With Week 7 of the high school football season in the books, here are some of the top performers from this week’s action:
Jack Sompayrac, Catholic
The senior quarterback commanded an offense that scored on each of its first seven drives en route to a 49-24 victory over Rhea County on Thursday. Sompayrac was efficient in the pocket, completing 13 of his 16 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns, and dangerous outside of it, rushing for 112 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.
Ryan Moog, Anderson County
Anderson County’s defense set the tone for a 49-7 rout over Region 2-4A foe East Ridge on Friday, recovering a pair of fumbles deep inside Pioneer territory that allowed the Mavericks to score a trio of touchdowns in the game’s first three minutes, 30 seconds. Moog played a part in both, forcing one and falling on the other in the end zone to give Anderson County a 21-0 lead. He also hauled in three catches for 35 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown.
Kameron Johnson, Heritage
Johnson was the primary target for senior quarterback DJ Cooper with junior Max Bowers sidelined due to a broken leg, according to Lauren Moore of The Daily Times. The sophomore reeled in five catches for 146 yards and three touchdowns.
Kyle Carter, Farragut
The Admirals ran all over Science Hill to extended their winning streak to 19 games, rushing for 300 yards in their 35-27 win. The junior shouldered most of that attack, carrying the ball 26 times for 169 yards and a trio of touchdowns.
Isaiah Gibbs, Farragut
Gibbs played Robin to Carter’s Batman in Farragut’s backfield, but a sidekick is still a superhero. The junior rushed for 147 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in the Admirals’ victory.
Tyler Dutton, Lenoir City
The senior rushed for 166 yards, including a 99-yard touchdown, on six carries, while also adding 76 yards and a touchdown on four catches in Lenoir City’s 35-28 victory over Happy Valley.
Cody Wyllins, The King’s Academy
Wyllins tallied yet another triple-digit rushing performance, and this time he did so in just one quarter of action. The senior racked up 105 yards and the first four touchdowns of the game on eight carries to help The King’s Academy beat Concord Christian, 54-9.
Dashon Bussell, Catholic
The 15th-ranked player in the state of Tennessee for the Class of 2018 continues to make an impact for the Fighting Irish. He hauled in five catches for 98 yards and a touchdown, which came on the first possession of the game. He also helped break the game open with a 90-yard kick return score in the final seconds of the first half.
Luke Kirby, Grace Christian Academy
One week after upsetting Greenback, the Rams pulled off another signature victory, downing Happy Valley, 27-19, for Rusty Bradley’s 100th career win. Last week featured a run-based attack, but Friday was a return to the norm, as Luke Kirby tossed 36 passes, completing 22 of them, for 269 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Stanton Martin, Anderson County
It may not have been one of Martin’s more standout performances, but he was still fantastic. He tallied 144 yards and four touchdowns through the air on 14-of-20 passing while playing just seven possessions, three of which started in East Ridge territory.
Dorian Williamson, Fulton
The senior registered three different varieties of touchdown in Fulton’s 47-11 victory over Carter, scoring on an 11-yard run, a 46-yard reception and a 47-yard punt return.
