Here are Week 5’s top performers:
Zach Summeier, Warren Central
The senior quarterback threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Warriors to a narrow 35-34 victory over MIC rival Ben Davis. For Summeier, who completed 21-of-33 passes despite playing with a shoulder injury, it was the first 300-yard passing game of his career. He hit four different receivers on his touchdown passes.
Bryce Jefferson, Decatur Central
The dual-threat junior quarterback posted four first-half touchdown passes and finished the game with five total, as the Hawks had a monster offensive night in a 66-21 win against Mooresville. His biggest play of the game was a 98-yard touchdown pass to Jaylen Adkins to put the Hawks ahead 21-7.
DuRon Ford, New Palestine
The senior running back rushed for 228 yards and five touchdowns on 20 carries in the Dragons’ 63-9 drubbing of Pendleton Heights. The Dragons moved to 5-0, and Ford raised his rushing touchdown total for the season to 17. Ford eclipsed 200 rushing yards for the third time this year, and he has scored three or more touchdowns in four of five games.
Al McKeller, Lawrence North
The senior running back scored three touchdowns and rushed for 180 yards on 28 carries (6.4 per carry) as the Wildcats pulled off a rare win over MIC rival Carmel. The victory was their first over the Greyhounds since 2004.
John Lux, Shelbyville
The senior quarterback accounted for six touchdowns — four through the air and two on the ground — as he led the Golden Bears (5-0) to a 52-31 win over Hoosier Heritage Conference foe Greenfield-Central. Lux — 21-of-35 for 481 yards — hit Jalaen Ramsey on three of his touchdown strikes that came from five, 21 and and 63 yards away. Lux also intercepted a pass on defense.
