Week 9: Metro State Farm Player of the Week
Metro State Farm Player of the Week
Brenden Barker - Sandia
The Sandia Matadors earned a big win during week nine beating District Rival Manzano 34-14. The Matadors are now 6-2 on the season, their best start since the 2006 season and are just two touchdowns away from being a perfect 8-0 under Head Coach Kevin Barker.
This week's Metro State Farm Player of the Week is Coach Barker's son Brenden who has had an excellent season at receiver and defensive back. Last weekend against Manzano, Barker caught for 169-yards and two touchdowns as well as an interception on the defensive side of the football.
"You can tell he is a Coaches' son from his work ethic and on and off the field leadership. He is also a next level football prospect and had a memorable performance at the NMPreps.com Elite Combine. At 5-foot-10 and 169 pounds, Barker benched pressed 185 pounds 19 times, ran a 4.68 40-time, ran a 4.50 pro-agility time, and had a 31 inch vertical jump. His overall numbers were among the best out of the 250 athletes that attended this summer," Commented Kyle Henderson of NMPreps.com.
Sandia will take on Eldorado this week in a very important Class 5A match up.
