For the first time in recent memory, the recipient of our award is an underclassman. The winner is Central QB Malachi Brown. The quarterback had his best performance to date. This sophomore’s biggest strength lies in running the ball. And that’s what he did all Friday night. He went up, around and through the Spartans’ defense en route to more than 200 yards rushing and a pair of running scores. Add to it,135 yards passing and the Bobcats’ offense has found itself a balanced attack.
