There were many great performances this past week, and truthfully, this could have been a week with only quarterbacks on this list. Getting these nominee lists down to 10 is tough every week, especially when the usual suspects have great performances week-in and week-out.
Week 6 nominees:
QB Quinn Ewers (Southlake Carroll): 22-35 passing, 331 yards, 4 TDs; 9 rush, 117 yards, 2 TDs
RB Hayden Whites (Fort Worth Lake Country): 20 rush, 279 yards, 4 TDs; 2 rec, 24 yards, 1 TD
QB Garrett Rangel (Frisco Lone Star): 16-21 passing, 390 yards, 5 TDs
WR Marvin Mims (Frisco Lone Star): 8 rec, 261 yards, 4 TDs; 1 rush, 36 yards
RB Dequan Landon (Richardson Pearce): 42 rush, 297 yards, 4 TDs
QB Caleb Arnold (Carrollton Ranchview): 12-22 passing, 204 yards, 5 TDs; 13 rush, 143 yards
QB Garrett Nussmeier (Flower Mound Marcus): 20-28 passing, 345 yards, 5 TDs
QB Ken Seals (Weatherford): 18-21 passing, 369 yards, 5 TDs; 7 rush, 48 yards
RB Jalen March (Arlington Seguin): 19 rush, 201 yards, 3 TDs
WR Jerand Bradley (Plano John Paul II): 11 rec, 140 yards, 1 TD; 1 rush, 1 yard, 1 TD
VOTING ENDS NOON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10.
Week 3 must have been the peak of my predicting prowess (going 20-4) as I went 17-7 in Week 4 and 16-8 last week. On the year, I'm a respectable 70.7 percent right (82-34). I hope to have that percentage up to around 75 by the end of the regular season. That entails me going 115-31 the rest of the way.
Below are the 22 other games of note I'll try our best at predicting a winner in addition to the two deeper-dive games: The Colony downing Frisco Liberty; Wylie coming out on top of Lakeview Centennial
#5 Southlake Carroll (4-0) vs. #3 Denton Guyer (4-0)
We like what Guyer has been doing so far this season between Kaedric Cobbs and Eli Stowers having knocked off Aledo on the road, downing Cedar Hill at the Cotton Bowl and rolling past North Crowley and Keller Central. This was a four-point game at Carroll last year, so we're going to pick Guyer to win at home this year. But regardless of the outcome, this 6A Top 10 matchup should be a good'n.
