Some of the best performances from the seventh week of high school football season in Kentucky.
Matthew Barber, Paris
Twenty carries resulted in 212 yards and three touchdowns for the sophomore, who led the Greyhounds in a 34-14 win over Bracken County, avenging a two-point loss — their first at home to the Polar Bears — from the year before.
Nick Bohn, Trinity
Never miss a local story.
Four receivers scored touchdowns for the top-ranked Shamrocks in a 28-0 shutout of rival St. Xavier, and it was Bohn who found them all. He had 237 yards on 32-for-42 passing, his fourth game throwing for over 200 yards this season.
Charles Collins, Montgomery County
The sophomore put on a show in the Indians’ 60-36 win at South Laurel to improve to 5-1, their best start since 2007 (also 5-1). He rushed for 264 yards and four TDs on only 11 carries, all coming in the first half and the first drive of the third quarter. Collins also had a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Connor Hearn, East Jessamine
Talk about deja vu: the Jaguars defeated Mercer County, 30-27, the same score by which they defeated the Titans nearly to the day last season. Hearn, a senior, had 177 rushing yards and three TDs in the effort to help East Jessamine snap a two-game slide and go to 1-0 in district play.
Dalen Landrum, Dalton Tucker and Dalton Williams, Bourbon County
Tucker, the 6-foot-6, 295-pound lineman who’s committed to Marshall, and Williams, a 5-10 linebacker, combined for the game-ending tackle in the red zone to send Bourbon County back to Paris with a 27-26 road win over Mason County. Williams finished with 15 tackles, unofficially.
It was Landrum who put the Colonels in position to have a lead to save. He connected with Justin Blankenship on a 27-yard TD pass — his fourth of the night — to put Bourbon ahead, 27-20, with 4:28 remaining in the game. The junior finished with 308 yards on 26 of 36 passing.
