PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

Foles, Carr repeat winners of our POW

Mon, Nov 04, 2013

Foles tied an NFL record with 7 TDs Sunday.

MOBILE -- We usually like to spread the wealth when it comes to our Reese's Senior Bowl Players of the Week.  But, it's hard to overlook the performances of quarterbacks Nick Foles and Derek Carr.

Foles torched the Oakland Raiders' defense for 406 yards and an NFL-record tying seven touchdowns on Sunday. The 2012 Senior Bowler from the University of Arizona is our Senior Bowl Alumnus of the Week for the second time this season.

He completed 22-of-28 passes, so the Eagles quarterback actually threw more touchdowns than incompletions in a 49-20 trouncing of the men in black.
 
CARR REVS IT UP, AGAIN
Carr continues to put up video game numbers out West, shredding Nevada for 487 yards and three touchdowns. It was his fifth game over 400 yards in 2013.
 
The senior quarterback -- and younger brother of former Senior Bowler and No.1 draft pick David -- connected on 39-of-55 passes in a 41-23 victory over Nevada. He is the College Senior of the Week for the second time this season.
 
Carr has the Bulldogs (8-0) in the hunt for their first-ever BCS bowl game.

SMITH RUNS WILD FOR ROBERTSDALE
Denzel Smith rushed for 353 yards on 33 carries (10.7 ave) ans scored four touchdowns to lead Robertsdale to a 50-43 win over Faith Academy on Friday Night.
 
Smith scored on runs of 3, 16, 32 and 32 in the shootout. He is our Gulf Coast High School Player of the Week.
