For the third time in the last four weeks, East Central running back Tony Brown is the Sun Herald offensive player of the week.
The senior scored a record eight touchdowns in a 77-32 rout over South Pike in the Class 4A state quarterfinals on Friday night at Magnolia. He scored on runs of 2, 4, 5, 3, 18, 6 and 12 yards.
Brown, who made the Sun Herald’s All-South Mississippi team last year, finished the game with 21 carries for 149 yards.
The unbeaten Hornets (12-0) travel to Poplarville in the 4A South State finals the day after Thanksgiving.
