THIS WEEK’S BEST PERFORMANCES
Austin Barnett and Brice Fryman, Scott County
The pair contributed pretty equally to Scott County’s 31-21 win at Lafayette. Fryman, a senior, had 18 carries for 190 yards and a touchdown, while Barnett, a junior, rushed 18 times for 139 yards and three TDs. They made up the bulk of the Cardinals’ 323 yards of rushing production against the Generals.
Montaveon Bean, Frederick Douglass
He threw for 225 yards and three TDs in a 49-22 win over Tates Creek, the first victory for the Broncos. Bean was 11 of 19 without an interception. He also rushed for 27 yards and a TD, which was the first score in program history after Douglass was shutout in its debut at Danville last week.
Jake Chisholm, Ryle
Covington Catholic held the senior running back to 39 yards on 12 rushes in the first game of the season; he made up for it in the second one. Chisholm rushed for 250 yards and four TDs in a 34-28 win over Henry Clay at Lexington Catholic. He was held to 30 yards on nine carries in the first half but gashed the Blue Devils for 220 yards on 21 carries in the second.
Austin Hammack, Simon Kenton
The sophomore made the most of 19 carries against Bryan Station: He rushed for 234 yards and two TDs in a 49-27 Pioneers win, almost doubling his production from the week before (122 yards and a TD in a 47-13 win at Meade County).
Deonde Howard, Central
For the second consecutive week, Central sealed the deal in a close contest thanks to an interception by Howard. He picked off a pass to finish off the Yellow Jackets’ 13-12 win at Western one week after doing the same thing in a 7-0 win at Manual.
