Can anyone slow down Joe Burrow? For the fifth time, the future Buckeye signal caller walked away as the Land-Grant Holy Land Elite '15 MVP of the Week, this time after locking up 63% of your votes.
In a blowout win last week over Vinton County, the Athens High quarterback went 10 of 13 for 286 yards, and five touchdowns, which was good enough to beat out Nick Conner, Jamel Dean, Eric Glover-Williams, and Denzel Ward, who all played outstanding last week.
It's Sunday. You know what that means. It's time to vote the Week 6 MVP. Did Burrow do enough to win his sixth straight award? Here are this week's nominees:
In what was easily their toughest ball game of the season, Burrow was once again a huge reason why the Bulldogs walked away victorious on Friday night. Taking on Steubenville, Joe shook off a rocky start to complete 20 of his 27 passing attempts for 370 yards and four touchdowns. On the ground he rushed for 77 yards and two more scores in the 58-42 win over the Big Red.
The shifty Canton McKinley running back had himself one heck of a night on Friday. In probably his best overall performance of the season, Glover-Williams rushed the ball 37 times for 206 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 66 yards.
Playing defensive back, Eric intercepted a fourth quarter pass and raced 102 yards for a touchdown, which helped secure a 36-24 McKinley victory over Jackson.
On Friday, Denzel and Nordonia made easy work of Green, running away to a huge 52-0 win. Ward caught two touchdown passes, including one from 44 yards out. From his cornerback position, he picked off two Green passes, both resulting in game changing plays.
His first interception came in the end zone to stall one of the best offensive drives by Green. Ward returned the second 20 yards for a Knights touchdown.
A lot like Glover-Williams and Ward, Conner played a solid game on both sides of the ball against Westerville South. In a 56-49 Dublin Scioto overtime win, Conner rushed the ball 23 times for 167 yards and scored an mind boggling six touchdowns.
On defense, he accounted for eight total tackles, and also had a interception for the Irish, who are now 4-2 on the year.
Saturday evening, Jones, and the Wildcats of Cleveland St. Ignatius took on Canada Prep. The defensive end finished second on the team in tackles with 4.5, which included one for a loss. Jones also recovered not just one, but two Canada Prep fumbles in a 34-7 St. Ignatius win.
