San Antonio running backs huge in Week 2

Drew Allen had a big night in an Alamo Heights win

Running backs had huge nights all over the greater San Antonio area in Week 2. There were however some huge efforts from quarterbacks and a defensive effort that is certainly eye-catching.

SAN ANTONIO SUPER STUD OF THE WEEK: Jock Tilghman, RB, San Antonio Clark
Just one week after Madison's Aaron Green had a banner day, Tilghman had a day to remember against Brandeis. Against the Broncos Tilghman scored all but one touchdown for the Cougars in a 49-7 romp. Tilghman's six touchdown went along with an impressive 266 yard showing on 24 carries to lead Clark to a big district opening win.

Jeff's SUPER SEVEN Performances from Week 2

Drew Allen, QB, Alamo Heights
The Oklahoma commit had his breakout game of the young season in leading the Mules to 52-30 victory over Laredo United. Allen threw for six touchdowns on a night in which he went 23-for-32 through the air for 362 yards.

DeAndre Mathis, RB, Southside
Mathis only got six carries against Jefferson but he made them count ripping off three touchdown runs and racking up 166 yards in the process while helping the Cardinals to a resounding 49-7 victory.

Chris Johnson, RB, East Central
The Hornets are off to a tough start thus far in 2008, but Johnson has been a bright spot. The junior ball carrier had a big night as he and the Hornets came out on the short end of a 37-30 decision to Seguin as Johnson rushed for 203 yards and two touchdowns on the night.

Tim Contreras, RB, Edison
One of the city's top defensive backs as a junior, Edison made his mark on offense as the Golden Bears rolled to a 55-21 win over Kyle Lehman. Contreras rushed for 188 yards on just eight carries and scored three touchdown runs of 47, 35 and 59 yards.

Kevin Gray, RB, Blanco
The Week 2 theme in San Antonio seemed to be ball carriers having big rushing nights despite a low number of carries, and Gray certainly meets the criteria with his effort in a 55-0 win over Florence. Gray torched the Buffaloes for 196 yards on six carries and scored three touchdowns as the Panthers continue to roll.

Devin Haywood, QB, Roosevelt
After a slow start the Rough Riders got rolling in their district opener thanks to Haywood. He paced the Roosevelt offense in a 52-7 drubbing of Churchill with 240 yards and three touchdowns on just 8-of-11 passing.

The Center Point Defense
The Class A Pirates had big night offensively, which is an understatement considering that they beat Brooks Academy 60-0, but their defense put up what will go down as one of the top efforts of the season in the area. The Pirates held the Bengals to minus-31 yards of total offense, all of which were negatively gained on 31 running plays, and did not allow a completion all night.

HONORABLE MENTION: Center Point QB David Garcia; Bandera QB Cole Hubble, WR Cole Hicks and RB Clayton Maples; Boerne Champion RB Josh Wray; Harper RB's Reagan Randle and Colton Pepper; St. Anthony WR Garrett Putnam; San Antonio Christian QB Wilson Vick and WR Cheston Goudge; Roosevelt WR Edwin Richardson; Geronimo Navarro RB Jacob Garcia; Kennedy RB Michael Perez; and Pearsall QB Nathan Valle.
