Seven players who accounted for at least three touchdowns. Four 100-yard rushers. Two 100-yard receivers and another who caught a school-record 89-yard touchdown pass.
Those are just a few of the highlights of a star-studded ballot for the Week 6 RBC Heritage High School Football Player of the Week.
Three area teams hung half-a-hundred on the scoreboard, which means we had some seriously impressive offensive stats to consider, and with unreal QB-WR duos accounting for much of the offensive outburst for two of those teams, we were compelled to double up on nominees from Bluffton and Hilton Head High.
The voting should be intense, and it closes at 5 p.m. Wednesday, so cast your vote and spread the word.
The nominees are …
• Hunter Eldridge, BLHS: 12-for-21, 231 yards, 5 TDs in 51-22 win over Whale Branch
