Boonville senior offensive and defensive lineman Greyson Mesik is this week’s Player of the Week for his play during the Pirates 48-7 win over the California Pintos.
A two-way player for the Pirates, Mesik finished with a total of seven tackles (six solos/one assist) along with six tackles for losses to help the Pirates improve to 3-1 overall and 1-1 in the Tri-County Conference. For the season, Mesik has a total of 17 tackles and nine tackles for losses along with one fumble recovery.
Mesik said on the win against California: “I think we did pretty well, especially on defense. Offensively, I have some stuff to work on so I will just have to improve before next week. But I thought the team as a whole did well. We just had a lot of meaningless penalties and shot ourselves in the foot.”
After the game Friday night, Mesik offered his insight on his favorite movies, food and sport team just to name a few.
