Kennedy Watch Update (Week One)

Gathering Attention

Dewayne Grantham (RB) Martinsburg

Caleb Jantuah (QB) Richwood

Blake Hartman (RB) Musselman

 

 

#5 Donovan Kirby

WeirRedRiders

Kirby will have to get used to not being the only horse on his offense at Weir.  Saying that, he did not break 100 yards but did score three times in a dominating win over Oak Glen.  He will absolutely see more carries with closer games.  His statistical issue will be that his quarterback, Tyler Komorowski, is also an awesome offensive weapon.  Regardless, still a good night for the reigning rushing champ.

 

#4 Malakai Brown

HedgesvilleEagles

Brown also fell victim to getting pulled early due to dominating.  However, before he was pulled, he still managed five catches, 109 yards, and a score.  As with Kirby above, he will get more opportunities in closer games.  It’s quite the compliment that 109 and a score is a down game as a receiver in high school football.  That’s why he’s on the list.

 

#3 Ivan Vaughn

CabellMidlandKnights

Vaughn did not get to play much in the second half of a St. Albans spanking.  Though, before he was pulled, he tallied 193 and three scores in the first half and also a 40-yard touchdown reception.  He will definitely get more carries in closer games but as long as he runs like he does there won’t be too many close games.

 

#2 Cason Payne

PointPleasantBigBlacks

Payne delivered yet again in another classic at Mingo Central.  His big game allowed them to snap a 22-game win streak at home- very similar to what happened to them a year ago.  The close game was emphasized with Payne’s 136 and two scores through the air and 220 and two scores on the ground.  Quite a night.

 

#1 Kerry Martin Jr.

CapitalCougars

Martin Jr. started his campaign off with a bang.  In a comeback and revenge victory over Kentucky-powerhouse Johnson Central, Martin Jr. made plays early and often to gather the win.  This included some highlight reel broken tackles and deep passes that ultimately gave the Cougars a big win.
