2014 Week 4

     ASWA Players of the Week

Baker running back Tre McMillian isn't the biggest player on the field, but he had the state's biggest performance last week.

          McMillian, a 5-foot-6, 167-pound sophomore, rolled up 313 yards on 14 carries, scoring on runs of 79, 36, 78 and 55 yards and a caught 38-yard screen pass for a fifth touchdown, to lead Baker to a 41-31 victory over McGill-Toolen. His 78-yard run gave the Hornets the lead for good at 34-31 with 4:59 remaining, as the Hornets improved to 4-0 for the first time since 1984.

          For his performance, McMillian is this week's Alabama Sports Writers Association Offensive Player of the Week.

          "We just came out in the second half with a different mindset," McMillian told after the game. "We came out to dominate. We just couldn't lose to McGill. We couldn't."

          The finalists for the weekly offensive award are Shades Valley quarterback RaShad Louie and Woodville's Jose Montesdeoca.

          Louie ran 11 times for 200 yards and two scores, while also completing 20 of 34 passes for 222 yards and three TDs, in a 39-21 victory on the road against Acadiana (La.) on Saturday night

          Montesdeoca accounted for 290 yards and six touchdowns in Woodville's 41-26 victory over Vina. He ran five times for 162 yards and three touchdowns and caught four passes for 128 yards and three TDs. He also had a two-point conversion and kicked an extra point. 

          This week's ASWA Defense/Special Teams Player of the Week is Madison Academy's Kerryon Johnson, who blocked two punts, scored on 47-yard run off a fake punt and recovered a fumble in a 57-7 victory over Sheffield.

          The two Defense/Special Teams finalists are Opelika's Roy Yancey and Escambia Academy's Tim Finklea. Yancey recorded 21 tackles, with two sacks and two fumble recoveries, in a 53-0 victory over Pell City, and Finklea returned kickoffs 94 and 78 yards for touchdowns in a victory over Fort Dale Academy.
