After losing a heartbreaker to open up the season against the Skyline (Tex.) Raiders, the South Grand Prairie (Tex.) Warriors made a slight change to their offensive gameplan. It was a simple one. Get the ball in Greg Eisworth's hands every play and let him do whatever he wants. So far, so good. The Warriors have reeled off four straight wins and sit atop the division standings. Eisworth continues his Eisworth Texas Domination Tour as he disposed of the Midlothian Panthers in a shootout, 56-42. The 6'0, 178-pound athlete was responsible for 347 total yards and four touchdowns. He was 8-of-15 passing for 201 yards and one TD while collecting the other 146 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Even though Eisworth is more than likely going to be on the defensive side of the football when he gets to Oxford, he does look mighty comfortable on the offensive side with the football in his hands.

4-star DeKaylin Metcalf, WR
You can only hold the man down for so long. And after weeks of bracketed coverages and double teams, the four-star wide receiver from Oxford (Miss.) High School finally showed why he is in contention for a fifth star. The Chargers were able to secure a 58-20 victory thanks in large part to the 6'3, 211-pounder's efforts. Metcalf finished with just four catches but they went for 116 yards and two touchdowns. The Monster from Oxford was just simply too much for the Green Wave from West Point, literally and figuratively. As you can see in the highlights below, he was able to utilize his incredibly large frame to shield defenders away from even being remotely close to making a play on the football.

4-star Gabe Angel, TE
It wasn't the end result that the Cookeville (Tenn.) Cavaliers wanted, but four-star tight end/running back/safety/Mr. Everything Gabe Angel did everything in his power to help achieve a victory. Nevertheless, the Cavs lost a tough one to the Blackman (Tenn.) Blaze, 49-28. After Blackman jumped out to an early 21-0 lead, the Cavaliers leaned heavily on their 6'4, 217-pound playmaker as he rushed rushed four times for 105 yards and a touchdown, an electrifying 64-yard scamper down the sideline. It was Cookeville's first loss of the year as they are now 5-1 on the year. Despite the setback, Angel has been an instrumental part of the Cavaliers' fast start this season. Angel has 381 all-purpose yards and six total touchdowns despite multiple double teams. He's also collected 23 tackles and has five passes defended.
