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 for the Bravado Wireless Player Of The Week will be made every Monday with a video feature of the winner coming out on Tuesday. Here’s a look at this week’s candidates.
ANDREW CROW – RUNNING BACK/DEFENSIVE BACK
Rejoice Christian standout Andrew Crow only needed two quarters to earn his spot as a candidate this week. Rejoice won in dominating fashion over Haskell and the senior had a night to remember. And if you blinked, you might have missed it. Crow finished the game with 247 yards on just 13 carries and four touchdowns. He also took a fumble back for his fifth total touchdown on the night as the Eagles remained unbeaten.
ANGELO BELL – WIDE RECEIVER
Putnam City North is off to a 3-0 start and appear to be a serious contender to make the playoffs in November. The Panthers were led by their defense in their first two wins but they put their offense on display in a Thursday night win over Choctaw. Benefitting from the offensive execution was wide receiver Angelo Bell. He was wildly efficient, catching four passes for 170 yards and all four receptions ended with Bell in the end zone for a touchdown.
DANIEL QUEEN – QUARTERBACK
Catoosa rolled over Coweta and improved to 3-0 before a huge district clash against Wagoner. The Indians take pride in their ability to run and playing the “smashmouth” brand of football. That’s exactly what they did as they could not be slowed down in the win over Coweta. Quarterback Daniel Queen led the way with 370 yards on the ground on just 16 carries and finished with three touchdowns. Catoosa totaled nearly 500 yards on the ground as a team.
DORIAN PLUMLEY – QUARTERBACK
El Reno won a shootout over rival Chickasha and quarterback Dorian Plumley had a career night. Just a sophomore, the future is bright for the young quarterback as El Reno could become dangerous as he gains more experience. Plumley finished with just over 250 yards on 8-15 passing with four touchdowns. He also added nearly 100 yards and four more touchdowns on the ground as he accounted for eight total touchdowns on the night.
SAM BRANDT – QUARTERBACK
In one of the marquee games of week three, Bethany traveled to face off with Kingfisher. The Bronchos won on a last second field goal but the play of quarterback Sam Brandt allowed Bethany to be in the position to win the game. Brandt bounced back after a shaky start that included a few turnovers. Brandt threw for over 200 yards and a touchdown and also added nearly 200 yards and three touchdowns on the ground as Bethany improved to 3-0.
