Congratulations to RHS Eagles middle linebacker Cade Corey for winning The Dallas Morning News Defensive Player of the Week.
Corey is a 5’ 9” 180 pound senior middle linebacker who helped secure Richardson High School’s first win of the season with his second recovered turnover of the game. After falling behind 28-12 at the half, Richardson used two 21-point quarters to complete a 54-50 comeback win over Richardson Pearce.
For the game, Corey had 6 tackles, 4 assisted tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 sack, 1 QB pressure, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery and 1 interception.
It was a very emotional win not only for Corey but for the entire team. After the game, Corey said “Oh man, there was so much emotion. I don’t think I’ve seen anybody so happy. Coach Chandler was just jumping up and down. Everybody was giving me hugs, and it was just so emotional for me, because it’s my last year. I helped seal the win. It was an amazing feeling; it was just incredible.”
