Vote Now for the High School Player of Week 6 [POLL]
Week six 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.
Landon Bartlett - Running Back, South Spencer
A first time nominee, the Rebels running back ran for 257 yards on 38 carries with five touchdowns including the game winner with 58 seconds remaining in their 32-27 win over Pike Central. To date, the junior is averaging 5.8 yards per carry with 10 touchdowns.
Kerrion Ringo - Reitz High School
The speedy senior is a threat wherever he lines up on the field, splitting his time between running back and slot receiver. On Friday, he did the majority of his damage from the tailback position, carrying the ball 16 times for 128 yards and three touchdowns to help the Panthers squeak by a tough Memorial Tigers squad, 36-29. He also added two catches for 36 yards.
Nick Sellers - Quarterback, Gibson Southern
At the risk of sounding like a broken record — Nick Sellers is good. The senior play caller was responsible for five of the Titans' six touchdowns in their 42-13 win over previously undefeated Heritage Hills Friday night. Sellers threw for three touchdowns to three different receivers, completing a steller 89% of his passes (16 of 18) for 252 yards while also racking up 114 yards on 18 carries and two more scores.
Drayke Richardt - Running Back, Mater Dei
The senior running back continued his dominance out of the backfield for the Wildcats, carrying the ball 32 times for 236 yards and three scores. He also fumbled twice, losing one in their 34-27 win over a strong Castle Knights team.
Jaylon Owens - Running Back, Pike Central
Despite losing to South Spencer after the Rebels scored the decisive touchdown with 58 seconds to go, Jaylon Owens did everything he could to keep the Chargers in it until the end, carrying the ball 25 times for 194 yards and three scores.
