Chef of the Week
In sports the term “cookin” is reserved for a player who goes on a scoring spree or gets hot during a game and makes big plays on the offensive end.
This week’s “Chef of the Week” award goes to Chandler (Chandler, Ariz.) quarterback Mason Moran for his 375-yard, three-touchdown performance in a 47-14 win over Mountain View (Mesa, Ariz.).
Moran has been dominant all season since star running back Chase Lucas went down with an injury.
A true chef indeed.
Smackdown of the Week
This award is reserved for the player who managed to unleash an eyebrow-raising, cringe-worthy, must-rewind blow that prompted a thunderous “ooh” from the fans in the stands.
This week’s “Smackdown of the Week” winner is Travis (Austin, Texas) wide receiver Boris Vindou for the blood-curling hit he delivered in a recent game against Bastrop (Bastrop, Texas).
Travis completed a pass then fumbled and a Bastrop player sped up the right sideline for what looked like a score.
All of a sudden, Vindou rocketed in from the side and delivered a vicious blow that, literally, knocks the Bastrop player horizontal and made him fumble.
The best part?
Vindou recovered the fumble.
Check out what could be the hit of the early season below.
Oh No They Didn’t!
This award is reserved for the player who turned in a mind-boggling performance or play that left the crowd in a state of shock and amazement.
This week’s “Oh No They Didn’t” winner is Fairmont Senior (Fairmont, W.Va.) running back Bryson Gilbert for integrating his track & field skills during a recent win over North Marion (Fairmont, W.Va.).
Gilbert took off out of the backfield and when the first Huskies defender lunged at him, Gilbert leaped straight over the top of him.
Then, just before he reached the end zone, Gilbert did it again.
Two hurdles on one run and a score?
Oh yes he did.
