L’Travion Brown, Tascosa, RB-DB, Sr.

Brown made his presence known on both sides of the ball during Tascosa’s 60-18 blowout of Lubbock-Monterey. Brown intercepted the Plainsman’s first pass of the game going 43-yards for a touchdown. Less than three minutes later, the senior found pay dirt once again this time taking a pitch 63-yards for a score on the offensive side of the ball.

Jordan Herndon, Clarendon, RB, Sr.

Herndon took a punt back 80-yards with 4:32 remaining in the game giving Clarendon its only lead, as the Broncos made it stand up stunning No. 5-ranked Wellington, 21-20. Herndon tacked six tackles during the epic road win as the Broncos are now in prime position to claim the District 4-2A Division II title.

Jayden Jara, Dumas, DE, Jr.

Jara gave Hereford fits as part of a Dumas defense that held the Whiteface offense to 106 total yards in the Demons 45-0 shutout. Jara couldn’t be blocked making 12 tackles, four sacks, as well as two tackles for a loss.

Jones was also part of a massive defensive effort that limited Gruver to 78 total yards. The senior finished his defensive play with two solo tackles and three pass deflections.

Isay Ramirez, Canadian, RB, Jr.

The junior running back did his part and then some keeping Canadian unbeaten in District 3-3A Division II with a 33-27 home win against Friona. With injuries at certain spots, Ramirez has literally ran with an opportunity, and it showed against the Chieftains. The junior chewed up Friona for 154 yards on 27 carries with three touchdowns.

Brian Marrell, Bushland, QB, Sr.

Bushland had its best offensive showing since a Week 3 win at Canadian, pouring on the points during a 73-9 blowout at Dalhart. Marrell finished the game completing 13-of-17 passes with two scores, and carried the ball eight times for 68 yards.

Irvin Torres, Muleshoe, WR, Jr.

Torres left it all on the field for Muleshoe in a thrilling 42-38 win at River Road. Torrez was a problem for the Wildcats secondary snagging 13 passes for 174 yards with a touchdown.

Beard was the catalyst for Valley’s clutch 70-68 victory at Happy that secured first place in District 1-1A Division I. The speedy back amassed 173 yards on the ground on 18 carries with three of those resulting in touchdowns. Beard also added a receiving TD.

Zander Woodward, Sanford-Fritch, RB
