The Bethel High School Wildcats Football Team has something to be proud of this season! Their own quarterback, Joe Piatnik, was named WFSB’s Friday Night Athlete of the Week for Week 11! Joe had 249 rushing, 3 rushing touchdowns and 3 touchdown passes. Joe, junior at BHS, received a “Property of Friday Night Football” t-shirt and a caricature of himself drawn by artist Bob Domfried.

Joey said winning “feels great; it’s an honor.” Joey attributes his success to hard work and encouragement from his coaches and father. “My coaches Jason Gill and Bruce Martin, the offensive coordinator, and my dad have always pushed me pretty hard so I really thank them for helping me to become the player that I am today,” he said.

Joe, who grew up in Bethel and has been playing since he was 7-years-old, said he would like to pursue football professionally. So far he has looked at Temple, Rutgers UCONN, Villanova, Central Michigan and Missouri Colleges.

If after high school football doesn’t work out, he said, he does have a backup plan. “I want to study engineering and maybe own my own business someday,” Joe said.
