We are now looking to go with one player per school or game, instead of going the multiple player route and that way we can fine tune the choices, as this season is turning into a fast football finish….

We are looking at least three players in contention this week with Orlando Hatfield from Page, Reid Baxter from Northwest Guilford and Jamil Lee from Eastern Guilford…..You can cast your vote for one of these players at……

Hatfield, the wide receiver for the Page Pirates, had 5 receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the Pirates’ 21-12 win over the Dudley Panthers….Hatfield had two long TD catches and just about all of his damage came in the first quarter, of last week’s game….

Baxter, from NWG, had three TD’s and all three of the scores came on runs by the sophomore….He ended up with 150 yards on the ground and he had a long TD run of 60 yards…Baxter also had 3 recepts for 22 yards and two kickoff returns for 92 yards to give him 264 total yards from scrimmage….

Jamil Lee broke loose for 252 yards on 27 carries and produced three ground scores for the Eastern Guilford Wildcats and he had a long run of 41 yards…..

Also on up in here on the Check List already are Mark Johnson, from High Point Andrews with 104 yards on 6 receptions and 2 touchdown catches last week for the Red Raiders….Mike Fields of Southeast Guilford hits the Check List again, with 166 yards on 18 carries and 4 TD’s in the Falcons win over Western Guilford….Johnny King from Northeast Guilford gets in with 125 yards rushing and 2 TD’s in the Rams’ win over North Forsyth….

High Point Central’s young runningback Rakeem Grimes had some good times, last Friday night as the Bison back went for 126 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown….For the Southern Guilford Storm, it was quarterback Jamie Cunningham again, as the junior signal-caller threw for 208 yards on 11-16 passing and he had two TD passes and scored 2 TD’s rushing….

We’ve got no nunbers on Northern Guilford this week, so nothing to go on there and we did not see any numbers on several other schools as well……

Take a close look at Hatfield, Baxter and Lee this week and see what you think and let me know at……..POW….Player of the Week and later on this season, Player of the Year honors coming up…….
