Week 2 High School Players of the Week

By

Joc Bruce dazzled once again in South Doyle’s win over Jefferson County. The Vols’ commit totaled 294 yards for two rushing touchdowns and one receiving, but he understands that because of his success on the field, teams are locked in on him.

“It’s harder for me my senior year. I thought it’d be easier, but teams are trying to stop me, but they’re really hurting themselves. We have great receivers, running backs, and we have one of the best quarterbacks in the league,” said Bruce.

But the Patriots couldn’t stop him and he made them pay all night in a 41-14 blowout. His Cherokees go on the road to face Hardin Valley on Friday.

For the second consecutive week, a Morristown West player has won Defensive Player of the Week.

Calvin Smith totaled seven tackles, two interceptions, one which he returned for a touchdown, and a fumble recovered for a score. He says the Trojans have come a long way from a season ago, especially defensively.

“Last year, we struggled, so we said this year that we would set the tempo week in and week out, and that’s what we’ve done so far,” said Smith.

The Trojans have vastly improved this season, having started the year 3-0. This weekend, they’re headed to Johnson City to face Science Hill.

Calvin Smith and Joc Bruce are the Players of the Week for Week 3.
