Rivercrest (Elijah Nichols 73 yd TD pass to Kam Turner)
Nominee number 1 is Rivercrest. It’s a Colts version of the Philly Special. After a double handoff, Elijah Nichols drops a dime to Kam Turner, it’s a 73 yard touchdown on the first play of the game. The Colts beat Westside 55-19 to move to 6-0.
Blytheville (Jeremiah Northern 24 yd TD pass to LaMont Jackson)
Nominee number 2 is Blytheville. Jeremiah Northern evades pressure and finds LaMont Jackson for a 24 yard touchdown. The Chickasaws beat DeWitt 30-6.
Batesville (Ethan Ridgel spin cycle & more for 45 yd TD)
Our third nominee is Batesville. Ethan Ridgel sheds off a defender, he’ll go spin cycle and more for a 45 yard touchdown. The Pioneers move to 3-0 in the 5A East with a 42-24 win over Forrest City.
Harrisburg (Samuel Moore TD)
Our final nominee is Harrisburg. The Hornets get tricky to end the first half, Drew Wright flips to Samuel Moore and Moore would not be denied, he’ll break tackles and find the end zone. Harrisburg beat Manila 17-2.
