Midlands Ballers LIVE: Week 6

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we took in some action from Week 6 and here are a few players who stood out…

Traevohn Wrench – Gardner-Edgerton (KS)
One of the top Midlands backs for the 2014 class went off this past weekend rushing for 310 yards on 29 carries, scoring four touchdowns. In his team's 35-20 win, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Wrench showed that he is a patient runner who picks his holes wisely and has the ability to make defenders miss in the open field.

Aaron Sharp – Humble (TX) Summer Creek 
Sharp is an interesting player that was poised to have an awesome season since taking the reins as a freshman two years ago. Clear to see development has gone well. He threw for over 250 yards and three touchdowns and was strong in the pocket. UTEP has tossed a name in the hat, but know that more are soon to come.

Deon Hollins – Missouri City (TX) Marshall
A comment was made saying that Hollins is the best pass rusher in the state of Texas. After last Friday's game, that is hard to argue. For two-thirds of the game, he fought off double teams and was still able to make tackles. But coach took him off the leash in the final minutes of the game, unleashing the ‘jet-mode' play that has the current UCLA commit being sought after by more 30 Division I programs.

Braden Smith – Olathe (KS) South 
As one of the few five-stars from the class of 2014, Smith showed once again that he is worth each one of them. He played on both side of the line in a losing effort this past weekend. But even in the loss, the 6-foot-6, 278-pound Smith is easily one of the most physically impressive players we have ever seen.
-Greg Powers

Darius Moore – Missouri City (TX) Marshall
In the 42-31 win last Friday, Moore spent lots of time on the ground. This was not because he has bad feet or anything of the sort, but more so because of all the pancakes that he recorded. The future Baylor guard was strong off the line and helped his backs rush for an impressive 296 yards on the ground.
