Charles Chaney
Max Middleton (middle) had an explosive junior year in a new offense. He should have a banner year as a senior.

Each week we are going to select players from around Butler County for their performances on Friday night. Here are Week 1’s best performances.

The Senior has shown who will step up and try to replace Xavier Bell as he went off in Week 1. He caught eight passes for 179 yards and a touchdown.

Ryan Andrews – Augusta

The Senior was instrumental in the late comeback against Field Kindley. He ran for 77 yards and a touchdown but he also caught four passes for 73 yards and a touchdown that brought the score to within 13.
