KUSA — ***UPDATE: Levi Shean of Stratton/Liberty football won the Play of the Week with his crushing hit in the 6-man title game, earning 80 percent of the vote.
We have now hit the final week of the high school football season. Naturally, every player on the remaining teams has stepped up their level of play, and the Prep Rally Honor Roll is benefiting from some of the best football in the remaining weeks.
The 5A semifinal game between Valor Christian and Grandview provided us three of this week's top plays. The Eagles came in at No. 5, with a game-saving interception. Grandview scored a touchdown in the final minute of play, and was looking to tie things up with a two-point conversion. Instead, Chase Lopez came up with the pick to propel Valor to the 5A state championship where they'll face Cherry Creek this Saturday.
The No. 4 play comes from the 8-man state championship game between Sedgwick County and Hoehne. Sedgwick County's Angel Nunez kicked off for the Cougars, and after a fumble by their opponents, Nunez found himself with the scoop and score. Sedgwick County won its fourth straight 8-man championship.
This week's No. 3 play is good from 54 yards out. Grandview's Justin Crounse split the uprights on a 54-yard attempt in the 5A semifinal game.
Turn it up for No. 2. Stratton/Liberty's Levi Shean dealt a devastating blow to Kit Carson in the 6-man title game. Seriously, the hit is one of the loudest we've heard. The Knighted Eagles kept the hits coming, winning their state championship 57-18.
Finally, we'll return to the Valor-Grandview game for this week's top play. Grandview's Trevor Greenlee made a heads up play, blocking a punt before picking up the ball and rushing it into the end zone for a Wolves score.
We've ranked them, now we'd like to hear what you think should be our top play!
