Basha High School quarterback Kyle Duran has been named this week's Arizona Cardinals and Wells Fargo "High School Player-of-the-Week."
Duran completed 21 of 31 passes for 415 yards and six touchdowns to help the Bears defeat Corona Del Sol High School 41-3 last week. The win improved the Bears record to 7-1 this season.
The eighth-year Arizona Cardinals Football Club "Player-of-the-Week" award, presented by Wells Fargo, is selected by a local sports panel consisting of Cardinals Director of Community Relations Luis Zendejas, Community Relations Coordinator Sheldon Meeks, NBC-12 sports reporter Bruce Cooper, 16-year Arizona high school football official Bob Ferreira, AIA Director of Media Marketing Brian Bolitho, Channel 3 sports anchor Brad Cesmat, 1060 AM radio host Dan Manucci, and Wells Fargo representative Jeff Smith.
A football plaque acknowledging the award will be presented to Duran by a Cardinals alumnus at a ceremony at Basha High School (5990 S. Val Vista Drive, Chandler) on Thursday, October 28 at 11:45 a.m. The Bears host Mesquite High School on Friday night.
