Roman Gagliano, quarterback Opelika
Gagliano didn’t have to play very long Thursday night, but he made the most of every opportunity. He only took 11 snaps with the first-team offense but managed to go 6-of-6 passing for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the Bulldogs’ shutout victory over Park Crossing.
Tyler Ellis, quarterback Tallassee
Ellis led the way for Tallassee in a crucial 39-28 region win over Central-Clay County. He completed 13 of his 19 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns as the Tigers locked up the No. 2 seed in Class 5A-Region 4.
Clyde Pittman, quarterback Auburn High
Pittman had a homecoming performance to remember in Auburn’s 42-28 win over Enterprise. The senior quarterback completed all 13 of his passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns, and he added 64 rushing yards — including a 49-yard touchdown run.
