This week's Metro Sports Commission player of the week honor falls on Sartell St. Stephen High School running back Eric McAffee.
The senior rushed 31 times for 245 yards and two touchdowns in the Sabres 24-17 victory over the St. Cloud Apollo High School Eagles. The win, fueled by McAfee's efforts, put the Sabres in the sectional championship game for the 2nd straight season.
McAfee had touchdown runs of 25 and 17 yards in the win and his 245 total yards mark his second straight 200 yard rushing effort to go with three 100 yard games this season. McAffee rushed for a total of 1193 yards so far this season and scored 14 touchdowns.
The Sabres will face the Moorhead High School Spuds in the section 8-5A title game Friday night at 7 p.m. The game will be carried live on 800 AM.
Congratulations Eric McAfee on being the All Star Trophy and Awards Player of the Week!
