Vote for the Evansville High School Football Player of the Week 9 [POLL]
The final game of the regular season wrapped up Friday night for all schools in the Tri-State as they turn their attention to Sectionals this weekend. For the following seven young men, they made sure to end the regular season with a bang.
Take a look at what each was able to accomplish and cast your vote for who you think should be our player of week in the poll below.
Jadrien Higginson - Running Back, Castle
Higginson not only had personal best at home against Memorial, he broke the school rushing record previously held by Christian Peach when he carried the ball 31 times for a mind-blowing 411 yards, and five scores.
Elijah Harvey - Running Back, Harrison
The Harrison Warriors finished the 2015 regular season with seven wins, an accomplishment they hadn't achieved since 1998 when they finished the regular season undefeated before losing in the second round of the Sectionals. Harvey was a key player in the team's regular season finale, running for 122 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries.
Camdon Cartwright - Running Back, Boonville
The Pioneers grabbed their sixth win of the season under first year head coach, Darin Ward thanks in large part to the legs of running back Camdon Cartwright who racked up his fifth 200-plus yard game of the year, finishing with 285 yards on 28 carries, three of which went for touchdowns.
Drayke Richardt - Running Back, Mater Dei
A frequent candidate for Player of the Week this season, Richardt managed 156 yards on 29 carries for the Wildcats with one score in their 29-28 win over west side rival, and at-the-time undefeated Reitz Panthers. However, his biggest play of the night happened with his arm, not his legs, when he completed a pass to wide receiver Zack Allen in the end zone for a two-point conversion that gave Mater Dei the win with 44 seconds left in regulation.
Nick Sellers - Quarterback, Gibson Southern
The Titans of Gibson Southern continued their steamrolling of opponents to finish the season undefeated and champions of the Pocket Athletic Conference. QB Nick Sellers wrapped up the regular season by guiding the Titans to a 50-0 win over Southridge throwing 15 completions on 20 attempts for 161 yards and three scores. He also carried the ball 11 times for another 110 yards and a touchdown.
Dorian Williams - Running Back, Central
Dorian Williams has taken full advantage of his opportunity to start since taking over for the injured Tias Stewart. The 5'5", 150 pound back ran roughshod over the North Huskies, racking up 258 yards on 43 carries with one trip to the end zone. He also caught one pass for 47 yards that resulted in a touchdown.
Kenton Crews - Wide Receiver, Heritage Hills
The Patriots ended their season with an 8-1 record, thanks largely to the multi-talented Crews who was used throughout the season out of the wide receiver and running back position. The Senior finished his final regular season by catching three passes for 161 yards, all of which resulted in touchdowns.
