Thomas Hogan, Lafayette Jeff: OK, we're stretching beyond the Indianapolis-area for this one, but check out this stat line from the Bronchos' 76-65 win over Harrison: 474 rushing yards (!) and nine (!) touchdowns, both school records.

Baron Huebler, Roncalli: Huebler rushed for 170 yards and three scores, including the game-winner with just 3:33 to play in the final period, as Roncalli edged Columbus North, 31-27.

Caleb Marcus, Brownsburg: The sophomore running back rushed for 230 yards on 21 carries and his three second-half touchdowns of 23, 57 and 43 yards proved the difference in Brownsburg's 47-29 win over rival Avon.

Nathan McCahill, Cathedral: McCahill is establishing residency in this weekly feature and was the voting winner each of the past two weeks. And he's not slowing down. He completed 25-of-37 for 360 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 48 yards and another score in the Irish's 39-20 win over Bishop Chatard. It's early, but McCahill is building a case for IndyStar Mr. Football at season's end.
