Valley Christian High School quarterback/safety Jordan Morgan has been named this week's Arizona Cardinals and Wells Fargo "High School Player-of-the-Week."
Morgan completed 12 of 21 passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns in the Trojans 45-6 opening round playoff win against Hayden last Friday night. He also collected three interceptions on the defensive side of the ball in the win.
The sixth-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, Sports 620 AM anchor Paul Calvisi, NBC-12 sports reporter Bruce Cooper, 16-year Arizona high school football official Bob Ferreira, Cardinals radio analyst and Sports 620 AM talk show host Ron Wolfley, AIA Director of Media Marketing Brian Bolitho, former Arizona high school coach Emil Nasser, 1060 AM radio host Dan Manucci, and Wells Fargo representative Jeff Smith.
A football plaque acknowledging the award will be presented to Morgan by a Cardinals alumnus at a ceremony at Valley Christian High School (6900 W. Galveston Street, Chandler) on Thursday, November 13 at 4:00 p.m. at the school's football field. The Trojans continue in the playoffs on Friday night at home against Northwest Christian at 7 p.m.
