EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Aug. 25, 2011 -- Austin Schapker's performance last Friday night in Reitz's thrilling 21-20 overtime win over Henderson County, which included three catches for 104 yards and two touchdowns, inspired the readers of ReitzFootball.com to vote the senior as the Week 1 David Enterprises Player of the Week.
The voting was very close, as Schapker won it by only two votes over the team defense, who also played a big part in the Panthers' win.
Austin Schapker (21)
Team Defense (19)
Nathan Tidwell (5)
Maurice McRae (2)
KeAndre Vaughn (0)
Schapker was in the running several times last year for the weekly voting, selected by the readers of ReitzFootball.com's forum and Facebook pages, but had previously been unable to win the honor.
Congratulations to Schapker and the Reitz Football team on their win.
