Chaparral safety Colby Targun has been named this week's Arizona Cardinals and Wells Fargo "High School Player-of-the-Week."
Targun had three interceptions and returned two of them for touchdowns (45 and 31 yards) in helping the Firebirds improve to 4-0 with a 48-21 win over previously undefeated Mesquite High School.
