ScoutSouth.com: Stars of Alabama


Posted Oct 17, 2007


Week seven is in the record book. Hoover continued their "of-late" dominance of Vestavia Hills. Spain Park had an offensive flood against Oak Mountain. Decatur outlasted Russellville in overtime, and Lanett maneuvered a masterful comeback against Loachapoka. ScoutSout.com presents the Stars of Alabama for player performances.




ScoutSouth.com Player of the week: Jeremy Yates

Jeremy Yates
Quarterback
Colbert Heights

Senior Jeremy Yates completed 28-of-41 passing attempts for 340 yards and three touchdowns. Yates found his undefeated squad behind in the fourth quarter and rallied his team to force overtime. Colbert Heights defeated Elkmont 27-24.

Colton Madison
Quarterback/Athlete
Berry

Senior Colton Madison did a little of everything Friday night against St. Bernard. It was not the shear numbers he put up as much as it was the versatility. Madison recorded 354 all-purpose yards including seven touchdowns. He went 10-of-14 in passing for 191 yards with four of those touchdowns. He rushed for 49 yards on nine carries for another three touchdowns. Madison also returned three kicks for 114 yards. The offensive specialist put on his special teams hat and converted two point after attempts and two two-point conversions.

Dez Polk
Wide Receiver/Running Back/Defensive Back
Speake

The junior athlete recorded 298 all-purpose yards against region opponent Shoals Christian. He recorded 179 yards rushing on 10 carries. Dez Polk scored on touchdowns of 7, 44, 50 and 56 yards. He also recorded 129 yards in kick returns.

Morgan Ogilvie
Quarterback
Mountain Brook

Senior Morgan Ogilvie had a great game in the seventh game of the season, but consider he missed part of the first game and all but the last two games with a broken leg. The Spartans struggled mightily without him. His return last week resulted in a much more competitive match than expected with Vestavia Hills (27-20). It is clear the young Ogilvie is the offensive spark and leader who makes the difference for this squad with 269 yards passing, 19 completions for 22 attempts and three touchdowns. Mountain Brook defeated Homewood 42-20.

Troy Hutcherson
Running Back
Geneva

Troy Hutcherson recorded 384 all-purpose yards with five touchdowns. He rushed for 211 yards and added 87 yards receiving on two catches in a win over region foe, Elba.

Jeff Ward
Jermaine Swanigan
Josh Guthrie
Mitchell Spates
Defense
Walker

Walker's defensive squad had a productive night in their shut out of region rival Gardendale 27-0. Ward intercepted three passes and recorded a fumble recovery. Swanigan recorded 12 tackles, Guthrie 11 tackles, and Spates added 10 tackles.

Tyler Messer
Linebacker
Spring Garden

Tyler Messer recorded 13 tackles and one interception in their win over last 2006 state championship runner-up Cedar Bluff.

Cameron Cross
Running Back
Madison County

Tyler Caldwell
Quarterback
Cullman

Cullman hasn't come close to losing this season, and Tyler Caldwell demonstrated why with his passing efficiency. Caldwell completed 20-of-24 pass attempts for 265 yards and five touchdowns in a win over region opponent Mortimer Jordan.

Michael Williams
Defensive End
Pickens County

Michael Williams recorded eight tackles and three sacks in a 22-12 win over Hale County. Williams will stay close to home upon graduation in 2008 because of his commitment to play football for the University of Alabama.

Cody Wells
Quarterback
Spain Park

Spain Park finally found their footing this week and produced an offensive flood. Cody Wells went 14-of-22 for 266 yards and a touchdown in a much needed 48-7 win over a once-defeated Oak Mountain squad.
