2023 PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
Jordan High School
Last week fans witnessed an incredible game as the Jordan Warriors defeated the Morton Ranch Mavericks 52-49 in the final game of the season. Not only was it a great game, but there was a standout performance as junior wide receiver Andrew Marsh hauled in 8 receptions for 240 yards and 5 touchdowns of 45, 9, 19, 70 and 43 yards. The last one coming in the final 3 minutes. He also helped convert a pivotal 2-point conversion in the 4th quarter.
The win helped the Warriors finish 4th in district and earn a playoff spot against Fort Bend Hightower.
“It is not surprising that Andrew received this honor. Andrew’s commitment to improving himself as an athlete is extremely consistent both on campus and independently. He is a true student of the game and refines his craft as a wide receiver with intention every day.”

Friendswood High School
2023 was a season of considerable change for Brock, who wrapped up the year by completing 33 of 51 passes for a school-record 519 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 45 yards and two scores in a 48-47 win over Magnolia West.
Hampered by injuries last season, Brock packed on 40 pounds during the offseason and made it through the season unscathed while picking up the fundamentals of new coach Jordan Johnson’s balanced offense. He had just four interceptions in 267 attempts with 25 touchdowns and proved to recruiters he can play quarterback in college if given the opportunity, his coach says.
“Brock has gone above and beyond what we asked of him. He was adaptable in learning a new system and flourishing in it, and he’s involved the other players around him. It’s been all positive for him.”
