The best of the best performances from Week 10



    Beasts of the Week
    What BEASTS!!!

    With the regular season over and done with, we'll take a look back at the top performances of Week 10 and look forward to the postseason kicking off on Thursday.

    1. Aldo Quiroga, Randall Joyner, Al Lasker: The Newman Smith quarterback, running back and receiver were all huge in Friday's 70-56 shootout win over Richardson Pearce. The win was the Trojans' eighth of the season, which was a school record for the program that will make its first playoff apperance since 1983 after years of being a laughing stock. After seeing the Trojans in Week 0, I was impressed, but I didn't think they'd be 8-2 at this point. In the game, Quiroga accounted for six TDs, Joyner rushed for 297 yards and two touchdowns and Lasker had six catches for an even 200 yards and four scores.

    2. Damion Willis, RB, McKinney: Often taking a backseat to the McKinney high-powered passing offense, Willis has come alive as of late, and that was clearly evident in Friday's playoff-clinching win over Frisco Liberty. Willis rushed for 265 yards on 40 carries and scored twice.

    3. Jarman Johnson, RB, Pilot Point: Johnson is without a doubt the most electrifying player in the small school level at Class 2A Pilot Point. In Friday's big showdown of undefeated teams against Aubrey, Johnson stole the show and made a blowout of the game in the Bearcats' favor. He rushed 27 times for 247 yards and three touchdowns to lock down a perfect 10-0 record for Pilot Point and a District 10-2A title.

    4. Mac Morse, QB, Richardson Pearce: Even though his team lost, Morse put up some eye-popping numbers for the Mustangs on Friday when he completed 45 of 68 pass attempts for a ridiculous 604 yards and four touchdowns as his defense just simply couldn't stop the No. 1 beasts.

    5. Justin Chambers, DB, Pilot Point: Another star for the Bearcats in the big Aubrey-Pilot Point tilt, the senior was all over the field for the Bearcats' defense  and helped them pull out the win. Chambers totaled 15 tackles on the night to go with his two interceptions and forced fumble.
