Private schools POW: Sterling Shepard, Heritage Hall...
By Robert Przybylo
There were any number of Chargers to pick from. Sophomore Brandon Moews had two interceptions and returned one for a touchdown. Sophomore Barry Sanders (remember, no Jr.) rushed for 171 yards and three touchdowns, caught another and had an interception.
But in the end, I think the play of Sterling Shepard was the thing that got Heritage rolling in a 49-7 victory against Newkirk to earn him the Private Schools Player of the Week.
Shepard’s stats weren’t outstanding (one passing TD, two rushing scores), but he set the tone early. He is making better decisions with each game and threw some of his best balls this year. The Chargers are starting to find some balance to go with the running game.
Newkirk wanted to stack the box, but once Shepard found Cale Courtney a couple of times for big gains, Tigers were left in a bind. And Shepard becomes another running back when he decides to just take off and run.
That’s back-to-back solid passing games from Shepard, which is a great sign if you’re a Chargers fan.
Bishop McGuinness defense: There will be a story on Jay Lester and Jameel Whitney in Tuesday’s paper and a litany of Irish players could be deserving, so I’m just giving it to the D in a 34-0 win at Guymon.
