D’Wanye Winfield of Lutcher named Greater New Orleans Prep Player of Week
Lutcher quarterback D’Wanye Winfield of Lutcher has been named as the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl Prep Player of the Week in the Greater New Orleans area for week three by CrescentCitySports.com, Ken Trahan’s Original Prep Football Report on NASH ICON 106.1 FM, the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club and for Friday Night Football on WNOL/WGNO.
A junior, Winfield completed 5-of-5 passes for 50 yards and rushed 28 times for 263 yards and five touchdowns in a 41-19 victory over St. James.
“I told everyone that it took a game of that magnitude that he would get the attention he deserves,” Lutcher coach Dwain Jenkins said. “That’s the type of performance he has had for the last seven or eight games, dating to last season. All of the things you see on the field pale in comparison to him as a person and a leader. He is such a leader.”
Jenkins knew what he had in Winfield early on in his career.
“There’s no question that’s why we made him a starter last year,” Jenkins said. “He was what we wanted representing our program. He has just continued to grow and develop and has picked up where he left off. He was brilliant in the playoffs last year so he is picking up where he left off.”
Winfield will be honored at the year-end meeting of the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club on Dec. 14 at Rock’n’Bowl.
