Posted: Updated:

Linsly's Chinelo Oparanozie has been selected as the WTRF/Robinson Auto Group Athlete of the Week.

The senior running back scored five touchdowns, and ran for a career-high 283 yards, in a 52-24 Homecoming game victory over Western Reserve Academy on Saturday in Wheeling.

The win snapped the Cadets' five-game losing streak.

Oparanozie has been the workhorse of the Cadets all season, rushing for more than 100 yards in five of its seven games this season.
