Despite his Klein Collins team getting off to a rough start at 1-3, Franklin Mitchem hopes to pick up his game as well as his team's game. Mitchem has had a huge bright spot, and one can only hope that it will serve as a turning point for him and his Klein Collins team. District play started last weekend for Collins, and in that game Mitchem had a 92 yard interception return for a TD. That is his only big stat so far this year, as tackle stats are not available.
Blake Collier of Justin Northwest is one of those do it all guys. Slated to be either a linebacker or strong safety in college, Collier also adds the role of fullback to his repertoire at Northwest. Offensively, Collier has not been explosive, but is very much aiding his team. So far Collier has carried the ball 2 times for 72 yards and a TD. He has also caught 4 passes for 154 yards and a TD. Last week on defense, Collier had 8 tackles and 3 pass break-ups, as a strong safety. Collier is not only fullback, linebacker, and safety, but he also returns kick-offs.
Since a lot of teams had an off-week, it was hard to figure out who did what this week. But since a lot of places kick-off district tonight, look for updates on these three players as well as a few others starting Monday night on the next edition of Friday Night Spotight.
