Thomas Kakutani, a senior on the Winters High School varsity football team, is the Athlete of the Week. Kakutani, an all-around athlete that plays on both sides of the ball for the Warriors, has 368 receiving yards with three touchdowns on the offensive side of the ball and 47 tackles with two interceptions on defense for the season. But that’s not what stands out to coach Daniel Ward.
“Thomas is our team leader in receiving yardage,” Ward said. “But more importantly he is a team captain and vocal leader. He leads by example and gives 100 percent every day. He is an all-league caliber safety that never comes off the field.”
