Last week 2015 Overland athlete Josh Wright highlighted the Phenoms on the strength of over 300 yards rushing in a win. This week Colorado uber-athlete Austin Conway gets the nod in due to his six touchdown performance in a 54-0 win over Legend. Conway, who will attend Wyoming on a basketball scholarship, has paced Overland to an undefeated start. Next week will be the first test of the Overland offensive machine as they take on defending state big school champ Valor Christian. Along with Conway, fellow Wyoming to be athlete, Kevin Prosser, who will play football for the Cowboys, dominated on defense and special teams blocking two punts in the win.
Quietly Pueblo South has jumped out to a 3-0 start on the strength of a very balanced offense. Thursday, in a 37-20 win over Wheat Ridge, senior running back Ray Mitchell averaged eight yards a carry totaling 139 yards and scoring three times.
Another Thursday night hero, sophomore Isaac Gonzales, posted 167 yards and two scores as his Pomona squad blanked Mullen 26-0. The previous week Gonzales rushed for over 200 yards in a win over Cherry Creek.
Good to see Manual jump out to a 3-0 start. Key to the start is the work of running back Elijah Huff. The senior back has rushed for over 641 yards in the three wins. This week Huff put up 290 yards in 26-19 win over Denver North.
After a 0-2 start Standley Lake needed and win and they got one Friday 46-21 against Green Mountain. Junior running back Michael Kerr rushed for 199 yards, including a 99 yard TD run.

Another team to gain its first win was Boulder High School. The key to the 42-22 victory was 300 rush yards from junior star T.J. Jones. The 6-0 195 pound back averaged nearly 16 yards a carry and scored three times. Jones also took a pick six back 85 yards.
