Trussville Tribune writers Erik Harris, Chris Yow and Kyle Parmley will be awarding Players of the Week in each high school football matchup of the 2015 season. Players or position groups will be awarded based on more than just statistics. The awarded player(s) will also be evaluated based on the timeliness of their performance. Tribune Players of the Week will be announced weekly on Tribune Sports Live.
Clay-Chalkville 53, Hewitt-Trussville 35
With sophomore quarterback Davis Burgin making his first career start, Hewitt-Trussville looked to its Ole Miss commit to spearhead its offensive attack. Jarrion Street showed his SEC pedigree, carrying the ball 26 times for 171 yards and two touchdowns against Clay-Chalkville. He gave the Huskies their first lead of the contest with a 75-yard stroll down the home sideline shortly after teammate Grayson Cash went 79 yards to the end zone. Street is awarded by Erik Harris.

For the Cougars, it was another SEC bound senior making noise that’s been heard by countless college coaches. Wideout T.J. Simmons, an Alabama pledge, was not to be covered by the Hewitt-Trussville secondary. He scored three times in the first half. The first on a 45-yard crossing pattern and the second he secured in traffic on a 34-yard heave to the end zone. Simmons finished the night with six receptions for 130 yards and four scores. He is awarded by Erik Harris.
Pinson Valley 16, Minor 26
Pinson Valley’s two-way standout, Jay Woods, has garnered his second Player of the Week award in a loss to Minor. The South Alabama verbal reached the end zone on a 50-yard punt return, aiding a sluggish offensive night at Willie Adams Stadium. He also struck at the defensive end, pulling down an interception that halted a scoring opportunity for the guests. Woods is awarded by Kyle Parmley.
