Each week during the high school sports season, The World-Herald staff nominates five players to be considered for the Family Fare high school athlete of the week. Every Monday, we'll post our picks — athletes who have shined in recent games, whether it be hitting a game-winning shot or playing lock-down defense, piling up points or a record-setting performance.

After losing 14-12 to Centennial on Sept. 2, Yutan was more than happy to get another shot at the top-seeded Broncos in the first round of the Class C-2 playoffs. The Chieftains played that way, too, rolling to a 34-6 win last Friday.

Yutan came into Friday night’s playoff opener at Centennial as the No. 16 seed in Class C-2. The Chieftains played like anything but in their 34-6 win. They advanced to host St. Paul next Friday and ended Centennial’s unbeaten season.

Throughout the summer, The World-Herald will prepare you for the high school football season with previews of new teams each day. Working their way up from the smallest class, the ratings are based on last season’s final Top 10. This week, Class C-2 is featured, with Nos. 5 through 10 today.
