While there were a couple of close games on Friday's slate, Week Two was mostly filled with dominant wins.
Unfortunately, a couple of the teams from the area were on the wrong end of those lopsided scores, but there were still plenty of victorious squads.
From those teams, more than enough players stepped forward to claim honors for the week.
Faheem Richburg, WR Williston-Elko
The Blue Devils recorded their first win of the season in a 30-9 victory over Barnwell, and Richburg was a central figure. In addition to catching four passes for 74 yards and a touchdown, he returned a kickoff 97 yards for another score.
Travious Wigfall, RB Ridge Spring-Monetta
The Trojans pitched 24-0 shutout against Dixie, and Wigfall found the end zone in both facets of the offense. On top of a 10-carry, 129-yard ground game, he caught a pass for a 67-yard touchdown.
Daniel and Dre Carr, QB/RB Midland Valley
As has been the case for most of the last season-plus, the pair of cousins carried the Mustangs to a 38-32 win over Allendale-Fairfax. They combined for more than 450 yards of offense and five touchdowns, three on the ground by Dre.
Ike El, RB Fox Creek
The Predators notched a 41-7 win over Branchville, and El powered his way to nearly 9 yards a carry with 141 yards and a touchdown on 16 attempts.
Dashawn Barnes and Willie McCloud, RBs North Augusta
While the Jackets' passing game gets most of the attention, Friday's 45-0 win over Greenbrier was all about the ground game. Barnes had 107 yards and three touchdowns, while McCloud had 138 yards and another score.
Myles Corbitt, RB Silver Bluff
The Bulldogs spread the ball around in a 34-0 home win over Southside Christian, but Corbitt established himself. He had 112 yards and a score on nine rushes, and he also caught a pass for 15 more yards.
Chad Gilchrist, RB Strom Thurmond
Strom Thurmond pulled away from Saluda for a 28-17 road victory, and Gilchrist paced a Rebel running attack that saw five players get carries. He had 117 yards and a 31-yard touchdown on 11 rushing attempts.
