Congratulations to Teton's Thomas Heuseveldt for being voted SBLive’s WaFd Bank Idaho High School Athletes of the Week for Oct. 30-Nov. 4!

By now, fans of Idaho football probably know that this do-everything senior leads the state in touchdowns and receiving yards. And against Buhl in the Class 3A quarterfinals, Heuseveldt threw a touchdown pass, caught a touchdown and rushed for a touchdown to go along with 14 catches and 130 yards in a 41-28 win. Teton is playing this week in the state championship game.

Heuseveldt collected 87.9% of the overall vote, well ahead of runner-up Amani Morel, of Skyline football.
