    School:    Obion Central
    Grade:    Junior
    Height:    6-2

    Pos.: Quarterback

By the numbers: With the Rebels forced into catch-up mode early, and without a complementary ground game, Phipps nonetheless turned in a stellar passing performance in OC’s 42-34 loss to Sikeston. The southpaw signal-caller completed 24-of-41 tries for 336 yards and four touchdowns. Six of Phipps’ connections covered 20 yards or more. His passing yardage total was the most in a game for Obion Central since Wes Moore threw for more than 300 in an outing four different times during the Rebs’ 2002 campaign when he was named as the school’s only Mr. Football finalist.
Sound bite: “The most impressive thing was that he (Phipps) had those numbers despite the fact that Sikeston was dropping everybody they had into coverage because we had no threat running the ball,” OC head coach Shawn Jackson said. “He was patient, he made all his reads and he fit the ball into places where the windows weren’t that big. He threw it 41 times and we only had one interception and he was never sacked. He played about as well as he could.”
HONORABLE MENTION: Mason McGrew, OC junior wide receiver, was Phipps’ favorite target for paydirt passes in Week 1 with three touchdowns among his five catches for 73 yards. Shawn Weaks, OC senior wide receiver, caught six passes for 66 yards and a TD and also connected with Nathan Ward on a 41-yard pass. JaQuay Garmon, SF sophomore quarterback, was 5-for-7 passing with 103 yards and two touchdowns during the Red Devils’ 25-8 besting of West Carroll.
