Bishop Gorman junior Tristan Saint was named the American State Bank Player of the Week for his performance last Friday.

Saint led the Crusaders to a 24-17 win over Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill with his play at quarterback and linebacker.

On offense, Saint put up 150 yards passing and 76 yards rushing, scoring three times on the ground. On defense, he caught the interception that helped seal the victory and end Gorman’s six-game losing streak.

Saint also played a role on special teams, where he punted three times for a 41.7 average, including two punts downed inside the 5.

“Tristan is a leader on and off the field,” Gorman coach Coby Gipson said. “He was voted team captain as a junior by his teammates. He is always the last one to leave practice in order to get extra work in with his position coach and also is the leading voice of encouragement in the weight room. He is the model citizen in the classroom, maintaining a great GPA. It is awesome that he has won this great award.”

Saint is a member of the Crusaders baseball team and serves as a tutor for the Boys and Girls Clubs as well as Parents Anonymous. He currently holds a 3.7 GPA.

Each weekly winner (weeks zero through 10) of the ASB Player of the Week award automatically receives an invitation to the end-of-year banquet to recognize the weekly winners. One of those 11 weekly winners will be chosen as the American State Bank Player of the Year and receive a $10,000 scholarship to the college or university of his choice.
