Top Indy-Area Gridiron Performers for Week 5

Players of the Week

Reginald Lipscomb, Pike: With 131 yards and three touchdowns on just 12 carries – including a 57-yard score – Lipscomb was one of many Red Devils who stepped up in the team’s 46-28 victory over Class 6A No. 2 and unbeaten Lawrence Central. It was a big win for coach Jimmy Graves’ squad, which narrowly fell to Carmel a week earlier, 21-18.

 

Derrick Ozobu, Brebeuf: Ozobu went 21-of-32 for 292 yards and two touchdowns in the Braves’ 17-14 triumph over previously unbeaten Culver, including the go-ahead 27-yard fourth-quarter score to Jacob Pressler, who had both TDs and 169 yards in 10 catches. Ozobu now has 1,025 yards and 9 TDs for the season.

 

Landon Watson, Shelbyville: Watson had 382 yards and four touchdowns passing – including three TDs to Damon Lux – and added 60 yards and two more scores on the ground, to help push the Bears to 4-1 with a 41-14 victory over Greenfield-Central. Watson nearly doubled his yardage output for the season in one night.

 

Joe Callahan, Sheridan: Callahan’s 164 yards and three TDs in 14 carries were part of an offensive onslaught, as the Blackhawks bumped their record to 4-1 with a 63-8 win over Clinton Prairie. Callahan has 786 yards and 9 TDs this season, with 157.4 yards per game and a 6.6 per carry average.

 

Teams of the Week

 

Roncalli (5-0): The 5A No. 1 Rebels set a new program record with their 20th straight victory, in a 38-7 domination of 2A No. 3 Scecina. Cameron Fath and Conley Jones both had defensive TDs, while the unit held Scecina to minus-34 yards rushing. Opponents are only scoring 11.6 points per game against the Rebels this season.

 

New Palestine (5-0): With a 41-21 win over previously undefeated Pendleton Heights, the 5A No. 2 Dragons won their 41st consecutive regular-season game.
