JJ Higgins of John Bapst Memorial High School has won our McDonald’s High School Athlete of the Week with 41-percent of the total vote over Cheyenne Beem of Dexter High School, Camille Kohtala of Orono High School, Connor Crawford of Ellsworth High School, and Nick Clawson of Foxcroft Academy

The senior helped the Crusaders to a second straight victory with a 32-13 victory over Waterville this past Friday.  Higgins threw for three touchdown passes in the contest, including a throw of 68 yards, and added a scoring run of three yards as well.  Bapst is now back at 500 on the season through four weeks and will host 3-1 Nokomis this week.

Higgins took home the vote with almost 1,700 submissions this past week.
