Shon Carson
Running Back, 5-9, 195 lbs.

There's not much teams have been able to do with Carson (senior) this season. It's been that way his entire career, and Friday night he rushed 22 times for 211 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-7 win over Kingstree.

Justin Worley
Quarterback, 6-4, 194 lbs.
Rock Hill-Northwestern

It's like a broken record...Worley has been on the list almost every week. Speaking of broken records Worley became the state's first player to ever surpass the 11,000 yards and also owns the record for most career touchdown passes with 131. Worley put up more Playstation-like numbers going 33-45 for 429 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-21 win over Clover. This could be Northwestern's season as they've been runners-up in the AAAA Division 2 state championship game the past two seasons and are currently undefeated still heading down the stretch.

Wide Receiver, 6-1, 190 lbs.
Woodruff

Johnson (senior) has been on the radar for quite a while and was out with an injury early on, but he's come back stronger than ever.

The 12 receptions is a school record for the Wolverines, and Johnson also found the endzone three times on the night.

Shaq Roland
Safety/Wide Receiver, 6-1, 180 lbs.
Lexington

Roland (junior) continues to showcase his talents every week. Although Scout.com projects him as an elite safety on the next level Roland lines up all over the field for his Lexington squad. On Friday he rushed for 125 yards and four touchdowns, had 108 yards receiving, and intercepted a pass from his safety position. Already rated four-stars many expect Roland to earn his fifth star before it's all said and done.

Demetrius Williams
Running Back, 5-10, 175 lbs.
Bamberg-Ehrhardt

Williams (junior) continues to impress each week as he's already piled up some impressive verbal offers to his resume. In an intense rivalry game with Allendale Fairfax, Williams was the difference as he rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns in the 13-0 victory.
