Player of the Week: Nick Araujo, Milford Football

Nick Araujo
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Milford senior Nick Araujo has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Nov. 20 through Nov. 26. Araujo is the 12th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2023-24 school year.

Araujo capped off a stellar career with three touchdowns and 25 of his team’s 31 points in a Thanksgiving Day victory over Taunton. As a running back, linebacker, punter, and kicker, he helped the Hawks finish second in the Kelley-Rex division, take the top seed in Div. 3, and reach the state semifinal for the third straight year.

In the final game against the Tigers, Araujo rushed for a pair of scores and caught one, kicked a field goal, two extra points, and rushed for a two-point conversion, as the Hawks won 31-21. He got the game started with a 62-yard TD reception from Owen Callahan in the first quarter. After Taunton took a 7-6 lead, Jason Stokes returned the kick for a touchdown, with Araujo finding the end zone on a conversion rush to make it 14-7. Taunton tied the game going into halftime, but Araujo rushed for a pair of scores in the third quarter, one from three yards and the other from 17, and kicked both extra points. He added three more points with a 39-yard kick in the fourth quarter, which put Milford up by 17 at the time.

There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
