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 staff selection for the Player Of The Week will be made Wednesday and both winners will have a feature on Wednesday afternoon. Here’s a look at this week’s candidates.
BRYCE STEPHENS – WIDE RECEIVER/DEFENSIVE BACK – JOHN MARSHALL
John Marshall’s Bryce Stephens is one of the top recruits in Oklahoma’s 2021 class. He showed why he’s already on the radar of major colleges across the state with his performance in a blowout win over Capitol Hill. Stephens scored in three different ways on Friday night and finished with four total touchdowns. He caught a TD, took a kick back for six and returned his two interceptions for scores as well.
DANIEL “DEUCE” HISHAW – QUARTERBACK – MOORE
Moore bounced back after a rivalry loss to Westmoore by beating up on Yukon on Thursday night. Leading the way offensively was star quarterback, and Kansas commit, Daniel “Deuce” Hishaw. The senior led an explosive offensive attack that put up big play after big play. He accounted for 370 yards of total offense and also four touchdowns. The Lions could not be slowed down all night as Hishaw put up big play after big play.
ELI WILLIAMS – QUARTERBACK – SAPULPA
We stay at the quarterback position and another Big 12 commit with Sapulpa QB and TCU commit Eli Williams. Sapulpa was in a road battle with Claremore in one of the top games of week two. Williams and the Chieftains would turn it on in the second half and run away with the win. Williams finished with 61 yards passing but dominated the game on the ground. He finished with 244 yards and four touchdowns on 18 carries.
GARRETT MITCHELL – WIDE RECEIVER – PRYOR
In one of the bigger upsets in week two, Pryor beat Wagoner in a classic with a 42-41 win. Pryor wide receiver Garrett Mitchell took full advantage of the shootout and had a historic night for the Tigers. He caught 12 passes for 359 yards and four touchdowns as the Tigers got a big win over Wagoner, vaulting them into the 5A top ten rankings. Mitchell’s performance on Friday is one of the best from a receiver so far this year.
THAD WILLIAMS – QUARTERBACK – CHOCTAW
We go back to the quarterback position for our final candidate. Choctaw took care of business on Thursday night with an easy win over Lawton Eisenhower. Quarterback Thad Williams put up huge numbers in the passing and running game. He threw for 349 yards and five touchdowns on 10-15 passing. He also added 54 yards and a score on the ground. Williams dominated the game early on and made it a quick night for the Jackets.
