ATH Cortez Paige, Langham Creek 
Paige was a serious playmaker in the Lobos 44-20 win over Mayde Creek. He two catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, he had an interception and on special team he returned the opening kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown. Langham Creek is on a roll with a 2-0 record right now.

QB Kolby Gray, Cy Falls
Though he played only two quarters, Gray showed his leadership in Cy Falls' 47-45 victory over state ranked Westfield. Gray was 9-of-16 for 107 yards and two passing touchdowns. He added another score on a 1-yard run. These statistics may not be eye-popping, but his presence appeared to be felt by his teammates.

DE David King, Strake Jesuit 
King, an Oklahoma commit, is the Crusader's defensive leader and he showed exactly that in a 24-10 win over Baytown Lee. He recorded seven tackles, a forced fumble, and a pass deflection that led to a Strake Jesuit touchdown. King also intercepted a pass to seal the victory for his team.

RB Wesley Cobb, Cy Fair
For the second week in a row, Cobb was the Bobcats workhorse. He gained 196 yards on 37 carries and a score in 17-6 win over Klein Collins. Cobb still proves that he can hold down the ground game in Sam McGuffie's absence.

RB Hasan Lipscomb, Cy Ridge
Lipscomb was the leader for the Rams team against Klein. He had 123 yards on 13 carries in a 10-7 loss. Lipscomb is a player to watch for from the Class of 2009. Recommended Stories
