This week’s Athlete of the Week is Cameron Russell. 

When asked how it felt to receive this honor, Russell responded, “Feels good, feels rewarding, really proud of myself.” 

Russell plays for the Co-Op Oil City Oilers Football team and has already begun an extremely fruitful season with 9.5 sacks, 74 carries, 640 rushing yards, 6 touchdowns, and 5.5 tackles. 

Russell also competes with the basketball team, the track and field team, and the wrestling team. 

Receiving this award proves to be especially motivational for Russell. 

He has stated that he plans to continue to work hard and hopefully motivate others to do so as well.
