Chris Thurston Named Falcon Club Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville high school running back Chris Thurston has been named the Falcon Club Player of the Week.

The junior ran for 225 yards and scored four touchdowns in the Knights 30 point win over Louisa County last Friday.

"All I got to do is give it to my team, and the linemen for opening the holes for me, and for my vision, to hit the hole 100%, to get to the endzone," says Thurston. "Our team was playing together, working hard, and showing they had faith in me to give me the ball, to get the job done."

Thurston has helped lead the Black Knights to a 3-1 record in the Jefferson District, and Charlottesville has already clinched its first playoff birth in 10 years.

The Black Knights play their last game of the regular season Friday at 7:30 pm at Powhatan.
