The Centier Bank Performers of the Week are Valparaiso senior running back Tommy Burbee and South Bend Adams junior wide receiver Sydney Jefferies.
In Friday’s 40-6 triumph over Chesterton, Burbee scampered 26 times for a career-high 240 yards with four touchdowns as the No. 3 (Class 5A) Vikings improved to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the Duneland Athletic Conference.
Although the Eagles (0-5) came up on the short end of a 62-32 decision to Penn this past Friday, Jefferies still put on quite a performance by returning an interception 59 yards for a touchdown, hauling in a 27-yard pass for another score, and also returning a kickoff back 93 yards for another tally.
The Centier Bank Performer of the Week is open to any male-female student athlete who participates in any IHSAA sanctioned sport and whose school is in the Centier Bank geographic area.
