Times – Braylon Finney wins Shreveport Times Week 2 football Athlete of the Week

Captain Shreve’s Braylon Finney secured enough votes this week to win the Times online poll for Football Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers and the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission.

A standout senior wide receiver for the Gators, Finney becomes the second football winner of the 2021-22 school year.

Finney and his supporters totaled 698 votes, a solid 24% of the 2,883 votes cast in the weekly online recognition. Those numbers allowed Finney to top a field of 11 additional candidates, including second-place Jacob Lafitte of Loyola College Prep, who totaled 496 votes (17%).
