Noah Lavender, John Milledge

The senior running back was huge in his final high school game, his 202 yards rushing accounting for 89 percent of the Trojans’ ground attack in the 17-0 GISA Class 3A title-game win over Gatewood.

The senior accounted for 239 of the Eagles’ 371 yards in total offense with 119 on the ground and 114 through the air, completing 7-of-12 passes and rushing 20 times.

Caleb Speir, Mary Persons

The underclassman came up big at quarterback, completing 10-of 19 for 207 yards and no interceptions in a shootout win over Heritage.
