Future Buckeye Joe Burrow has been on fire so far this season. For the second week in a row, the 6'4, 210 poundAthens High School quarterback won our Land-Grant Holy Land Elite '15 MVP of the week.
Running away with 64% of your votes, Burrow, who completed 18 of his 25 passing attempts for 389 yards and six touchdowns in a huge Athens High victory over Zanesville last week, beat out linebacker Nick Conner of Dublin Scioto, Canton McKinley speedy running back Eric Glover-Williams, Nordonia defensive back Denzel Ward, and massive 6'9 offensive lineman Kevin Feder of Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey for the award.
The commits were back at it this weekend, so you know what that means. It's time to vote for the Week 3 Elite '15 MVP. Here are your five nominees:
Just like the first two games of the season, Burrow led Athens to another huge victory on Friday night. In a 69-6 win over Warren, Joe completed 10 of his 14 passing attempts for 219 yards and five touchdowns. He also rushed for 51 yards on five carries. Did he do enough to win his third MVP of the week award?
On Friday, Cornell and Cretin-Derham Hall (MN) stuck around, but didn't have enough in the end to pull out a victory, falling to Mounds View, 20-12. Even though his squad might not have walked away victorious, Cornell had himself an impressive night, telling Land-Grant Holy Land he had 12 total tackles, including five for a loss. During halftime, the defensive end received his Under Armour All-American jersey.
The future Buckeye linebacker starred on both sides of the ball in Dublin Scioto's 38-3 Friday win over a solid Marysville squad. Conner snatched up 4.5 total tackles and a sack on defense. In the backfield, the four-star prospect scored three touchdowns on only four carries, and hauled in 2 passes for 14 yards to help lead the Irish to victory.
In a 48-14 Cocoa Beach (FL) win over Astronaut on Friday, Dean, who will play defensive back when he suits up for the Buckeyes next year, finished with 114 yards and caught two touchdown passes from 2017 Ohio State target Bruce Judson.
On Saturday, Jones, a four-star defensive end, led the Lakewood St. Edward's stout defense with nine tackles, two sacks, and three tackles for loss, in a 42-34 win over St. Joseph's (PA). Dre'Mont's only hiccup of the day came on offense when he fumbled and loss the ball after hauling in a 14 yard reception.
