Amador, Mendonca named Week 10 Players of the Week

Fresno High cornerback Chris Amador was voted the People’s Choice Player of the Week, while Mt. Whitney quarterback Tucker Mendonca was named the Editor’s Choice Player of the Week for Week 10.

Amador intercepted two passes, recovered a fumble and returned it for a touchdown and broke up a pass. The junior cornerback’s performance helped Fresno get the Pig back from Roosevelt for the first time in five years.

Mendonca was statistically perfect leading his Mt. Whitney Pioneers into one of the most-heated rivalries in the state. In annual Cowhide showdown with Redwood, Mendonca completed 23-of-23 passes for 416 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Amador and Mendonca are limited to being named Player of the Week once for the 2012 season (regardless whether it is People’s Choice or Editor’s Choice).

Each team is only allowed one winner per calendar month.
