The Prime Time pick
WR Agiye Hall, Sr., Bloomingdale
The game came down to the final play. The chance to complete a comeback was reduced to a few seconds.
Tre Simmons eluded defenders before heaving the ball to the end zone.
And there was Hall, determined to make the winning play.
The Alabama commit got into prime post position before leaping to make a catch while three defenders converged on him. Moments later, the official threw both hands in the air, signaling a touchdown.
Game over. The Bulls beat Tampa Bay Tech 25-22.
Hall finished with 107 yards on eight catches, none bigger than the one he made at the end to help Bloomingdale remain undefeated.
The fans’ pick
RB Joquez Smith, So., Jesuit
When Ricky Parks transferred to Gaither this offseason, Smith knew he would be the Tigers’ primary ball carrier.
In three starts, Smith has proved he is more than capable of handling the workload. He has rushed for 331 yards, the fifth-highest total among area backs.
Last week, Smith ran for 112 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Jesuit to a 25-14 come-from-behind win over Berkeley Prep. He did more than just carry the ball. Smith also is showing he is a dependable receiver with a season-high four catches for 32 yards.
The fans thought highly of his performance. Smith had more than 44 percent of the votes (3,503) to finish ahead of Robinson’s Myron Thomas, who had more than 32 percent (2,562 votes).
