Kenyatta Harrell (RB, Pearl)
vs. Ridgeland (W)
Rushing: 31 carries, 364 Rushing Yards, 6 TDs
What do you do after you run for over 180 yards in the first two games? You run for almost 300 by halftime. That’s what Harrell did this past Friday night as he and the Pirates rolled past the Titans 62-21. He will need another great performance this Friday as Pearl travels to take on Madison Central in a titanic matchup.
Philip Short (QB, MRA)
vs. Jackson Academy (W)
Passing: 19/29, 364 Passing Yards, 5 TDs
Short got back on track this past week after only throwing one touchdown the past two games he went off Friday night picking the defense of Jackson Academy apart as he and this offense continue to look unstoppable. He and the Patriots will look to move to 5-0 this week as they travel Cleveland to take on the Bayou Academy Colts. Patriots vs Colts in the NFL this would be a classic let’s see if it is this Friday.
Dustin Allison (QB, Pass Christian)
vs. Purvis (W)
Passing: 19/30, 272 Passing Yards, 3 TDs
Rushing: 12 carries, 71 Rushing Yards, 1 TD
Allison and the Pirates continue their turnaround season after a thrilling 39-36 win against Purvis. A year after going 1-9 the Pirates have tripled that win total through three games. The Pirates look to stay undefeated as they host West Hamilton this coming Friday a team, they were shutout by last year I highly doubt that will happen this year.
Triston Newson (OLB, Independence)
vs. Palmer (W)
Defense: 14 Tackles, 7 TFL, 2 sacks, INT
Yes, there was defense on Friday and one of the best performances was put out by Newson and the rest of the Wildcats as they held Palmer to negative yards rushing (-1) and shut them out. Newson was all over the field as you can tell by his stat line. He and the Wildcats defense will need another performance like this Friday as they host Potts Camp who as put up back to back 50-point performances.
Khi Holiday (QB, TCPS)
vs. Biggersville (W)
Passing: 22-35, 402 Passing Yards, 4 TDs
Rushing: 75 Rushing Yards, 2 TDs
Holiday makes it three straight weeks that his performance has ending up being talked about by SES, and what a performance it was putting together nearly 500 yards of total offense and 6 total touchdowns a big-time performance he put together against Biggersville. He and the TCPS offense will look to keep it rolling as they travel to take on Nanih Waiya. Makes it easy when you have two receivers go off, to see those performances check out the notables.
