Barton junior Torrious Burton is the Defensive Player of the Week.
Bear head coach Mike Bush said Burton led the team with nine tackles, broke up two England pass es and caused a fumble.
Bush said he is not looking past Little Rock Episcopal Friday night. “Except for six fumbles Episcopal moved the ball well against Harding Academy (last week),” Bush said.
After the Episcopal game at Little Rock, Barton travels to Searcy Oct. 9 for a showdown against Harding Academy.
Hooten’s picked Harding Academy and Barton first and second in 2-3A.
Bush, like all cautious coaches, isn’t logging in a win against Episcopal before the game is played.
In a dead heat, Central’s Antonio Hughes is the Offensive Player of the Week edging Barton’s Bryan Gauze.
Hughes scored four touchdowns and accumulated 229 yards on seven carries in leading the Cougars to a 54-14 thumping of Paragould.
Gauze scored three touchdowns in Barton’s 45-12 rout of England. Hughes and Gauze supplied the firepower enabling their respective teams to pull even at 2-2 for the season and 1-0 in conference play.
DeSoto placekicking Dylan Mauch belongs in a class by himself after booting a record 48-yard field goal against Deer Creek Friday.
