1. Brad Strauss, Quarterback, Lawrence
Week Four Stats: 17-of-23 passing, 239 yards, 2 TDs; 5 carries, 37 yards

Strauss continues to be the cog that keeps LHS in motion, and with the potential loss of running back Charles Jackson, Strauss will have to play an even more important role.  He leads the league in total offense with 1,287 yards and 10 touchdowns.

2. Treshawn Root, Running Back, Olathe North
Week Four Stats: 11 carries, 209 yards, 1 TD

Root's yards per carry average looks like a typo at 12.45, but it's not--he's just performed that well this season.  In the last two weeks alone he's rushed for 404 yards on a mere 22 carries (that average sits at 18.36 yards per carry).  Root now leads the league in rushing with 635 yards.

3. Willie Cauley, Wide Receiver, Olathe Northwest
Week Four Stats: 7 receptions, 133 yards, 1 TD

His team has suffered two straight losses, but Cauley hasn't been the reason for it.  In fact, his continued top production has been more impressive because it has come against better teams.  Cauley ranks first among league receivers in receptions with 27, receiving yards with 472, and touchdowns with eight.

4. Orange Mooney, Running Back, Olathe North
Week Four Stats: 17 carries, 202 yards, 2 TDs

Mooney climbs into the rankings after another stellar performance running the ball.  He ranks second in the league in rushing behind Root, and he is tied with Connor Middleton for the most rushing touchdowns with seven.

5. Gabe Guild, Running Back, SM South
Week Four Stats: 15 carries, 100 yards, 2 TDs; 3 catches, 28 yards

Guild hangs on in the Top 5 Player Ratings after a week where he was, quite frankly, one of the few bright-spots in SM South's 35-point loss to Olathe North.  Guild is tops among league running backs in terms of total offense, as his pass catching ability has added another dimension to his game.

Honorable Mention: Elliot Faerber, SM East; John Kelsh, Olathe East; Kyle McFarland, Lawrence Free State; Tanner Gentry, Olathe North; Jordan Bruce, Olathe North; Connor Middleton, Olathe Northwest

No one will be able to stop Olathe North's running back tandem of Mooney and Root. End of story.

How about a 342 yd - 3 TDs night for SM South's Gabe Guild?! That might do the trick!
