Bosshart has 68 carries and four touchdowns.

Lauden Wood of St. Croix Central has a league leading 40 tackles. Mondovi's Cody Tomlinson has 235 yards receiving along with three TDs while SCC's Kyle Cress, whom the Cardinals will go up against Friday, is the D-SC's top passer with 435 yards on 42-of-86 completions and seven TDs.
- Prescott faces Somerset Friday who again has the Middle Border Conference's top back in Eric Walczak. He already has 500 yards rushing on 65 carries and seven touchdowns. Prescott's Mark Nahorniak burst into the top 10 of MBC running backs with a 234-performance at Amery and Ellsworth's Tanner Eggenberger is also in the top five.

That's eight more grabs than Baldwin-Woodville's Jake Keefer, the University of Wisconsin recruit.

Keefer, however, does lead the league in tackles with 36 including a sack, a TFL and an interception.
- Elmwood's Jesse McKune remains the top back in the Lakeland South with 454 yards on 71 carries and seven TDs.

PC's Chase Luebker is third in receiving while Elmwood's Brian Tolonen is third in passing.
