FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Bishop Dwenger quarterback Mike Fiacable is the Parkview Sports Medicine 21Alive Football Player of the Week for the first Friday night of the season.

Fiacable passed for 272 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Saints' victory over South Side.

The win was Fiacable's first game since missing all of last season with a knee injury. He credits his successful return to the gridiron with working through adversity.

"I wouldn't be where I am without an injury like that," Fiacable adds. "Praying and working hard and rehabbing and getting bigger, faster and stronger. "

Dwenger battles Concordia for the Piston Trophy on Friday night, and Fiacable will be a key to the Saints trying to return atop to Summit Athletic Conference
