PACKWOOD, IA – It’s time to announce our KRKN Athlete of the Week, brought to you by Shawn McCarty, your State Farm insurance agent, providing insurance and financial services with offices in Fairfield and Washington.
The KRKN Athlete of the Week is: Pekin football player Michael Jones. The senior tailback rushed for a season-high 258 yards on just 14 carries with two touchdowns in the Panthers’ 38-12 road win Friday @ Louisa-Muscatine. His performance helped snap a three-game losing streak for Pekin ahead of the regular season finale this Friday against Van Buren County.
Ottumwa Radio’s Athlete of the Week program is made possible by the generosity of Shawn McCarty and State Farm Insurance, and the cooperation of our area high schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Michael Jones! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success as the season moves forward.
