Week 6 of the high school football season was one for the running backs, as a handful of ball carries put forth big outings to make this list. The tailbacks, however, were not the only position to light up the scoreboard.
Here are some of the top performers from this week’s action:
Isaiah Cobb, Maryville
Cobb is capable of completely taking over a game with his hard-nosed running style, and he did on Friday to help Maryville down Fulton, 41-12. The senior tallied 186 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries, while also adding 34 yards on two catches to make this list for the second time this season.
Stanton Martin, Anderson County
The junior quarterback is orchestrating a well-oiled offensive machine for the Mavericks. Anderson County entered Friday averaging 51.8 points per game and managed to top that in a 56-17 victory over Heritage. Martin completed 20 of his 29 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns. He also added another score on the ground while rushing for 63 carries on seven carries.
Alex Williams, Farragut
The Admirals offense could not get anything going against a stifling West defense, but Alex Williams picked them up, registering a pair of pick-6s, one that went for 35 yards and another for 49, to extend Farragut’s winning streak to 18 games with a 14-9 win over the Rebels.
Collin Ironside, Bearden
The sophomore quarterback turned in the best start of his young career, going 13-for-19 for 220 yards four touchdown passes in the Bulldog’s 48-10 win over CAK.
Cody Estep, Grace Christian
Rusty Bradley’s teams are known for being pass-happy, but Estep has made an impact this season. He carried the offense Friday against Greenback, carrying the ball a season-high 26 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-7 victory.
Trey Mullins, Gibbs
The triple option was successful against Morristown East and Trey Mullins had a lot to do with that, running for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in the Eagles’ 42-28 win.
Isaac Scarbrough, Carter
Scarbrough came through for the Hornets on both sides of the ball during their 28-21 victory over South-Doyle, racking up 89 yards and two touchdowns on offense and eight tackles and two pass break-ups on defense.
Ton’Quez Ball, South-Doyle
Ball proved once again why he is one of the top playmakers in the Cherokees offense, posting 87 yards and a pair of touchdowns on five receptions.
Ryan Medders, Grace Christian
Medders was the main cog in a Rams’ defense that stifled Greenback’s offense and limited them to seven points. The senior tallied nine tackles, four for loss, one sack and two quarterback hurries.
