2014 Week 8

     ASWA Players of the Week

Clay-Chalkville quarterback Tyrell Pigrome delivered a big performance on the big stage.

      In perhaps the biggest game in Alabama so far this season, Pigrome completed 14 of his 20 passes for 270 yards and four touchdowns and added 122 yards and another touchdown on 13 carries to lead the Class 6A No. 2-ranked Cougars to a 59-27 victory over No. 3 Shades Valley.

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

Pigrome edged two strong performances from running backs - Hoover's Bradrick Shaw and Carbon Hill's Stevie Simerly -- to win this week's award.

Shaw logged seven carries for 220 yards and TD runs 81, 30 and 64 yards in a 66-27 victory over Tuscaloosa County. Simerly rushed 20 times for 286 yards and touchdown runs of 2, 10, 63 and 74 yards in a 36-20 victory over Curry, ending the Bulldogs' 26-game losing streak.

Spain Park's Michael Jackson snagged the Defense/Special Teams Player of the Week award. He blocked a field goal and an extra point - both in the fourth quarter - to secure a 14-13 victory over Vestavia Hills. The victory keeps the Jags' flickering playoff hopes alive.

The finalists for the Defense/Special Teams award are Sparkman's Jordan Allen and Vigor's Dwight Williams. Allen had 15 tackles and returned a fumble 92 yards for a fourth-quarter score in a 42-24 victory over Buckhorn - Sparkman's first win of the season. Williams returned a kickoff 51 yards to set up the go-ahead score and also intercepted a pair of passes in a 31-13 victory over Faith Academy.
