Gridiron Players of the Week: Week 8
Well, if you like scoring, wild stats and crazy games Week 8 was just for you.
The biggest game ended up being a wild 73-70 victory for Tomball Memorial over Cy Lakes in what turned into a Saturday afternoon slugfest. Not one time this season have we selected two Gridiron Players of the Week from the same game.
But this was a special occasion.
Colton Marwill – Tomball Memorial
Start with the victor in the mega-showdown. Marwill finished 23 of 33 for 414 yards and seven touchdowns; 11 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown. Marwill helped power the Wildcats to the win in the end.
Sofian Massoud – Cypress Lakes
There are not many times you contribute to 10 touchdowns being scored and you are on the wrong end of the scoreboard. Cy Lakes quarterback Sofian Massoud finished 26 of 38 for 527 yards and six touchdowns and rushed for another 125 yards and four scores.
Eli Smith – Second Baptist
The Second Baptist Eagles are rolling. Sitting at 6-0 entering this week, the Eagles took care of business against Westbury Christian, which Smith rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown on seven carries. Smith for the season now sits at 563 yards and eight scores. This is the second-most yards he's rushed for this season with his season high being 154 against Concordia Lutheran.
Jaydon Blue – Klein Cain
You're my boy Blue! The sophomore running back has quickly emerged as a star out of the backfield. Against Klein Forest, Blue rushed 12 times for 232 yards (19.3 yards per carry) and two scores. That is the fourth time that Blue has busted loose for over 200 yards. Blue is a workhorse for the Hurricanes and will continue to be a problem for opposing defensive coordinators.
Caleb Chappelle – The Woodlands Christian Academy
In The Woodlands Chrsitian Academy's 55-20 victory over Frassati Catholic, the top target for senior quarterback Aaron Monsivaiz was receiver Caleb Chappelle. The junior finished with a team-leading seven receptions for 159 yards – a new career-high – and a touchdown. Chappelle has 28 receptions for 520 yards and eight scores this season.
