State Farm Insurance awarded the Washington High School football team $2,500 for being one of the winners of the Friday Night Feats video contest.

The prize-winning video, taken by the father of junior Camron Noorzad, featured defensive end and tight end senior Cedric Lousi’s play during the third quarter of the Sept. 12 football game against Deer Valley High School. Quarterback senior David Ross passed the ball to Lousi, who ran 60 yards to score a touchdown with five Deer Valley players on his tail.

“We were losing. So [the Deer Valley team was] talking a bunch of trash. That made me mad,” Lousi said. “I did whatever I could.”

Although the Washington Huskies ultimately lost the game 14-35, Lousi’s play won them $2,500.

“It’s a great cap to the season,” Coach Ken Wittmer said.

The 2009 Friday Night Feats contest highlights the grandest moments of the high school football season. Fans and a panel of judges determined the winners of the contest. Out of the 350 videos submitted, State Farm Insurance awarded $2,500 grants to 51 winners. The top three additional high schools won $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000, respectively.

The insurance company’s public affairs specialist Sevag A. Sarkissian and three Fremont State Farm agents visited Washington High School’s student center Dec. 17 to present the $2,500 check. Wittmer, the football team and school administrators attended the presentation.
