Friday's 6A state quarterfinal matchup between the Cougars of Lakeville South and the Mustangs from Mounds View was a physical and exciting 38-14 game that featured two of Minnesota's best big school competitors facing off for a chance to go to U.S. Bank Stadium and continue their quest's for a 6A Minnesota state championship. Within the 38-14 final score some offensive studs from both squads impressed me enough to earn them the state quarterfinal edition of Northstar Football New's "Offensive Players of the Game." Whether slinging dimes all over the field, running the rock like your life depended on it, or opening holes big enough for a Mack truck to drive through, these "Offensive Players of the Game" balled out. Check out who earned NFN's awards below. Hudl recap from the game: http://www.hudl.com/v/2CKX5F

1) Cole Stenstrom (6'1, 197 lb.) threw one of the best balls I've seen covering MN prep football. The Mounds View QB1 could make any throw on the field and did so all night for the Mustangs. The senior almost single handily kept Mounds View in the game with both his feet and his arm, and he had so much zip on the ball I could almost hear it whistling in the cold Minnesota
