Beau Buchanan, Bowling Green (4-0, ranked #2 in 5A)
Week 3: 19 of 29 for 198 yards and a TD in a 21-12 win over Owensboro
Season to date: 81 of 138 for 978 yards with 4 TDs and 2 int.
Another solid, but hardly spectacular outing from Buchanan versus Owensboro. Four games in, he's still searching for an attention grabbing type of performance. But the Purples are 4-0 with a win over St. X, so you're not likely to hear many concerns coming from BG's camp.
Week 3: 7 of 14 for 82 yards and a TD ; 10 rushes for 149 yards and 2 TDs in a 41-0 win over Russell
Season to date: 35 of 60 for 760 yards and 9 TDs with 2 ints. ; 32 rushes for 363 yards and 4 TDs
Ratliff's legs outperformed his arm for the second straight game. That could be the case more often than not from here on out with the continued emergence of Ashland's running game and a significant injury to the Tomcats’ biggest deep threat in the passing game.
Week 3: 17 of 25 for 228 yards with a TD and 2 ints. ; 16 rushes for 56 yards and 3 TDs in a 21-14 win over Beechwood
Season to date: 51 of 81 for 991 yards with 10 TDs and 3 ints. ; 44 rushes for 302 yards and 6 TDs
The numbers dropped a tad, but that's largely because the level of opposition went up. The Redhounds have a bye this week before Estep has another potential showcase game versus Mayfield.
Cameron Jones, Frederick Douglass (4-0, ranked #5 in 6A)
Week 3: 12 of 17 for 214 yards with 2 TDs and 3 ints. in a 43-0 win over Lafayette
Season to date: 55 of 70 for 1,025 yards with 14 TDs and 3 ints.
Stock : <>
Jones threw his first three interceptions of the year in an otherwise solid showing against Lafayette. This week against Madison Central, he'll face a pass defense that's only giving up 67 yards per game through the air. Then it's cruise control for two weeks before a massive showdown with Scott County.
Wandale Robinson, Western Hills (2-1, ranked #10 in 3A)
Week 3: 15 rushes for 248 yards and 2 TDs in a 20-0 win over Bath County
Season to date: 49 rushes for 571 yards and 6 TDs ; 4 catches for 196 yards and 3 TDs ; 1 punt return TD
The fleet footed Robinson's night against Bath County was highlighted by 88 and 77 yard touchdown runs. He also pitched in 12 tackles on defense. If you want an idea as to how difficult it is to corral Wandale, watch the first run in the Hudl video linked below. The play only results in an 8 or 9 yard gain, but they're about as adventurous an 8 or 9 yards as you'll see all season.
Week 3: 13 carries for 165 yards and 2 TDs in a 31-0 win over Western
Season to date: 49 rushes for 277 yards and 6 TDs
Robbins finally had the breakthrough game he'd been waiting for this season after being bottled up against Central and Fern Creek .
Jayden Neace, Perry County Central (4-0, unranked in 5A)
Week 3: 21 rushes for 221 yards and 3 TDs in a 41-14 win over Clay County
Season to date: 88 carries for 1,091 yards and 17 TDs
With his third straight 200+ yard performance, Neace became the first running back in the state to crack the 1,000 yard plateau this season. It's a safe bet that he'll continue this pace in the weeks to come.
Week 3: The Scotties rushed for 389 yards and 4 TDs in a 28-7 win over Allen County-Scottsville
Glasgow, and running back Nick Mitchell in particular, had a field day churning out rushing yardage versus previously unbeaten ACS. The video linked below is for Nick Mitchell, but it does a great job of representing the level of domination that Bowles provides at left tackle.
Week 3: 9 carries for 25 yards ; 3 catches for 42 yards and a TD in a 21-14 loss to Corbin
Season to date: 28 carries for 271 yards and 4 TDs
Castleman struggled to find running lanes against a stout Corbin defense, but still made an impact catching the ball. Like any great player, he found a way to help his team when Plan A wasn't working.
Drew Sawyers, Southwestern (4-0, ranked #5 in 5A)
Week 3: 7 of 8 for 58 yards ; 17 rushes for 102 yards and a TD ; an interception ; kickoff return TD in a 31-24 win over Henry Clay
Season to date: 25 of 40 for 355 yards and 2 TDs ; 49 rushes for 377 yards and 3 TDs ; 1 interception ; 3 kickoff return TDs
It's time to give this young man some attention. He both rushed and passed for 1,000+ yards each last year, accounted for 25 total TDs (passing, rushing, receiving, interception return, kick return), and led the Warriors in interceptions. He's a true Iron Man player who seldom comes off the field.
