Top 5 Plays: High School Football Week One

Updated: Monday, August 26 2013, 12:26 AM EDT
The first week of the high school football season displayed some outstanding talent across the mountains.  These are the Top 5 Plays from Week One.

Kickoff time is here! 
Water on the turf could not ruin the fun.
Athleticism all over the field.
Big hits that the quarterback still feels. 
Outstanding catches that bring out loud cheers.

Number Five:  Erwin has one of the most explosive offenses in the state, led by quarterback, Austin Brown who accelerates so fast on this play that he loses his towel.  Brown accounts for 352 yards of total offense and three rushing touchdowns as Erwin beats East Rutherford 47-28.  No towels were hurt in the making of this highlight.

Number Four:  Swain County quarterback, Raymius Smith picking apart the defense of East Henderson.  Smith connects with Jordan Cody who goes 73 yards to the promised land.  Swain County shuts out East Henderson 14-0. 

Number Three:  Owen has an exceptional running game, led by this guy, Jager Gardner.  Size, quickness, strength and breakaway speed!  Gardner goes up the middle against Enka, untouched for the score.  He and his running mate, Zee Johnston combine for 297 yards and four touchdowns.  This game had great plays from both teams.  

Number Two:  On the next offensive possession for Enka, Tommie Holloway turns on the Jets to the far sidelines and just gets out of the reach of Owen's Dante Brown.  Tommie Holloway scampers 70 yards for the score to keep Enka in the ballgame.  But Owen holds on to beat the Jets 36-20.   

Number One:  North Henderson quarterback, Zack Gahagan has committed to play baseball in Chapel Hill.  He has what you call arm strength.  Look at this bomb right on the money to a leaping Corey Foster in the endzone.  But North Henderson falls to Roberson 22-20.
