Another week of high school football has come and gone, and Jimmy Holiday still looks unstoppable. The Dandy Dozen senior had yet another big game, single-handedly accumulating 422 yards of offense and accounting for five touchdowns in Madison Central's 34-21 win over Pearl in a matchup of last week's top teams in the Clarion Ledger Super 10.
Holiday now has 1,043 total yards (571 rushing, 466 passing) and 14 touchdowns and has led Madison Central to a 4-0 record. Football fans will have to wait another week before seeing him in action again as the top-ranked Jags have a bye this week.
Several other top teams are enjoying a bye week as well, but there's still plenty of compelling matchups across the state.

Jimmy Holiday (QB, Madison Central)
vs. No. 2 Pearl (W)
Passing: 9-13, 161 yards, TD
Rushing: 17 car, 255 yards, 4 TDs
The Jaguars have held our top spot in our rankings since the preseason. In this #1 vs. #2 matchup, the Jaguars happened to have the top guy you want in these big games. Holiday proved once again to be unstoppable with his five touchdowns en route to a 34-21 victory. Madison Central will rest up this week before facing Clinton next week.
D.T. Sheffield (ATH, Corinth)
vs. Olive Branch (W)
Passing: 245 yards
Rushing: 109 yards
4 total TDs
It's no secret that Sheffield was going to be crucial to Corinth's push for a 4A title this season. What better way to show what he can do against not only a 6A opponent, but all that talent they have on the other sideline. His 359 yards of total offense proved to be the difference and the Warriors came away with an enormous 38-26 win. Corinth will travel to Kossuth this week.
