Springfield– This week’s Athlete of the Week is Wyatt Woods.

Woods is a senior quarterback on the Republic Tigers football team.

Last Friday, Woods led the Tigers into battle against a hostile Ozark crowd and came away with a convincing, 41-14 victory.

Woods was responsible for three of the Tigers six touchdowns on the night – two on the ground and one through the air.

He also managed to run in a two point conversion midway through the second quarter. His stellar play has Republic 2-0 heading into a showdown with Webb City this Friday.
