HURON — Four Huron football players received Player of the Week honors for their performance for the Tigers in a 44-3 loss against Yankton on Friday at Tiger Stadium.
Sophomore quarterback Dylan Lichty received the offensive honor. It was the first varsity start of his career.
Earning the defensive honor was senior Carter Hott in his defensive back position.
“He played well in the secondary covering opponents receivers in one-on-one situations, as well as coming up to make some open-field tackles,” Huron coach Scott Spanton said.
Kicker Aung Min earned the special team honors after putting the lone points on the board for the Tigers. The senior converted on the first field goal of his career from 35 yards out in the opening half.
Junior Killian Malley, who fills roles as a wide receiver and defensive back, was the scout team Player of the Week for Huron.
“He did a good job during the week giving a good look on scout offense and defense,” Spanton said.
The Tigers, who are now 2-5, will travel to face Tri-Valley at 7 p.m. in Colton. The Mustangs are currently 2-4 following a 34-14 loss to Canton on Friday.
