Each week after watching the film and going through the stats, we would like to recognize standouts and award “Game Balls” for their performance.  Here is a group of players that earned the PrepRedzone IN Game Balls for week 4…

  • QB Gehrig Slunaker, Mount Vernon

For the first time this season, we are awarding a game ball to a player that was also featured in our "Impact Players to Watch" for the week. That gets me excited because we knew what Slunaker had to do in order for Mount Vernon to end New Palestine’s 65 game regular season winning streak, and he did all of that and more.  He was 20/30 for 272 yards and 3 TD’s through the air.  He also chipped in another 31 yards and a TD on the ground.  There may have been bigger stats at the QB position this week, but it can be argued that no individual player in the state led their team to a bigger win during week 4.  One thing that really stands out about this performance is the way Slunaker and his teammates were able to overcome adversity when New Pal returned the opening kickoff for a TD.
