DaCoven Bailey, Pilot Point, WR
Bailey was his quarterback’s favorite target in Pilot Point’s 50-2 victory against Paradise. Bailey hauled in seven catches for 132 yards to help the Bearcats remain undefeated in District 5-2A (I) play. Bailey’s 67-yard touchdown reception started the scoring for Pilot Point. Bailey added a 24-yard touchdown catch later in the contest.
Brandon Boyzuick, Argyle, QB
For yet another week, Argyle cruised in district play. In last Friday’s lopsided win over Carrollton Ranchview, Boyzuick didn’t need to throw the ball often to have success. The senior quarterback completed 8 of 15 passes for 210 yards and three touchdowns. Boyzuick spread the ball around, as he completed passes to six receivers.
Thomas Ferguson, Guyer, DL
In a game where Guyer was superb defensively, no individual caused more havoc than Ferguson. The Guyer defensive lineman had 13 tackles, including a whopping nine tackles for loss and three sacks in the Wildcats’ 66-3 win against Lake Dallas. The Guyer defensive line helped hold the Falcons to only 32 rushing yards.
Key’andre Hearvey, Denton, WR
The Broncos’ passing attack has been one of their biggest strengths this season, and Hearvey was a key reason why they won their first District 5-4A game this season. Hearvey hauled in four catches for 103 yards in Denton’s 51-16 victory against Fort Worth Brewer. Friday night’s game accounted for almost 30 percent of his receiving yards this season.
JonAaron Howell, Liberty Christian, DB
The senior defensive back singlehandedly outscored Plano John Paul II last Friday. Howell scored the first and last touchdowns in Liberty’s 42-7 win. The touchdown returns of 25 yards and 11 yards were two of his three interceptions on an evening when Liberty came away with four total interceptions.
