Vote Now for the High School Player of Week 3
Week three of the high school football season is in the books, and now you get to decide who put on the best performance from this past weekend's games.
It won’t be easy, as these five young men each put up really impressive numbers to help lead their respective teams to victory.
Tias Stewart - Running Back, Central
The Central Bears are now 3-0 on the season thanks in large part to the legs of Stewart who has been a beast out of the backfield for the Bears over the first three weeks of the season. The Junior back carried the ball 19 times for 121 yards and four — count 'em — FOUR touchdowns in their 47-0 win over visiting Bosse Friday night.
Shawn Coane - Running Back, North
Coane finds himself nominated for the second straight week after another impressive outing. Despite dropping the game against Memorial Friday night, Coane tore up the Tigers' defense for 142 yards on 19 carries, one of which found its way into the end zone.
Jackson Pokerney - Wide Receiver, Mater Dei
The Mater Dei Wildcats found themselves in quite the dogfight Friday night at home as the Harrison Warriors took them to the wire. It wasn't until there was less than two minutes left on the clock that the Wildcats took the lead for good. Pokerney was a big part of Mater Dei's wi, hauling in six catches for 190 yards and one touchdown.
Noah McClean - Wide Receiver, Castle
In a wild game at Castle that found the Knights with a chance to win after recovering an on-side kick with 12-seconds left on the clock, but ultimately losing to the Reitz Panthers 35-30, Noah McClean was a big reason the Knights were able to stay close throughout. He quickly became the favorite target for QB Dayne Keller, hauling in 11 catches for 198 yards.
Evan Deig - Quarterback, Reitz
The Panthers' QB had another great game in week three, making plays with both his arm and his legs when the team needed him most. He ended the night with 24 completions on 34 attempts, 270 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He also picked up 65 yards on 15 carries.
Joe Bichler - Running Back, Princeton
The Princeton Tigers remained undefeated on the season with a 54-17 win over Washington thanks to the legs of running back Joe Bichler who carried the ball for 211 yards and five touchdowns.
