Brady Peat, Sr., RB/DE, Iowa–Grant football

     Senior halfback Brady Peat’s performance stood out about a number of remarkable Week 1 performances. Peat rushed for a career-high 255 yards and five touchdowns to power Iowa–Grant to a 38–14 non-conference victory over visiting Richland Center last Friday night. Peat is this week’s Mast Water Technology SWNews4U.com Athlete of the Week.

     Peat, who rushed for 1,328 yards and 13 touchdowns a year ago, is now on pace to blow those numbers out of the water. He scored on runs of 19 and 5 yards in the second quarter to power the Panthers to a 20–0 halftime lead. He then broke loose for a 60-yard TD scamper in the third quarter and added touchdown runs of 21 and 3 yards in the final quarter to close out the season-opening victory. He also finished third on the team with eight tackles, including three tackles for loss.

     “Brady is a very hard worker and that translates to the field,” said Iowa–Grant head coach Gary Allen. “He has experience, he is quick, he has good vision, but mostly he runs very hard. He gives everything he has for the team.

     Peat helped the Iowa–Grant defense limited the Hornets to 193 yards and nine first downs. Iowa–Grant returns to action Friday at Wauzeka–Steuben/Seneca (1–0).
