Player of the Week: Plymouth North's Christian Carr

PLYMOUTH, Mass. -- There are still several weeks remaining in MIAA football season for Plymouth North -- come win or loss in the Division 3 Southeast sectional final this week -- but junior running back Christian Carr has already etched his name into the school's record book.

With a 351-yard performance against Dighton-Rehoboth in last week's district semi-final, Carr became the Eagles' all-time, single-season rusher. Carr scored three touchdowns to lead North to a 19-14 win over D-R, setting up a sectional final date with crosstown rival Plymouth South this Friday.

For Carr's efforts, he was named our ESPN Boston Player of the Week.
