Name a football player of the week.

WA: Grand Lake running back Levi Murrell ran for 134 yards and scored on a 15-yard touchdown run to lead the Hornets to a 13-8 win over East Iberville in a Class 1A semifinal.

RA: Visibly limping in the second half after an injury late in the second quarter, Lake Charles College Prep quarterback Dillon Simon put on a gutsy performance and nearly lead the Trailblazers to the Class 3A finals. In his final game, the McNeese signee completed 20 of 28 passes for 216 yards and four touchdowns.
