If you were lucky enough to witness these next plays in person, then good for you. If not, we've got the Top Five Plays starting with number five.
Tioga gets off the snide
The Indians have big post-season dreams, but in order to accomplish them, they're going to have to take care of business in district, and things started off well for the Friday night against Grant. Exiekiel Dupas stepped in front of this pass and then did the dirty work, bringing it back for six.
Moore or less a great play
The ASH Trojans have been frequent members of this list, and Judd Barton has been a huge a reason for their prolonged stay. This pass to Derarld Moore, though, well let's just say Barton needs to give his receiver a hug for this one. Moore makes the outstanding grab, and the Trojans remain undefeated.
'Stangs pull off the upset
We've talked all year long about how wide open district 3-3A could be once district play started. With the Jena Giants coming off their first loss of the season, they were looking to get back on track against a 2-3 Avoyelles squad. That didn't happen, and this 4th and 6 pitch play on the game's first drive set the tone for the rest of the night. Last week's Athlete of the Week Marquis Alexander takes the pitch 7 yards, and Avoyelles pulls out the stunner against Jena.
Pine Prarie says "hello"
The Pine Prarie Panthers (say that five times fast) make their 2018 debut on the list thanks to Kyler Carson and his ability to teleport in front of passes, he steps in front of this one and brings it back for the touchdown. The Panthers would get the victory.
Charlee turns heads with catch
Many has found its way on this list more weeks than not, and with plays like this, they mine as well rent a room and stay for the rest of the season. Zeqhariuss Rhone dialed up his man Jaylon Charlee, and Charlee makes the phenomenal catch using the back of the defender. You don't see that everyday. In fact, you basically never see that. Ever.
Well, that's it
That will do it for another exciting week of high school football. Next week, the temperatures drop but the heat is still on for teams in Cenla as the playoffs get closer.
