Jason Burney, sr., QB, Milton Hershey: A few Spartans could get the nod after a wild 47-44 win over Lower Dauphin, but we’ll go with Burney, who was 23 of 36 for 386 yards and ran seven times for 39 yards (and an 8-yard score). His five TD passes to five different receivers covered 35, 73, 16, 73 and 12 yards. He also threw a two-point conversion.

Elias Coke, so., WR/DB, Harrisburg: Coke caught six passes for 157 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown reception, to propel the Commonwealth-leading Cougars to a 20-0 win over State College. The victory likely hands Harrisburg the division title, barring an upset.

Mateo Crummel, sr., WR, Central Dauphin: It was all air, all night in the Rams’ 48-14 rout of Altoona, and Crummel was one of those flying all over the field. The senior shredded the Mountain Lions for 188 receiving yards (plus three carries for 19 rushing) and two touchdowns, which went for 65 and 62 yards, on seven receptions.

Alex Erby, sr., QB, Steel-High: Erby broke yet another Pennsylvania high school football record. Six days after breaking the career passing yards record, he reset the passing TDs mark with his 147th career TD on a night when he threw for 435 yards and seven scores (17 of 21 passing) in a 67-12 blowout of Newport. He passed Central Martinsburg QB Jeff Hoenstine’s mark of 146 set last season.

Torin Evans, so., QB, Susquehanna Township: Evans helped ‘Hanna extend its winning streak to four, going 14 of 18 for 235 yards and three TDs to three different receivers in a 42-16 win over Northern. Evans hit Jarrett Kern (9 yards), Lex Cyrus (18) and Zikhere Leaks (84) for scores, plus punched in a 1-yard TD run of his own.

Ben Fickel, sr., WR/DB, Big Spring: The Bulldogs decided to go to the air quite a bit in a 30-13 win over Boiling Springs on Thursday night, and Fickel shined. He caught four passes for 82 yards and secured a 24-yard touchdown reception. He also had four tackles and an interception on defense and returned three kickoffs 69 yards.

Elijah Johnson, sr., RB/LB, Milton Hershey: In a 47-44 barnburner to beat Lower Dauphin, Johnson recorded 192 total yards and a pair of touchdowns. He did that with 13 carries for 119 yards on the ground, scoring from 40 yards out, and was on the receiving end of a 73-yard scoring strike.

Christian Joy, jr., RB, Trinity: With star running back Messiah Mickens again out due to injury, Joy stepped in admirably in a thrilling 14-13 win over Camp Hill that ended with Trinity stifling a late two-point conversion. Joy scored both Shamrocks TDs (28-yard reception, 4-yard run), finishing with 178 rushing yards on 28 carries and 23 receiving yards on two grabs.

Keith Oates III, sr., QB/LB, East Pennsboro: Oates got the Panthers back in the win column after a stunning loss the week before, going 17 of 24 for 228 yards and touchdown passes to Breckin Swope (28 yards) and Trey Good (30) to topple Shippensburg 34-14. The multitalented Oates also ran five times for 24 stripes.

Rhaigeon Parker, sr., WR/DB, Chambersburg: Parker made two huge plays in one of the most thrilling and tightest games of the season, a 34-33 overtime victory over CD East for the Trojans. Parker picked off Demaj Jalloh on a two-point conversion attempt in OT that denied the Panthers a win. Parker also added 3 catches for 66 yards, including a 2-yard TD before halftime.

Marcus Quaker, sr., QB, West Perry: Quaker’s accolades continued to grow Friday night in a 31-6 win over Middletown. The senior broke 5,000 career passing yards in the win, finishing with 360 total yards (233 passing, 127 rushing) and four scores. He ran two in from 6, 5 and 62 yards out and hit Ian Goodling (eight catches, 136 yards) for a 30-yard strike.

Xzavier Ramsey, sr., RB, Greencastle-Antrim: The Blue Devils bounced back after a shutout loss to beat Gettysburg 37-20 on Friday night. Ramsey was a big reason why, with 142 stripes and TD runs of 24, 6 and 3 yards on 21 carries. 

Stone Saunders, jr., QB, Bishop McDevitt: The Kentucky verbal commit lit up yet another team, this time Red Land, for 253 yards and six touchdowns in a 49-0 blowout. Saunders went 13 of 19 passing and hit Alabama commit Rico Scott seven times for 168 yards and two TDs.

Bennett Secrest, jr., QB, Cedar Cliff: The Colts stampeded Palmyra 55-18 thanks to the arm and legs of Secrest. The junior did most of his damage on the ground, rushing 14 times for a career high 144 yards and three TDs. But he was efficient through the air, finishing 10 of 15 for 111 yards and another score.

Bryce Staretz, sr., RB, Cumberland Valley: Staretz to churn out massive yardage in grinding fashion. This time he was called upon 35 times in a 30-8 rout of Carlisle on Friday, turning those opportunities into 242 yards and four touchdowns of 3, 5, 20 and 2 yards. He ran for 137 stripes in the second half.
