October 5, 2004



Jeff Colter

Lawrence High

HT: 5-foot-9

WT: 160

Position: RB-CB

The game: Colter rushed for 238 yards on 25 carries and caught one pass for 38 yards in the Lions' 42-21 victory at Shawnee Mission South. Five of Colter's carries went for 10 yards or more. LHS finished with 433 yards rushing and won its second straight after an 0-3 start.

Coach's comments: "He's and outstanding back," LHS coach Dirk Wedd said. "He gets the maximum yards every carry. The offensive line did an outstanding job, but he got some yards by himself."

Position: RB-DB

The game: Stewart rushed for 275 yards on 35 carries in McLouth's 29-18 victory over Valley Falls. He scored on runs of 8, 50 and 62 yards as the Bulldogs (4-1) bounced back from their first loss.

Coach's comments: "Kevin's a hard-working kid," McLouth coach Harry Hester said. "He's such a great competitor. We try to give him a crease, and he really makes us look good."
