Dallas Ehrmantraut of the Verndale football team is the SportsCow.com Male Athlete of the Week.
Ehrmantraut has been a big part of the Pirates' success this season, but even more so over the past couple of games.
In the final regular season game against Ortonville, the Verndale senior scored four touchdowns. Ehrmantraut topped that effort in the first round of the 9-Man/Section 4 tournament with a five TD performance against Isle.
"Dallas has been steady all year, but he's scored nine touchdowns in a span of five days," said Verndale head coach Mike Mahlen.
Add to that two more TDs in the Pirates' loss to Underwood on Saturday and the Verndale senior has 11 scores in a little more than a week.
The touchdown breakdown looks like this: receiving (7), rushing (3), defensive (1). The defensive touchdown came when Ehrmantraut returned an interception 50 yards for a score in the regular season finale against Ortonville.
Dallas finished the season with a total of 15 touchdowns combined.
