Athlete of the Week: Pecos’ Armando Granado


Congratulations to our Athlete of the Week: Pecos’ Armando Granado!

The senior amassed 210 yards rushing, including four touchdowns, in the Eagles’ 45-0 win over Levelland.

The victory was the team’s first playoff win since 1975.

Several other circumstances also helped make that accomplishment even more memorable. First, it provided a postseason victory to the team’s first-year head coach, Chad Olson.

Last week’s contest was also the team’s first playoff game since the passing of Jonathan Aguilar and Ethan Medina, two juniors from last year’s team who were killed after a car crash in January.

Pecos (7-4, 4-2) will face Glen Rose (6-5, 4-0) in the Area round.
