Top Performers: Week 3
It's time for another dose of your weekly football standouts: Top Performers. It was a great weekend for Loudoun teams as they went 7-2 and there were several impressive individual efforts in those contests. Here are some of the highlights...
QB: Austin Campbell, Loudoun County - Obtained by some nifty arithmetic, here are the senior signal-callers huge Week 3 numbers: 12-15, 201 yds, 3 TDs; 2 carries, -10 yds, TD. After a shaky performance in Week 1, it looks like he's found his footing under center for the Raiders.
RB: Marcus Harris, Stone Bridge - The junior tailback simply took over the game with the Bulldogs trailing Heritage 8-0. in the second quarter, amassing 26 carries for 132 yds and 3 TDs with a 20-yard catch to boot as Stone Bridge escaped Leesburg with a win.
WR: Garret Kranias, Loudoun Valley - The big junior receiver was a reliable target for QB Andrew Taylor all night, catching five balls for 106 yards (including three first downs) and the breaking two tackles on the game-winning, 55-yard touchdown reception.
PK: Calle Brown, Loudoun County - After going 5-for-5 on extra points with a 33-yard field goal in Week 1, Brown remained perfect with a 6-for-6 performance on point after attempts against Warren County.
O-Line: Stone Bridge - The big Bulldogs up front did their job, freeing Harris and the rest of the team's rushers for 245 yards and three scores on 48 carries (a 5.1 yards per carry clip).
Defense: Freedom - The Eagles gave up only 3.7 yards per carry, a measly 61-yards through the air and a single touchdown as they held Brentsville to six points - the lowest total by a Freedom opponent since mid-way through the 2006 season.
Playmaker: Brandon Lee, Park View - He may not have had the best day passing (5-11, 43 yds, TD, 3 INTs), but Lee more than made up for it with his feet, ripping off two 80-yard touchdown runs to propel the Patriots past Liberty. He finished with 16 carries for 221 yds and the two scores and added nine tackles, two blocked kicks and a forced fumble to his already gaudy totals.
Notable Exceptions: RB Jeff Pugh, Freedom - 17 carries, 182 yds, 2 TDs (355 yds, 4 TDs on season); RB T.J. Peeler, Broad Run - 8 carries, 121 yds, 2 TDs; 1 catch , 31 yds; QB Trey Baxter, Dominion - 5-8, 70 yds, TD; 9 carries, 75 yds, TD.
