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.

Cameron Thomas (RB, Picayune)

vs. Gulfport (W)

Rushing: 29 car, 343 yards, 3 TDs

The Maroon Tide are again rolling quietly under the radar with a perfect 3-0 record going into this week. They added another statement win to their resume against the 6A coastal powerhouse. Thomas came in the clutch by doing what Picayune does best: run the ball. His game winning touchdown gave his team a thrilling 54-47 win over the Admirals. The Tide will roll into Poplarville this week.

Justin Smith (QB, Holmes County Central)

vs. Murrah (W)

Passing: 14-17, 346 yards, 7 TDs

Rushing: 2 car, 15 yards

The Jaguars have no issues sending the Mustangs back to Jackson with a blowout loss. Smith put up a Peyton Manning type performance with his seven touchdown tosses, all those yards, and being efficient while doing so. Memphis Central will travel to Lexington this week to take on Holmes County Central, now winners of two straight.

Brandon Hayes (WR, Oak Grove)

vs. Hattiesburg (W)

Receiving: 8 rec, 220 yards, 4 TDs

Talk about taking over a game. The Warriors erased a big first half hole in large part to this guy on the perimeter. Quarterback Damon Stewart also had himself a game, going 13-17 with 308 yards and five TD tosses. Four of those TDs went to Hayes, who mathematically had a staggering 27.5 yards a catch against their nearby rivals. The win put Oak Grove in the Top 10 for the first time this season and they will welcome Archbishop Rummel to the state of Mississippi this week.
