From Oct. 1 - Oct. 6
Jordan Chapel (QND) -- In the romp over Peoria Manual, the defensive safety did something special. On the night he returned an interception 46 yards for a score, scored on a 65-yard punt return, and topped it off with a 77-yard kickoff return for a score in the third quarter.
Lucy Clark (QND) -- At the regional on Wednesday, the Lady Raiders golfer claimed medalist honors with a 79 while also leading the team to a top finish as well.
Donovan Edwards (Knox County) -- When you average slightly over 18 yards per carry and do so just 11 times, the night was a good night. The back finished with 202 total yards rushing against Scotland County while reaching paydirt twice.
Kadi Fauble (QHS) -- Every year she has gone to the Western Big Six meet, she has walked away with a title at the No. 1 singles. This past weekend made it four straight for the senior with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Rock Island's Nicole Tyulpa, whom she had lost to earlier in the year.
Devin Guedhaus (Knox County) -- On Saturday in the district title game, a two-run bomb by Guedhaus extended the lead and eventually was enough to give the Lady Eagles their first title since 1983.
India Green (QHS) -- The setter received high praise all day Saturday which culminated in her taking home the QHS Invitational MVP and the Blue Devils taking home the team title by beating Jacksonville.
Lincoln Jones (Clark County) -- Being part of the team that ended Centralia's 70-game regular season win streak is one thing. Catching the game-winning touchdown with eight minutes remaining is another. Jones not only played well on offense, but the senior also had an interception for the Indians defense, which held Centralia to a mere 15 points.
Jordan Osborne (QHS) -- On the road and needing a crucial win, the Blue Devils gave the ball to the junior back a mere eight times and he didn't disappoint, scoring four of those times and racking up 180 yards rushing against East Moline.
Trace Windsor (South Shelby) -- The back's three TDs in the second half pushed the Cardinals to the win at home versus Highland. He finished with 224 yards rushing on 33 carries.
