Congratulations are in order for this school year's first Hogoheegee state champions: Holston's golf team. Led by senior Conrad Thacker and Peyton Garrett, the Cavs earned first place in the state golf tournament this week in Front Royal, VA. This marks the school's first ever state championship of any kind. Other team members Josh Street, Wes Roberts, Devin Keith, and Dalton Thomson also put forth good performances to lift Holston past Parry McCluer, William Campbell, and Galax in team scores.
This week was another doozy. The panel was faced with the tall task of deciding the best player from a weekend of excellent Hogo performances. Last week's winner, Jordan Corvin, continued his recent stint of herculean performances with a 40 carry night against Chilhowie. His teammate, Chase Heldreth, lit up the skies with three touchdown passes in the same game. Meanwhile in Wytheville, Trey Skeens reminded everyone that George Wythe is still a force as he put up big numbers on just a few touches against Northwood. Down at Patrick Henry, a couple of fellas from Damascus churned out enormous yardage and netted five touchdowns on 22 combined carries.
So who won this week's player of the week?

Last week I got to check out PH and RR for the first time this year. Three things that stood out to me for each team:
1) Jordan Corvin reminds me of Tyler Caudill in almost every way.
2) Chase Heldreth is a pretty good quarterback. He's definitely related to Matt.
3) Justin Ball is always open
For Patrick Henry
1) All good things for PH funnel through Zach Wright
2) They are a runningback by committee type team.
3) They have some speed you wouldn't expect
Last week, Trey Crook won the honors after a tight contest with Holston's Seth Thomas. The two quarterbacks put on a show and made it awfully hard for the panel to choose who was better. This week, the panel had it pretty easy. One district runner put on a show all by himself and shows no signs of slowing down anytime this season.
So who won this week's POTW honors?
