ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

October 07, 2008

Billy Cosh Arundel, football

The senior quarterback led the Wildcats to a 46-25 come-from-behind victory at Anne Arundel County opponent Meade on Friday, overcoming a shaky first half to throw for 364 yards and six touchdowns.

Arundel (4-1) trailed 19-6 late in the first half before Cosh, in his first season as a starter, threw five touchdown passes in the second half. He completed 26 of 41 for the game and went 13-for-16 for 225 yards in the second half. Four of his touchdown throws went to Syracuse-bound senior wide receiver Alec Lemon, including the last three in the fourth quarter.

In five games this season, Cosh has connected on 99 of 157 passes for 1,385 yards and 20 touchdowns.

She was named Most Valuable Player, with 44 kills, 12 aces, 15 digs, two blocks and four assists, in the tournament, which the Bravehearts polished off with a 25-14, 25-16 title-match victory over Washington's Pius VI.

Happel also had 13 kills and five digs in a three-game loss last week to No. 2 St. Paul's. She averages 3.6 kills for the Bravehearts (6-4), a team of home-schooled girls. She followed sisters Vanessa and Faith into volleyball and has been playing since she was 10. She has made an oral commitment to Liberty University.
