Players of the Week

First Posted: 9/2/2009

Mount Airy

Andy Temoney The Granite Bears tailback had his second consecutive 100-yard game in one of the biggest regular season wins in recent Bear history. Boo carried the ball 25 times for 145 yards and two scores to lead Mount Airy to a 28-21 triumph over Thomasville.

East Surry Andrew Hunter/Logan Hoosier Hoosier, a senior quarterback, found Hunter twice for deep pass plays on Saturday, keeping the Cardinals just slightly ahead of Starmount.

North Surry

Joston Phipps The electric quarterback scored both of North Surrys touchdowns in a loss at Elkin Friday. He scampered for scores on runs of 70 and 5 yards.

Michael France France led the Greyhounds passing attack with three catches for 27 yards.

Surry Central

Shane Johnson The speedy senior receiver, who sat out parts of the first contest of the season with a leg injury, helped the Golden Eagles build a 14-0 first-quarter lead Friday when he hauled in a 14-yard touchdown pass on a post route. He was hit on the play, but managed to keep control of the ball and fall into the end zone.

Alex Wilmoth The multi-purpose junior did a little bit of everything from rushing to receiving. Perhaps his best moment came on a play that didnt count in the first half when Wilmoth jumped for a pass only to be be cracked by a pair of East Wilkes defenders. He popped right up after the hit with football in hand, but was called to have dropped the would-be first-down catch, which Wilmoth and Surry Central coaches vehemently denied. Catch or no catch, the kid showed guts.
