Sonic Drive-In Player-of-the-Game for Thursday, Sept. 2 – Thomas Weinhardt (Buchholz)


The Sonic Drive-In Player-of-the-Game for Friday, Sept. 2, was Thomas Weinhardt of the Buchholz (Gainesville) football team.

The junior blocked a Riverview (Sarasota) punt inside the 10-yard line and recovered the ball in the end zone for a 38-6 lead with 20 seconds to play in the quarter. The Bobcats went on to win the game, 45-6, to improve to 2-0.

“We were in punt safe and my job on that is just to rush off the edge, so I went hard and when I laid out I felt it hit my chest and then it was just go get the ball and score,” he said.

The Bobcats will play at rival Eastside on Friday, Sept. 9.

Every game The Prep Zone will recognize a Player-of-the-Game. The recipient receives a $10 gift certificate courtesy of Sonic Drive-In of Gainesville & Ocala.
