Athlete Of The Week: Drew Riemenschneider

Posted: Updated:

Our Athlete Of The Week is the quarterback on an undefeated team,. But, he doesn't get a lot of attention. The Cuero offense features Jordan Whittington, who's accounted for just over 2000 all-purpose yards this season. The Cuero offense features Bralon Taylor, the 6-7 tight end who's committed to sign with Baylor. The Cuero offense features Keiran Grant, who's rushed for 29 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Drew Riemenschneider goes about his business as starting quarterback. The senior has been the starter the past two seasons. The Gobblers' record during that time, 25-1.
Said Riemenschneider, "As the season's gone on I've improved a lot just by studying film and getting better at what I do. I have a long way to go and I can get way better than I am right now." In the past two playoff games, Riemenschneider has thrown for a total of just over 500 yards and six touchdowns.>.
Said head coach Travis Reeve, "Drew has really come a long ways over the last two years. He's athletic, he's always thrown the ball well. His decision-making, the little details about being a quarterbacks, he's really come a long way. He's done a great job for us this year of spreading the ball around, getting us in the right play and taking what the defense gives us."
This season, Riemenschneider has 24 touchdown passes to only three interceptions. He threw two TD passes last week to Whittington. Riemenschneider also ran for a touchdown and ran for a two point conversion. "For me to run, it's always exciting because I don't get to run a lot. When I get a chance I like to take it. Our line does a great job of protection. I just get it to the wide receivers when they get open." Cuero football, back in the 4A Division II regional finals for the third straight year. The Gobblers will face Wimberley Friday night at 7:30 in Bastrop. This is a playoff rematch. The Mean Green beat Wimberley in the regional semis last year.
