Top 5 Player Ratings
Player ratings are subject to change on a week-to-week basis

1. Brad Strauss, Lawrence, Quarterback
Week Three Stats: 17-of-32 passing, 199 yards, 1 TD; 14 carries, 117 yards, 2 TDs

Strauss had another stellar game, eclipsing the 100-yard mark in both passing and rushing totals, in addition to three combined touchdowns.  Among the league leaders, he ranks second in passing with 710 yards, seventh in rushing with 275 yards, and first in total offense with a combined 985 yards.

2. Treshawn Root, Olathe North, Running Back
Week Three Stats: 11 carries, 195 yards, 3 TDs

Root replaced his running mate Orange Mooney in the two slot after spending the week two rankings on the honorable mention list.  Root boasts a per carry average of 10.65 yards and he's ranked second in the league in rushing with 426 yards.

3. Willie Cauley, Wide Receiver, Olathe Northwest
Week Three Stats: 5 receptions, 95 yards, 1 TD

Cauley came within five yards of claiming his third-consecutive 100-yard receiving game in a row.  He leads the league in receiving yards and touchdown receptions with 339 and 7, respectively. 

4. Gabe Guild, Running Back, SM South
Week Three Stats: 21 carries, 117 yards, 1 TD; 1 reception, 18 yards

Guild continues to be a workhorse back for the Raiders, churning out another 100+ yard rushing performance, his third in as many games, against Lawrence Free State.  He leads all league rushers with 461 rushing yards on 64 carries.

5. Elliot Faerber, Wide Receiver, SM East
Week Three Stats: 3 receptions, 47 yards

Faerber is in danger of slipping out of the top five.  After an outstanding performance in week one, his last two games have been average, at best.  Teams are focusing their top defensive back tandems on him, which has made passing to fellow SM East receiver Connor Rellihan the more conventional choice to pass to for the Lancers in their past two games.

Honorable Mention: Orange Mooney, Olathe North; Dalton Rook, Olathe Northwest; Charles Jackson, Lawrence; Connor Middleton, Olathe Northwest; Alex Forslund, SM South; Tanner Gentry, Olathe North; Mason Perez, SM North; Kyle McFarland, Lawrence Free State; Ryan Patterson, Lawrence Free State

I find it funny (as in "that's interesting") that neither Olathe South, #2 in the Power Rankings, nor Olathe East, #3, have any players even in honorable mention of the Player ratings.

^Im glad Im not the only one who thinks that as well.

Assuming they can beat BVN. Well I suppose the O North cheerleaders could beat BVN so probably safe there.
