(KNSI) - Most of the time, the St. Cloud area and its many talented athletes make it tough to distinguish who is worthy of the weekly award.
However, sometimes, an athlete like Kedrick Osuorah comes along and performs in a manner the likes of his school had never before witnessed in its illustrious history.
If there ever was a question is to how important the senior is to his football team, those questions were answered last Friday night against Apollo.
St. Cloud Tech had their hands full with cross-town rival Apollo as the game went wire-to-wire but the Tigers pulled away with the 40-36 victory.
Pulling away was not easy but Osuorah was up to the task to the tune of 40 carries for 345 yards and four touchdowns, all Tech Tiger Football records.
After the game, head coach Jon Benson said the numbers that Osuorah put up were great but it was more about what was inside his star running back.
"The big stuff with [Kedrick] tonight wasn't the stats, it was the heart; [Kedrick] came out and made play after play after play."
Osuorah and a few of the Tigers were dealing with exhaustion and cramps on the sideline for most of the second half but the star gave a performance his coach will not forget anytime soon.
"I'll remember this performance; this night on this field with this kid for the rest of my life, this was truly remarkable."
Osuorah and the Tigers now take their 1-1 record to the other side of town to face the Sabres in Sartell this Friday, September 13th at 7:00 p.m.
A replay of Osuorah's performance and the Tigers' game against the Sabres can be watched right here; the Sartell game can also be heard right here or on AM1450 and FM99.3 with the pregame starting at 6:45 p.m.
Congratulations, Kedrick and good luck to you and the Tech Tiger Football Team for the rest of the season and beyond!
