Jeannette, sr., WR/DB/K
Cunningham (6-3, 165) booted two field goals, caught a 20-yard TD pass and finished with four catches for 74 yards in helping the Jayhawks hold off Imani on Saturday. He has a team-high 10 catches for 153 yards.
Derry, Jr., FB/LB
The junior hasn’t shined on offense yet, mainly because Trojans have numerous running options. But has made an impact on defense. DeLuca (6-4, 196) had two sacks, forced a fumble, recovered two fumbles and raced 21 yards for a score in a win over South Park.
Franklin Regional, sr., K/P
Not only did DiFalco (5-10, 189) kick the winning 20-yard FG to defeat Armstrong last week, his punting has been an asset. He fielded a low snap and while running got off a 43-yard punt that led to a safety.
Norwin, so., QB
The sophomore completed 10 of 20 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Canon-McMillan last week: 15 yards to Billy Kerston and 35 yards to Gianni Rizzo. Salopek (6-2, 170) has completed 58 of 111 passes for 930 yards and five touchdowns.
