CORPUS CHRISTI — All-state running back Shiloh Whetsel’s scamper for a touchdown during the Premont game was selected as KRIS TV Channel 6’s 2011 Play of the Year.

The Refugio High School senior won by more than 1,000 votes.

During the play, Whetsel broke six tackles and ran for a touchdown.

Shiloh explained the play to Channel 6’s sports director Tyler Garrett.

“It was pretty crazy,” Shiloh said. “I wasn’t expecting it and it was pretty crazy when it happened.”

Shiloh scampered right and saw defenders so he cut to the left.

“The guy had a hold on me but my little brother (Chase) knocked him off,” Shiloh said. “It was almost the whole team, it seemed.”

Linked to the state champion Bobcats, Shiloh gave his teammates credit.

“If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here.”
