ESKO, Minn.- With Esko football capturing the section 7AAA title Thursday night in a 29-28 win over Aitkin, it felt right for our ‘Athlete of the Week’ to be a player from that game. Senior wide receiver and safety Preston Lowe was a part of every single scoring play that night. Lowe scored all four touchdowns including a 38-yard interception return, an 87-yard run and he was on the receiving end of a beautiful 94-yard pass from Dylan Vinje to lead the Eskomos to this huge win.
After the loss of teammate Jackson Pfister a few weeks back, Lowe and the rest of the Eskomos play and persevere in honor of Pfister.
The Eskomos now prepare for the Class AAA State Quarterfinals on November 9that 3pm at Brainerd High School where they will play the section 5AAA champions.
