By Jason Van Arkel, August 24, 2017

The Kiss FM/KRKN/KTWA Athlete of the Week is Pekin running back Monico Requena. The senior had two rushing touchdowns and returned two punts for scores in the Panthers’ season-opening 41-7 win over Albia. He talks about whether it’s more fun to score on a long running play or a punt return, and his confidence heading into the Backyard Brawl against Sigourney-Keota.
