Fan poll: Week 9 OKC-Area Football Player of the Week
NOTE: This week’s Player of the Week feature story and poll results will appear in Wednesday’s edition of The Oklahoman, rather than Tuesday’s paper. However, voting in the poll will still end at 5 p.m. on Monday.
Football fans, it’s time to let us know who you thought was the Player of the Week in Week 9 of the high school football season around the Oklahoma City area.
Pick one of the five selections from the poll below, or write in your own candidate in the comments section, where you can tell us why your choice deserves Player of the Week honors.
The results of the poll will appear in Tuesday’s Oklahoman, and some of the best reader comments might get in as well. Voting ends at 5 p.m. Monday.
So cast your vote, discuss and debate the best performance from Week 9:
Tre Kelley, WR, Edmond Santa Fe
The big, fast wideout came through with big play after big play as the Wolves clinched the city championship and a district title. Kelley had 185 yards and a TD on five catches, including 82- and 67-yard grabs to set up TDs.
Austin Richards, RB, Westmoore
Several Westmoore players starred in the 55-42 win over Mustang, but Richards’ 221 rushing yards kept the offense balanced, and his 92-yard TD run sparked the Jaguars’ comeback from 21 down in the second quarter.
Quinn Shanbour, QB, Heritage Hall
It’s hard to pick just one player for the Chargers, but Shanbour was on top of his game in Friday’s 55-10 win over Bethany. He completed 12 of 15 passes for 293 yards and six TDs, with only two pass attempts coming after halftime.
Dior Smiley, RB/WR, Douglass
He only had three receptions and four rushing attempts, but he made all of them meaningful, accounting for 142 total yards and three TDs — also a couple other crucial third-down catches — as Douglass knocked off Glenpool 33-30 to put the Trojans in position to seal up another district title.
Josh Way, RB/LB, Wayne
Going against a Wynnewood defense that had allowed 40 total points through eight games, Way rushed for 155 yards and four touchdowns, then returned an interception for a score as Wayne clinched the district title with a 47-42 win.
