UnioNCounty Football has named Weddington's Will Shipley and Porter Ridge's Cris Capers the players of the week for week nine of the high school football season.
Shipley, the offensive player of the week, had nine carries for 97 yards and one touchdown along with eight receptions for 195 yards and three TDs.
The five-star running back/defensive back continues to display the most efficient and explosive play of just about anyone in 3A North Carolina HS football. Shipley has touched the ball 100 times (99 on offense and one fumble recovery TD on defense) and has scored 19 touchdowns, that's a score every 5.26 times #9 touches the ball!
Cris Capers, the senior defensive lineman from Porter Ridge is our defensive player of the week. Capers registered six total tackles (2 for a loss) and two sacks helping Porter Ridge notch their second shutout of the season.
Congratulations to Will and Cris!
