In no particular order:
- Nathan Quattlebaum (RB, Bruceville-Eddy): Our first featured back made life look easy on the ground, running all over Axtell Friday night. Quattlebaum carried the ball 27 times for five touchdowns in the Eagles dominant win over the Longhorns.
- Zach Hrbacek (RB, Troy): Our second nominee came up big in a big game Friday night. Hrbacek muscled his way to 238 yards and four touchdowns against the stout Cameron Yoe defense. He helped lead the Trojans to a huge 59-41 win over the third-ranked Yoemen.
- Emmanuel Abdallah (RB, China Spring): Our final nominee broke records Friday night. Abdallah ran for a Central Texas record 554 yards Friday night against Argyle Liberty Christian. He scored five touchdowns from 88, 51, 82, 92, and eight yards. The dominant performance was wasted though, as the Cougars lost a high-scoring affair, 58-56.
! Voting closes Wednesday and the KXXV sports team will surprise the winner at their pep rally on Friday.
