Defensive player of the week: Hillcrest's Tony White
What he did: White did a little of everything for Hillcrest in a 28-22 upset of previously unbeaten Woodrow Wilson. He opened the scoring with a 59-yard touchdown reception, and he scored a defensive touchdown in the third quarter on a 34-yard interception return - his third interception of the game.
Who is he?: A 6-0, 173-pound senior safety/wide receiver.
The stats: 3 interceptions, including one he returned for a TD; 3 solo tackles; 6 assists; 2 pass breakups; 2 catches for 64 yards and a TD on offense.
He said it: "I'd seen that play on film before, and the receiver was looking at me like it was coming my way. I read his body movement, and as he made his last cut, I looked in at the quarterback, then ... made the play." - on his TD return
Coach said it: "He couldn't have been any bigger all the way around." - Andy Todd
Did you know? White plays point guard and shooting guard on the basketball team. One of his older brothers, Gennera Knight, played safety for Hillcrest and graduated in 2008.
