After totaling 14 tackles and two sacks, future Buckeye defensive end Jashon Cornell took an early lead, but in the end fell short of knocking off Joe Burrow for the Land-Grant Holy Land Elite '15 MVP of the Week.
Winning the award for the fourth straight week, Burrow, a quarterback from Athens High School, beat out Cornell by less than 10 votes to continue his reign as MVP.
Burrow and the rest of the commits were back at it over the weekend. Did the signal caller do enough to be named MVP for a fifth time? The poll is open. Let your voice be heard.
Here are this week's nominees:
Leading Athens to a 61-14 win over Vinton County, Burrow completed 10 of his 13 passing attempts for 286 yards and five touchdowns. Next Friday, Joe and the Bulldogs will have their toughest match-up so far this season, as they take on Steubenville, who lost to 2017 OSU commit Danny Clark and Massillon Washington on Friday.
The Cocoa (FL) standout will play in the defensive secondary at OSU, but showed off his offensive skills on Friday. The speedster caught three passes from 2017 Buckeye target Bruce Judson for 85 yards and a touchdown, which helped secure a 37-28 win over Jacksonville Raines.
Canton McKinley played well, but didn't have enough in the tank to pull out a victory against Lake. In a 25-22 Bulldog loss, Glover-Williams rushed for 140 yards and scored a total of three touchdowns, including a 54-yard punt return on special teams.
On Friday night, Conner caught four passes for 38 yards and scored a rushing touchdown to help Dublin Scioto to a solid 27-6 win over Westerville North. On defense, the linebacker finished with 8.5 total tackles for the Irish.
The Future Buckeye defensive back only needed one half to put up some rather impressive stats. In a 34-0 Nordonia victory over Cloverleaf, Ward hauled in four receptions for 122 yards and three touchdowns. Denzel and the Knights are now 5-0 on the season.
