Your post sounds like best player from best team, which is hard to argue. My question about Ware is he appears to have missed the last two game and his team keeps rolling. Is he injured? Ineligible? ('tis the season...)
There are so many variables. I don't know how anyone could determine who the best player is. Not everyone posts stats and even fewer have video available. (I wish everyone would bc I love seeing what other kids across the state are doing.) I've seen a kid put up huge numbers against creampuffs, but then gets shut down by a decent defense. Does losing when not playing well (or not playing at all) mean that kid is more or less valuable? My son is a better football player this year than last, but he's got more help this year and because we 45 most of our opponents, his numbers are down from last season. We won a game by 50 points where we had 100 yards of total offense. The stats wouldn't indicate that we did anything special that night. I really think the only way a kid will get individual recognition is if his team advances deep into the playoffs. Last year, the 1st team all state team in our division was basically the starting lineups from the two finalists.
Ware is coming off a minor injury and will be back next or the following week. (Not season ending). Yes his team is still rolling. But that is a testament to the depth of the program.
Cedric Ware: 903 yds, 22 td rushing; 12 rec, 177 yds, 3 TD; 38 tkl (stats according to Big Country blitz) keep in mind this is in 4 1/2 games (he didn’t play much in the Garden City game)
903 yards rushing against (happy, Jonesboro, Rankin, Spur and GC) (180.6) that’s pretty impressive in my books. 22 touchdowns in 5 games (4.4 average), 177 receiving yards (35 average)
The reason I said May and Rankin. They also had a tough preseason. Not sure on their kids stats but they would be hard earned stats for sure.
Stats against weak opponents are null. I take into consideration the strength of schedule.
