the area with 890 rushing yards.

“A big part of why we’ve had success with our running game can be attributed to our stellar offensive line this year along with great down field blocking from our wide receivers,” Brannan said.

“It’s a big honor to have won this award, it’s a big assurance that everything I’m doing to prepare has paid off,” Brannan said.

Travis will be presented with a plaque at the next school pep rally to show off what he has achieved, as well as giving him a tangible reminder of his accomplishments.

“It means a lot that the community took the time to vote for me. It tells me that I’m affecting a lot of people and that’s such a cool thing to think about,” Brannan said.
