Franklin got a morale-boosting win with a 38-21 victory over Spring Hill due to a big night from its quarterback. Carter Hendry ran seven times for 69 yards and a score, and was 5-of-11 passing for 103 yards, as the Rebels knocked off the Raiders, 38-21. It’s the second win of the season for Franklin.

4. Troy Henderson, running back, Independence

Independence running back Troy Henderson scored three touchdowns and ran for 153 yards, as the Eagles cruised by Memphis East, 42-10. Quarterback Nathan Cisco was 21-of-35 for 225 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Kendrell Scurry caught seven balls for 80 yards and a score for Independence (5-4). Coming off a five-touchdown game last week, Henderson scored on a 3-yard run early to give the Eagles the game’s first lead. Gabe Thieman (three catches, 42 yards) and C.J. Hills (nine for 58) also scored touchdowns. T.J. Sheffield also caught six passes for 49 yards for Independence. Independence ends the regular season by hosting Ravenwood next week.

Straight off being named our Offensive Player of the Week last week, Henderson brought it again in Week 10. The Eagles’ running back carried 12 times for 189 yards and three scores, as Independence routed Memphis East, 42-10.

3. Seamus O’Connell, quarterback, Father Ryan

2. Gavin Schoenwald, quarterback, Brentwood Academy

Vandy Commits Get it Done for Brentwood Academy in Week 6

Schoenwald helped Brentwood Academy build a stunning 29-0 halftime lead at Montgomery Bell Academy, and the Eagles cruised from there. The senior Vanderbilt commitment was 14-of-17 passing for 154 yards, three touchdowns and no picks, and ran 13 times for 38 yards. The Eagles remain unbeaten this season.

1. Austin Amor, quarterback, Grace Christian Academy

HS Football Week 12: Williamson County Offensive Player of the Week

It would be difficult to contribute more to a win than Amor did in GCA’s 48-45 win over Mt. Pleasant last Friday. The quarterback completed 19-of-25 passes for 282 yards, four touchdowns and one interception, and added 18 rushes for 135 yards and three scores. For good measure, he added two solo stops on defense. Grace Christian evened its record at 4-4.
