Joe Labas of Brecksville is the Week One NEOSI High School Football Player of the Week

The Brecksville Bees nearly scored a big opening night upset against the tough Olmsted Falls Bulldogs at home, falling in the final seconds by a point 28-27.

One reason though for optimism for the Brecksville program is the play of junior quarterback Joe Labas, who this week took home our week one award for the ‘NEOSI High School Football Player of the week.’

Labas won with 34 percent of the votes (1389 votes), topping Brunswick QB Jacob Scherette who came in second with 30 percent of the over 4,000 votes (1248 votes).

On the night Labas went 21-for-32 passing for 285 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 65 yards and another touchdown on the ground.

Congrats to Joe and all of our candidates from week one!

The awards final voting went as follows

Joe Labas Brecksville 34 Percent

Jacob Scherette Brunswick 30 Percent

Drew Schiano Perry 19 Percent

Andrew Wilson-Lamp Massillon 15 Percent

    How do you win player of the week and lose? His stats weren’t that good.
