Victoria West Warriors, Omar Posada, named Athlete of the Week

VICTORIA,Texas– This week’s Athlete of the Week is Victoria West senior basketball player, Omar Posada. Posada and the Warriors are heading into the regional quarterfinals after defeating the Sharyland Pioneer Diamondbacks 54-49.

In Monday’s game against Roma, Posada had 33 points and made eight 3- pointers behind the arc.

“My success is based off my teammates trusting me every game, even if I have an off game to shoot the shot and hopefully hit it,” said Posada.

He averages 14 points in district games and in Wednesdays playoff game, Posada made a clutch three pointer to keep his team’s hopes alive. He was humble and speechless in being named Athlete of the Week.

“It’s a very special honor. I don’t know what to say, I really don’t, ” continued Posada.

Coach Erskine gives his input about Posadas performance this season and his impact on the team.

“I mean this season has been a number of games where you can tell Omar had to step in when our other players were down. When they weren’t scoring Omar was lifting the team up,” said Erskine.

The Warriors are set to play in the quarterfinals on Saturday in Alice against Niki Rowe High School.

Congratulations to Omar Posada, for being named this weeks edition of Athlete of the Week.
