Week 2 of the high school provided some huge stat lines across the area. Two athletes make this list for the second consecutive week, while five others put up big numbers to help their teams win. Without further ado, here are the top performers from this week:
Stanton Martin, Anderson County
Martin earns a spot on the top performer list for the second consecutive week after he completed 22 of his 32 passes for 396 yards and seven touchdowns to lead the Mavericks to a 56-16 victory over William Blount. Last week, he threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns, while tacking on 193 yards and two more scores against Carter.
Bryce Hanley, Greenback
The Cherokees faced a lot of questions heading into the season after losing the main cogs of their offense in Division-I prospects Kayne Roberts (North Carolina, running back) and Hunter Willis (Tennessee Tech, quarterback). Hanley eased some of those doubts Friday, throwing for 301 yards and five touchdowns on 9-for-13 passing, while also rushing for 88 yards in Greenback’s 42-7 victory over Christian Academy of Knoxville.
Kyle Carter, Farragut
The junior running back ripped off big run after big run against McMinn County, racking up 152 yards and three touchdowns on just six carries to push Farragut to a 34-14 win. Carter’s touchdown runs consisted of a 78-yard score, one of 55 yards and the other a two-yard scamper.
Joshua Brown, Catholic
Brown joins this list once again after carrying the ball 24 times for 178 yards and three touchdowns to help Catholic down Chattanooga Baylor, 56-24. In two games, he has rushed for 300 yards and six touchdowns.
Jacob Bunch, Grainger
The senior running back had his fingerprints all over the Grizzlies’ 34-28 victory over Pigeon Forge, accounting for 23 of Grainger’s points. Bunch did his primary objective, carrying the ball 29 times for 306 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw for a touchdown and converted a 2-point conversion.
Dalton Wilson, Anderson County
The sophomore took full advantage of Martin’s stellar night, torching William Blount multiple times en route to a seven-catch, 202-yard performance that included five touchdowns.
Walker Trusley, Powell
The sophomore quarterback fired the football all over Cumberland County, gaining 300 yards through the air on 17-for-22 passing. Trusley’s four touchdown throws propelled the Panthers to a 42-13 victory over the Jets.
