TPI's Week 9 Top Performers: 17-5A

With all the football action going on all across the state, TPI's Ahmard Vital will highlight some of the top player performances from Week 9 in the District of 17-5A.

QB Jacob Thompson, Cy Creek
Even with a performance that will probably not be duplicated all season, Thompson's big plays are worthy of TPI's top list. Through the air, he completed 22-of-43 for 394 yards and five touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for another 206 yards and four touchdowns. Despite a nine-touchdown performance, the Cougars fell to Cy Fair 63-62.

RBs Hasan Lipscomb and Kyle Hamilton, Cy Ridge
Despite only having the ball a total of 26 times the entire game, The Rams' running game was on point in a 49-22 win over Strake Jesuit. Lipscomb ended with a 181 yards and three touchdowns while Hamilton had four carries for 125 yards and a touchdown. These totals were in addition to Russell Shepard's 123-yard/two-touchdown performance that helped the Rams to over 400 yards of total offense.

QB Kolby Gray, Cy Falls
Just save Gray a permanent spot on TPI's top list because he continues to turn in the big numbers. In a 48-28 win over Jersey Village, Gray completed 22-of-39 for 370 yards and four touchdowns and one interception. He also had 32 yards on the ground.

RB Sam McGuffie, Cy Fair
In a game with over 1,200 yards of total offense, McGuffie made his presence known. He rushed 18 times for 225 yards and four touchdowns in a 63-62 winning effort over Cy Creek.

QB Jeff McVaney, Strake Jesuit
McVaney should get the iron man award for his game play against Cy Ridge. Despite the outcome (49-22 Cy Ridge), McVaney was 17-of-37 for 198 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions. He was impressive on the ground gaining 140 tough yards and a touchdown.

RB Shane Turner, Cy Falls
Turner has wowed crowds all season with his explosive running style and in a 49-28 win over Jersey Village, he did it again. He had 138 yards and three touchdowns rushing. As a receiver, he caught four passes for 63 yards.
