Christian Burks, Liberty, football
Liberty had no problem scoring in a lopsided 35-12 victory over Arlington Grace Prep last week, and Burks provided a staggering blow for the Warriors. Burks returned an interception 26 yards for a touchdown with only two seconds left in the first half, giving Liberty a 21-0 lead at halftime.
Ian Sadler, Argyle, football
Sadler had no catches against Kennedale, but he scored three touchdowns — one rushing touchdown, a 59-yard punt return TD and an 80-yard kickoff return TD. Sadler added to his case for being the area’s most electrifying player any time he is on the field.
Collin Scribner, Aubrey, football
Scribner and the Chaparrals finally picked up their first win of the season after defeating Pilot Point last week. Scribner, the 6-foot-4 senior, hauled in three catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns. His 33-yard TD reception from QB Kyle Lynn sealed the Chaps’ win over their rivals.
Reese Thompson, Argyle, football
While Argyle’s offensive stars shined brightest against Kennedale last week, Thompson had a strong performance in the secondary. Thompson had six tackles, forced a fumble and returned a fumble for an 80-yard TD late in the first half, sending the Eagles into halftime on a strong note.
Caz Wojciak, Krum, football
For the second straight week, Wojciak finds himself earning recognition for his performance on the field. The Krum quarterback passed for 99 yards and rushed for 122 yards in Krum’s 54-7 blowout of Paradise. Wojciak accounted for four touchdowns in the victory (two passing, two rushing).
