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 St. Mary’s Springs (Fond du Lac, Wis.) field goal kicker Zach Hintze for nailing a 61-yard field goal during a recent game and breaking a Wisconsin state record in the process.
Yes, that’s 61 yards.
Take a second and think about the last college or NFL game that you saw a kicker nail a 61-yarder.
Checkout the video below.
POSTER OF THE WEEK
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, N.C.) Harry Giles III for the poster he created in his season opener.
Giles simply rose up over a defender with one hand and threw down a strong dunk on top of him. The momentum of the vicious poster coupled with a slight shove by the, obviously frustrated, defender sent Giles falling backward onto the hardwood; a small price to pay for the ultimate highlight.
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 Dunham (Baton Rouge, La.) receiver Joshua Matthews for snagging an unreal Hail Mary catch between eight defenders.
Dunham was trailing 24-20 with mere seconds left on the clock when quarterback Jyron Walker dropped back and launched the ball toward a crowd in the end zone.
As the ball approached the entire crowd seemed to jump up in unison, but Matthews came down with the prize.
And, yes, chaos ensued.
