Karmello English, wide receiver
English was a pivotal part of the Central passing attack in Friday’s victory over Auburn High. When it was all said and done, English had nine receptions for 141 yards and two touchdowns – including a 63-yard scoring strike on the game’s first drive.
Kaden Cooper, running back
Cooper paced the Opelika offense throughout the night in the Bulldogs’ big region victory. He ended the night with 16 carries for 122 yards and three rushing touchdowns and also had 86 yards in kick returns against Russell County.
Tyrese McCullough, running back
McCullough made plays on offense and on special teams against Loachapoka on Friday. The sophomore had 42 rushing yards, a 47-yard touchdown reception to tie the game and over 100 punt-return yards – some of which came on a return that set up Notasulga’s go-ahead score for a lead it did not surrender.
