Lawrence County's Noah West tabbed as Player of the Week following 60 point performance

LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - It's high school football in November, meaning players step up or go home.

"When you step out on the field on Friday Nights you don't go out expecting to break records, you just try to go out and win the game," said Lawrence County Coach Alan Short.

That's what the Lawrence County Bulldogs did last Friday night, not playing for themselves but the guy right next to them.

"Thursday I asked the guys and I said I want you to look at the seniors on this team and I want you to play for them. I want you to play for me," said Quarterback Noah West.

With an offense centered around new University of Kentucky recruit, Wandale Robinson, Western Hills put up 74 points. But Lawrence County senior quarterback Noah West went point for point.

"Let's keep giving this kid the ball obviously he had a night to remember," said Short.

A night to remember indeed. Noah West rushed for 396 yards 7 touchdowns and scored 60 points, ranking him 4th in the state for most points scored in a game.

On top of all that, he even made the game-clinching interception.

"It was pretty to awesome to come off the field and you know everybody's throwing numbers at me. I left here with the biggest grin and I couldn't get it off my face the rest of the night but it took everybody," said West.

Coach Alan Short said the career night couldn't have happened to a better kid.

"Noah is a leader. He is very active in the community and in the school. Just a hard worker that goes about his business and he is very humble and just all around a great person."

While Noah was grinning from ear to ear last Friday, the senior isn't done leading his team as the Bulldogs get set for Boyle County this Friday Night.
