Josh Brooks, Windsor: The senior running back picked up right where he left off last year, scoring five touchdowns and accounting for 230 yards of total offense in a 48-15 victory over Bethlehem Christian.
Kyle Glover, Dodge County: The senior was his usual two-way thorn in an opposition’s paw, rushing 15 times for 71 yards with a touchdown and leading the Indians with seven tackles, helping give Bleckley County its worst loss in the rivalry since a 43-0 Dodge County win in 2007.
Shon Jones, Vidalia: The Indians lost an offensive threat with running back/linebacker Nate McBride’s injury, but Jones stepped up offensively with 160 yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries in the sixth-ranked Indians’ 21-0 win over Swainsboro.
Courvoisier King, Howard: The senior quarterback recovered from a slow first half against Lamar County in which he went 1-for-7 with two interceptions, completing his first three passes of the second half en route to a 211-yard, two-touchdown night through the air in a 28-19 victory. He also ran in a touchdown.
Isaiah Nelson, Northside: He had quite a debut as a starter in the secondary, with two interceptions, including one returned 67 yards for a huge fourth-quarter touchdown in the 27-24 win at North Cobb. He was in on more than a half-dozen tackles.
Alphonso Stephens, Howard: The senior receiver came up with two big touchdown catches in the second half against Lamar County, going for 34 yards two minutes into the second half to give the Huskies a lead, then breaking an 85-yarder with 5:40 to go that effectively decided things. He finished with four catches for 134 yards.
Treyvon Willis, Northside: The junior was all over the field, running and catching in the win over North Cobb. He led the Eagles with seven catches for 82 yards, including the game-winning 20-yard catch with 22 seconds left.
