Each week the WIAA Executive Board, its staff and member schools select 12 student athletes from around the state as state athletes of the week.
Sophomore Michael Amsel, Jr. was selected as one of the WIAA/Seattle Times Athlete of the Week based on his efforts to help lift the Chelan Goats over rival Cashmere on October 15.
In that game, Michael scored two touchdowns, threw for three passing touchdowns, had 233 yards of rushing, 148 yards of passing and 11 tackles to add to his already burgeoning statistics.
So far this year, Amsel has rushed for 797 total yards and passed for 871 yards.
“It’s a great honor,” said Coach Darren Talley. “There are 12 selected each week out of the entire state.”
In other football news:
Aaron McQuaid has been released by his doctor to return to the playing field which is good news for Coach Talley as the team heads into the final game against the Cascade Kodiaks. “They are tough, but then, all of the teams have been tough this year,” said Talley.
McQuaid, who had been out for several weeks with Mono, was replaced on the field by Matt Robinson who has proven to be an excellent receiver. “When one player is out, another always steps up,” said Talley. “I will probably start Matt on defense and Aaron on offense or split them to either side of the field on offense. We just have to get Aaron back in shape.”
Chelan has the home field advantage locked up for the first playoff game and will face Riverside High School (Spokane) on November 6 beginning at 1 p.m. The winner of this game will be the District 6/7 No. 2 seed on the State Football Playoff bracket.
