Here are our picks for Williamson County Offensive Players of the Week.
5. Nick Stallcup, running back, Ravenwood
The converted quarterback had a huge night in Ravenwood’s 46-21 victory over Page. Stallcup ran 16 times for 163 yards and scored a touchdown, caught a pass for 15 yards and also heaved a 36-yard score.
4. Eric Stoxstill-Diggs, quarterback, Franklin Road Academy
The FRA quarterback has had a great season as a dual-threat quarterback for the Panthers. In Friday’s 35-32 win over Donelson Christian Academy, Stoxstill-Diggs hit 11-of-26 throws for two touchdowns, and ran 16 times for 170 and two more scores. Big players come up big when the game’s on the line, and he did it twice. First, he accounted for the winning score on a 10-yard run with 9:36 left. Finally, with FRA nursing a 3-point lead, Stoxstill-Diggs escaped a sack with less than a minute to go on a fourth-down conversion, helping the Panthers ice the win. Here’s a look at his highlights from Friday’s game.
3. Darius James, running back, Fairview
James has made a huge impact since transferring from Sycamore this summer. In Friday’s 50-49 loss to Waverly, James ran for 210 yards and scored three times. Check out video highlights of his evening.
2. Keshawn Lawrence, running back, Ensworth
Lawrence and Nicky Clifton form one of the Midstate’s better running back duos, and Lawrence’s big game was a reason Ensworth got a big 35-21 road win at Baylor. The sophomore had another big day with 15 carries for 156 yards and four touchdowns, and you can see his highlights from that contest here.
1. Nathan Cisco, quarterback, Independence
Independence got a much-needed 49-21 win over Hillsboro thanks to a huge night from quarterback Nathan Cisco. The junior completed 19-of-22 passes for 350 yards and five touchdowns, and added seven yards on three carries. Here are his video highlights from that game.
