Chef of the Week

In sports the term “cookin'” is reserved for a player who goes on a scoring spree or gets hot during a game and makes big plays on the offensive end.

This week’s Chef of the Week award goes to Logan (Logan, Utah) quarterback Chase Nelson for the 441 yards and five touchdowns passing and 250 yards and two touchdowns rushing he posted in Logan’s 49-38 win over Roy (Roy, Utah) Friday.

Nelson’s total of 691 yards surpassed the old state record of 606, set by older brother DJ, now a player at Utah State.

Smackdown of the Week

This award is reserved for the player who managed to unleash an eyebrow-raising, cringe-worthy, must-rewind blow that prompted a thunderous “ooh” from the fans in the stands.

This week’s “Smackdown of the Week” winner is Valley’s (Kensington, Pa.) D’Aundre Johnson for the uber-vicious crack-back block he put on Burrell’s (Lower Burrell, Pa.) Andrew Smith.

Smith was closing in on a tackle after a nearly 40-yard gain by the Valley running back when Johnson came out of nowhere and leveled Smith on the sideline.

The hit was so hard that the crowd got more excited about it than the run.

Valley went on to win 26-0.

Oh No They Didn’t!

This award is reserved for the player who turned in a mind-boggling performance or play that left the crowd in a state of shock and amazement.

This week’s “Oh No They Didn’t” winner is University Lab (Baton Rouge, La.) freshman linebacker/running back Dylan Moses for committing to LSU.

No, really he’s a freshman.

Committing to a school four years before you can sign a National Letter of Intent?

Oh yes he did.
