Week 1 of the high school football season is in the books. Here are the top performers from this week’s action:

Isaiah Cobb, Maryville

When it mattered most, Cobb showed up for the Rebels. The senior amassed 107 yards and four touchdowns on 19 carries, with three of those touchdowns coming in the second half of Maryville’s 49-42 victory over Catholic. His final score, a one-yard scamper with 1:29 remaining, proved to be the game-winner.

Stanton Martin, Anderson County

The junior quarterback threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns, while tacking on 193 yards and two more scores in the Mavericks’ 55-27 rout of Carter on Thursday.

DaShon Bussell, Catholic

In his first outing as a member of the Fighting Irish — Bussell transferred from Indiana during the offseason — the senior put on a show. The 17th-ranked player in the state of Tennessee, according to 247Sports.com, tallied 231 yards from scrimmage (86 receiving, 145 rushing) and three total touchdowns — all of which came on plays 57 yards or longer.

Jacob Warren, Farragut

The Tennessee commit provided all the offense for the Admirals as they began their run toward a second-straight state championship against Bradley Central. Warren hauled in four touchdowns, including the game-winner in the 27-21 overtime victory.

Cody Wyllins, The King’s Academy

The senior had an impact in all three phases of the game during the Lions’ 28-0 victory over Silverdale. He rushed for 125 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries, returned a punt for another score and registered an interception.

Dakota Fawver, Central

The sophomore quarterback completed 13 of his 19 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown while also adding 126 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in the Bobcats’ 33-19 victory over Tennessee.

Joshua Brown, Catholic

Brown was a workhorse for the Fighting Irish, carrying the ball 19 times for 122 yards and three touchdowns in their loss to Maryville.
