Offensive player of the week (9/15): DeSoto's Desmon White
What he did: White picked apart Euless Trinity’s defense throughout a dominating first half in which he threw for 325 yards and ran for 99 more. He didn’t need to play much in the second half of DeSoto’s 61-35 victory.
Who he is: A 5-8, 140-pound senior quarterback.
The stats: 23-of-30 passing for 364 yards and five touchdowns; 12 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown.
He said it: “It just came [to us]. We didn’t come out planning to throw for how many yards that we did. They just gave us some looks and we took them.”
Coach said it: “Our guys get up for big ballgames, and that was a big game for us. Dez has a great supporting cast around him, and they’re executing for him.” — Claude MathisDid you know?
White has now won SportsDay’s offensive player of the week honor three times during the past two seasons. … The senior has completed 71.4 percent of his passes this season and has yet to throw an interception. … White has no FBS offers yet. “If he was 6-2, 6-3, he’d probably be the top quarterback in the state,” Mathis said.
