Tyrus Wheat, a freshman from Amite, La., earns KDMC Athlete of the Week honors after helping the Wolves secure a 41-27 victory over Hinds last week.
Wheat was stellar on Thursday as he wrapped up eight tackles, second-most he's had this season, against the Eagles. Wheat also posted two interceptions on the night that he returned for a combined 28-yards. Wheat is currently fourth on the team in tackles with 45 and tied for the most interceptions with his two picks.
