Each week, I will go through the box scores of all of our teams and pick four players whom I will turn to you, the people, to determine our Player of the Week. Go over to our twitter page to vote: @FNVictors
There are a lot of choices in a given week, so narrowing them down to four is a challenge in itself. If you have anyone in particular to nominate, hit me up on Twitter (that will actually help me out more, as my Friday nights are busy with officiating).
You can then vote in our Twitter poll to determine the final outcome.
Without further ado…
Jack Mills, RB, Airport: Mills is building a strong case for Offensive Player of the Year through the first two weeks. In a 48-27 win over Riverview, the senior carried the ball 19 times for 130 yards and three scores, and also caught three passes for 23 yards and a score. The win also snapped a 29-game regular season winning streak, as well as a 22-game Huron League winning streak for Riverview.
Ethan Layton, WR/RB, Dundee: Layton showcased multiple ways to score, as he ran the ball ten times for 70 yards and three scores, caught a 44-yard touchdown pass, and ran for a two-point conversion in Dundee’s 41-18 win over Erie Mason. He also threw a touchdown pass.
Brian Booms, RB, Flat Rock: Booms turned in a record-setting performance for the Rams in a 35-6 win over Grosse Ile. He carried the ball 17 times for 181 yards and a school-record five touchdowns. Booms also had a five-yard reception and a two-point conversion run.
Drew Harris, RB, SMCC: Harris turned in a breakout performance for the Falcons in a 19-13 win over Huron. The junior rang up 147 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries, caught two passes for 27 yards, and also kicked an extra point.
Honorable Mention: Jake Wadsworth, RB/K, Summerfield; Nolan Zajac, WR/K, Airport, Billy Gaskell, QB, Milan; Dinato Gandara, RB/KR, Monroe, Whiteford Defense.
