BGA junior quarterback Nick Semptimphelter threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns in the team’s 49-7 thrashing of visiting Boyd-Buchanan Friday night.
He was also pulled at the half.
So, those statistics represent, well, only one half of football.
Those numbers would be eye-popping for four quarters for football.
You can see where this is going.
Semptimphelter earns our Home Page Player of the Week honors for his electrifying performance on an electrifying night (he was able to manage this despite a lightning delay).
He’s already got 1124 yards and 13 touchdowns on the season, cementing himself as one of the star quarterbacks of the county football season. In his first year under center, the junior couldn’t be off to a better start. He’s carrying the torch for former starter Drew Martin (now with Tennessee Tech) and is helping his team stay undefeated.
They get their first big test of the season this Friday against CPA. If Semptimphelter can put up these kinds of numbers against Ingle Martin’s guys, he might be getting the college calls sooner than later. For now, he’s our Player of the Week for Week 4.
