East Region Player of the Week
Logan Moore, Fairmont Senior (Fairmont, W.Va.)
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior quarterback/defensive back led unbeaten Fairmont Senior (8-0) to a 58-35 victory over Wheeling Park (Wheeling, W.Va.). Moore, a three-year regular, accounted for 461 of his team's 647 yards of offense and seven of its eight touchdowns. He was 20-of-31 passing for 325 yards and three scores and rushed 13 times for 136 yards and four TDs. He also intercepted two passes. Moore, who has passed for 1,805 yards and 23 TDs and rushed for eight scores, wears No. 4 because he's a fan of Brett Favre.
Southeast Region Player of the Week
Marcus Shaw, DeSoto County (Arcadia, Fla.)
Consistently spectacular might be a good description for Shaw. The 5-10, 180-pound senior went over the 200-yard mark for the sixth time in eight games, this time carrying 34 times for 322 yards and three TDs in a 38-28 win over Immokalee (Immokalee, Fla.). It was his second 300-yard game, and for the season he has rushed for 1,877 yards and scored 22 touchdowns. Shaw ran for 2,380 yards and had 35 TDs as a junior. He has scholarship offers from South Florida, Iowa State, Syracuse, Tulane and Central Florida.
Midwest Region Player of the Week
Devin Gardner, Inkster (Inkster, Mich.)
The 6-foot-4, 195-pound quarterback accounted for 330 yards and all 36 points as the Vikings ended two of the nation's longest win streaks with a 36-29 victory at Steubenville (Steubenville, Ohio). The Michigan recruit and Elite 11 participant was 14-of-25 passing for 275 yards and four TDs, and he rushed 11 times for 55 yards and a score. He also passed for two conversions and ran for one. His 63-yard pass to Vorheese Zanders with 49 seconds left was the winner and halted a 68-game regular-season win streak for Steubenville as well as a 60-game home victory run. Steubenville hadn't lost at Harding Stadium since 2001 and was seeking its seventh straight unbeaten regular season. Inkster (5-3) qualified for the state playoffs despite playing all road games, including three in Ohio, because of the folding of its conference.
Southwest Region Player of the Week
Anteries Daniels, Northwest (Omaha, Neb.)
The 5-11, 190-pound senior played his last game for the winless Huskies and set a Class A state record for rushing yards in a game. Daniels, regarded as one of the top college prospects in the Omaha area, finished with 410 yards and four TDs on 36 carries. According to an Associated Press story, Daniels -- who fumbled three times -- wasn't sure he would play in the fourth quarter of the 51-33 loss to Benson (Omaha, Neb.) but did and scored on runs of 59, 2 and 6 yards. His 410 yards broke the Class A (the class containing the largest schools in Nebraska) record of 398 set in 1991 by Jerry Swain of Omaha South.
West Region Player of the Week
Jason Lee, Downey (Modesto, Calif.)
One week after Lee passed 67 times for 451 yards, he was at it again during a 49-26 victory over Beyer (Modesto, Calif.). Lee was 33-of-58 for 485 yards and six TDs, pushing his season totals through seven games to 2,804 yards and 26 TDs. He been intercepted 12 times, and his team won for just the second time Friday. Even if Downey misses the postseason and plays only four more games, Lee could approach 4,000 yards. According to the CalHiSports.com Record Book & Almanac, the regular-season state record is 3,963 yards, set in 2000 by David Koral of Palisades (Pacific Palisades, Calif).
