LANG WINDHAM – FAN VOTE
It was an unforeseen performance by Lang Windham, who came out of nowhere to claim Player of the Week honors. Windham was a force to be reckoned with at Ridgeland in the season opener, and was rarely stopped.
All told, the sophomore back tallied 148 rushing yards, and added 39 receiving yards for a total of 187 yards of offense. He scored the first TD of the season for the #1-ranked Wildcats, and averaged 10.6 yards per carry.
