Offensive player of the week (11/05): Lancaster's DeMarcus Ayers
What he did: Ayers did a little bit of everything in leading Lancaster to a 51-14 rout of previously undefeated Ennis. He threw for two touchdowns, ran for one and caught another. The win created a three-way tie for first place in District 15-4A.
Who he is: A 5-11, 170-pound senior quarterback.
The stats: 92 passing yards, two touchdowns; 100 rushing yards, one touchdown; 22 receiving yards, one touchdown.
He said it: “We had to get our mojo back. We had to keep our defense off the field and score points. We were prepared to come out and dominate.”
Coach said it: “It’s really a luxury having a guy like Demarcus. He puts pressure on opponents to try and decide what exactly they’ll get when we put him in different positions.” — Chris Gilbert
