We rolled right over them.

Sparked by a grandma on a mission, Wolf Nation overwhelmed 37 other fan bases to carry our guy to a lopsided win at the polls.

Coupeville High School senior Xavier Murdy, one of the leaders of a 13-0 boys basketball squad, handily won a voting showcase which ended Sunday night.

The poll brought together a mad mix of girls and boys from across the state, and hailing from every classification, and was hosted by SB Live Washington.

Its official name is the “WaFd Bank Washington High School Athlete of the Week,” and for the dates of Jan. 17-23, that’s one Mr. Murdy.

And it was like a tsunami hitting the shore, as the Wolf senior captured 138,436 votes, or 48.14% of every vote cast.

Murdy held off Zillah hoops star Ashton Waldman, who started strong, and finished less so, ending with 113,106 tallies.

Third place was way, way back, with Eastlake’s Will Woodward, a basketball player who has signed with the University of Washington as a baseball star, eking out 8,185 votes.

In all, the 38 athletes involved in the poll brought in 287,568 votes.

Hard worker, selfless player.

Coupeville High School senior Xavier Murdy is prone to filling up the stat sheet, but always with an eye on one thing — the final score on the board.

“We got the dub!” is how he proudly summed things up after a recent romp, part of an 11-0 start for the red-hot Wolves.

Monday, Murdy got some respect from the big boys in the biz, when Scorebook Live hailed his work from last week, when he helped spur CHS to four wins in five days.
