  1. Jamir Reynolds-Vasquez, RB, Cedar Cliff: Impressive performance with a game-high 105 rushing yards on 21 carries and a touchdown in a 40-28 loss to Bishop McDevitt. Ran almost exclusively between the tackles and picked up a ton of yards after contact against a physical Crusaders defense.
  2. Omari Hopkins, WR-KR, Bishop McDevitt: The senior finished with 171 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns in a 40-28 victory over Cedar Cliff. He caught five passes for 91 yards and a touchdown from his wideout spot, and kicked off the scoring with an electric 80-yard punt return for a score in the first quarter.
  3. Micah Brubaker, QB, Mechanicsburg: A pair of Wildcats make this list, and for good reason. Brubaker had a career day on the ground, rushing 15 times for a whopping 223 yards, a career high by almost a football field’s length. Scored thrice from 8, 60 and 72 yards, and completed 6-of-9 passes for 29 yards in a 48-0 win over Greencastle.
  4. Lek Powell, QB, Bishop McDevittl: The senior finished with 330 yards through the air with five touchdowns and that’s not really the story. It was the third quarter where he went 9-of-12 for 207 yards and four touchdowns to spark the Crusaders past Cedar Cliff.
  5. Jaydan Barrick, TE-MLB, Boiling Springs: A pick-6 and a blocked-punt return for a score land Barrick on this list. Bubblers fans have lots to be happy about right now. Barrick’s defensive score, which covered 16 yards, and special teams TD, which covered 7, have Bubbletown 3-0 and one of the darlings of the 2020 season.
  6. Yaniel Ortiz, WB-DB, Juniata: The Indians’ diminutive two-way back flashed his clutch gene several times with the result still in doubt, collecting a 9-yard scoring pass with 1:18 remaining in regulation to force OT against Lower Dauphin and then authoring a 10-yard sack on third down that greatly helped Juniata preserve a 21-14 win. Ortiz finished with 68 yards rushing on 7 carries — his touchdown had Juniata up early — and caught 6 passes for 43 yards and his aforementioned TD. Also recorded six stops.
  7. Kiev Gregg, RB, Harrisburg: A Cougar needs to be mentioned this week after they blitzed Berks Catholic 62-28 in the Cougars’ first game of the season. Gregg gets the nod, but count this as a hat tip to the dominant o-line as well. Gregg ran seven times for 112 stripes, scoring on runs of 8, 37 and 20 yards. 
  8. Ethan Stroup, FB, Altoona: A bring-your-lunchpail performance for Stroup, who toted the rock 41 times for 232 yards and two scores as the Mountain Lions trampled Chambersburg 42-28. It was the second straight week the Trojans were run through. Stroup’s TDs came on runs of 10 and 18 yards.
  9. Chance Crawford, RB-DB, Upper Dauphin: Big two-way night for Crawford, who scored one TD rushing and another with a 98-yard scoop-and-score fumble recovery. Crawford only carried the ball 11 times, for 89 yards and a touchdown, but UDA put away Susquenita 48-31. Also added a 16-yard reception, 79 yards on punt and kickoff returns and rang up three two-point conversions.
  10. Davey Loyd, WR, Hershey: Three of his four receptions led to trips to the end zone, a mighty efficient night. Loyd scored on passes from Jackson Bouslough (8-of-9, 176 yards) that went for 35, 10 and 21 yards, finishing with 140 yards in a 40-6 win over Palmyra.
  11. Chase Herb, RB-DE, Tri-Valley: Averaging nearly 10 yards per pop, Herb rolled up 215 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries as the Bulldogs tamed Mahanoy Area 40-7 in Schuylkill 2 play. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder’s three touchdowns covered 9, 38 and 9 yards as Jeff Sampson’s club took command early. Herb also totaled six stops.
  12. Garret Laudenslager, RB-OLB, Line Mountain: Fourth Down’s reigning Player of the Week, Laudenslager continued to rack up sparkling numbers as he rushed for 141 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 carries in the Eagles’ 48-21 thumping of Mid-Penn Liberty playmate Halifax. Laudenslager scored on runs of 46, 4 and 31 yards, thrilling the Senior Night gathering at the Mountain’s Glenn Ressler Field.
  13. Ryan Stahl, WR-DB, Halifax: Stahl performed wonderfully in the Wildcats’ 48-21 setback at Mid-Penn Liberty rival Line Mountain, catching 10 passes for 158 yards and three TDs. Stahl’s first score came late in the first half when he grabbed a 14-yard scoring pass, but he later added touchdown receptions of 37 and 10 yards.
  14. Bryce Herb, QB-DB, Williams Valley: Herb enjoyed a marvelous night throwing the ball, completing 12 of his 20 attempts for 308 yards and five touchdowns as Williams Valley chewed up Panther Valley 49-20. As a result, the 6-1 senior moved into first place on the Vikings’ career touchdown passes list with 57, surpassing the 53 put up by predecessor Levi Engle. Herb also rushed three times for 40 yards and another score.
  15. Jesse Engle, TE-ILB, Williams Valley: Engle continued his remarkable play, catching seven passes for 142 yards and three touchdowns in a 49-20 romp over Panther Valley. Engle also moved into first place on the Vikings’ career touchdown receptions chart with 33 scores, two better than the number totaled by Jake Wolfgang. Engle also enjoyed another banner night defensively, accumulating 12 tackles from his inside backer spot.
