Former Liberal High School wide receiver Reece Petty was named the KU offensive scout team player of the week on Thursday by KU head football coach Mark Mangino. Mangino made the announcement at the beginning of his weekly press conference on Thursday.
Petty is a walk-on and a redshirt junior and saw the playing field for the first time as a Jayhawk in a 49-3 victory over Northern Colorado in KU's opener back on September 5.
The Jayhawks will conclude their regular season on Saturday in Kansas City as they will face Missouri in the Border Showdown at Arrowhead Stadium. KU must win if they are to become bowl eligible.
