Receiving 550 of the 730 votes, Offensive Player of the Week for Week 1 is Jocquez Bruce from South-Doyle. Bruce carried the ball 19 times for a total of 225 yards against Heritage. Bruce said his first touchdown was his most proud moment of the game.
"We were going up the middle at first so they started blitzing a lot of people. They gave me a stretch to the outside, so I went to the outside and my receivers were blocking well. I had seen the hole and I hit it, hard cut and gone. I used my speed; touchdown," said Bruce.
However, he racked up three of the four touchdowns South-Doyle had Friday night. The Cherokees won 26-7 over Heritage.
