2014 Week 2

     ASWA Players of the Week

Sardis' Jesse Hubbard kept taking things away from Sylvania on Friday, helping the Lions take the victory.

Hubbard intercepted four passes, with the fourth his own end zone in the final minute, and added 14 solo tackles in a 21-16 victory over Sylvania. For his performance, he is this week's Alabama Sports Writers Association Defense/Special Teams Player of the Week. His four interceptions is one shy of the AHSAA single-game record.

The two other finalists for the Defense/Special Teams award -- Cleveland's Brett Erwin and West Point's Will Wrenn -- also enjoyed success in the takeaway department.

Erwin had a pair of fumble recoveries and an interception in a 37-20 victory over Pisgah. He also had seven tackles and a pass break-up. Wrenn intercepted two passes in a 31-0 road victory over Hayden.

This week's ASWA Offensive Player of the Week is Jackson quarterback Demarcus Williams. He accounted for five touchdowns -- two passing and three rushing -- to lead the Aggies to a 34-24 victory over Clarke County. Williams' 14-yard touchdown run in the opening minute of the fourth quarter put Jackson ahead to stay and finished with more than 400 yards of total offense -- 311 passing and 70 rushing.

The two finalists for the Offensive award are Good Hope's Riley Eisner and UMS-Wright's Troy Dixon.

Eisner completed 34 of 64 passes for 403 yards, five touchdowns (43, 11, 11, 58, 14) and three interceptions in a 48-41 loss at Cordova. The sophomore's 64 attempts ranks third in AHSAA single-game history, according to the AHSAA's online record book, while his 34 completions is tied for fifth all-time.

Dixon rushed for five touchdowns, including TD runs of 96 and 54 yards, in a 47-17 victory over Andalusia. He finished with 246 yards on 24 carries.
