Every Sunday, OKPreps will take a look at the best performances from the previous week. We’ll narrow it down to five candidates and open it up so you can vote for the “Fan’s Favorite” Player Of The Week. You can vote as many times as you want for your pick and the voting will end at Noon on Wednesday. The winner will be crowned on Wednesday afternoon. The staff selection will be made every Monday with a feature of the winner coming out on Tuesday. Here’s a look at this week’s candidates.
BRYCE CABRERA – RUNNING BACK
Owasso running back Bryce Cabrera has to be considered “Mr. Reliable” for the Rams and their championship run. Cabrera continued his consistent play in their championship victory over Union. Cabrera finished with just over 200 yards of total offense and one touchdown. He had over 100 yards rushing and over 100 yards receiving in the win. His running in their final drive was a big reason why the Rams were able to knock off Union for the the title.
DALTON SPRING – QUARTERBACK
Beggs quarterback Dalton Spring had the game of his life as he helped lead Beggs to the state championship in a win over Sulphur. Spring threw for nearly 600 yards as the Demons knocked off the Bulldogs. Spring completed over 50% of his passes for 581 yards and four touchdowns. Spring is one of several junior quarterbacks in Oklahoma who have become breakout stars this season. Spring and Beggs now turn their attention to the state title game.
DEMARIYON HOUSTON – WIDE RECEIVER
One of the best wide receivers in Oklahoma’s junior class showed why he is just that on Saturday night. Millwood continued their dominant season by shutting out Alva 37-0. While the defense has been getting all the headlines after shutting out their first four playoff meetings, it was Houston who shined on offense. He finished with just four catches but he was efficient. His four catches went for over 175 yards and three touchdowns in the win.
DEVONTE LEE – RUNNING BACK
The legend of John Marshall running back Devonte Lee continues to grow. Lee and the Bears are headed to the state championship after knocking off defending champion Jones. Lee finished with nearly 200 yards and four touchdowns in the win and he was nowhere near 100%. Nursing an injury, Lee was held to one touchdown in the first half. In the second half, Lee hit a gear that couldn’t be contained. He had 150 yards and three touchdowns.
WIL AMOS – QUARTERBACK
Afton quarterback Wil Amos is once again a candidate for OKPreps Player Of The Week after continuing his dominant senior season. The Eagles rolled to a semifinal victory on Friday night against Thomas. Amos once again did most of his damage on the ground, carrying the ball 32 times in their victory. He finished with over 350 yards on the ground and also threw for over 100 yards. He finished with four total touchdowns in the win.
