Week Eight Players of the Week

Bryce Torneden, Lawrence Free State: If you track Free State's progress through the season, you can tell the Firebirds go as Torneden goes. Torneden was one of the league's best players in the early portion of the schedule (Free State began 2-1), slumped in its mid-portion (Free State went 0-2) but he's picked back up, of late (Free State's gone 3-0). On Friday he played flawless, completing eight of his 13 passes for 135 yards and three touchdowns, and rushing for 114 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries.

David Burton, Olathe Northwest: Burton has been the unsung hero of Olathe Northwest's 5-3 campaign. He made a statement on Friday, recording 19 tackles and an interception, helping the Ravens to a 34-7 victory over Olathe East. With the impressive effort, Burton climbed to the top of the league in tackles, with 110. The most impressive thing about those 110 tackles? Seventy-three have been solo.

Week Eight Coach of the Week

Ben Barlett, SM North: In week seven Barlett helped his team to slay the dragon that was the Indians' 25-game losing streak, and in week eight he coached his team to a victory which earned them a playoff berth. SM North was left high and dry just weeks before the season began, when former head coach Don Simmons unexpectedly bolted for a coaching job in Arkansas. Barlett, a SM North alum, and assistant coach, stepped up and accepted the interim head coaching tag for the 2014 season. Through eight games, he's already won two games, which is the same amount of wins the Indians combined for in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
