This week we turn our attention to the football field. Tell us in the poll below: Which St. Charles County football player had the best Week 5?
Brody Allen—Francis Howell Central: The Howell Central Spartans finally broke through and picked up a win in Week 5 and a large reason was the play of quarterback Brody Allen. In the Spartans 34-0 blanking of Howell North, Allen had his hands in two touchdowns—one with his arm and one with his legs. He was just 6-for-14 throwing the ball, but he did complete at 6-yard TD pass. He really showed off on the ground. With 16 carries, Allen racked up 123 yards (7.7 yards a carry). He lone touchdown came on a 26-yard first quarter run.
Shane Barrett—Fort Zumwalt East: The Lions' sophomore signal caller led East to a 38-26 win against rival Zumwalt North. The win pushed the Lions to 4-1 on the season. Against North, Barrett was a difference maker. He carried the ball 27 times for 110 yards (4.1 yards a carry) and two touchdowns. With his arm, he was 6-for-12 for 127 yards and a passing score.
Sean Corrigan—St. Dominic: St. Dominic quarterback Sean Corrigan threw the ball just twice against Borgia, but he them count. In the Crusaders' 27-14 win, Corrigan was 2-for-2 passing for 24 yards and a touchdown. Along with the TD toss, Corrigan was impressive carrying the ball. He ran the ball just 14 times, but amassed 143 yards—a mighty 10.2 yards per carry. He also had a late score to help seal the win for St. Dominic.
Armand Keely—Orchard Farm: Orchard Farm came up huge in Week 5 with a 40-6 thrashing of Winfield. A big part of the win? The running ability of Armand Keely. Keely only run the ball 16 times against Winfield, but he made them all count. He picked up 101 yards (6.3 yards a carry) and, more impressively, three scores. He also caught one pass for 17 yards.
