Big time players, make big time plays.
Here are five players that shined bright under those Friday night lights in Week 6:
Player of the week: Euless Trinity's Courage Keihn – RB, senior
Coming off an ankle injury that kept him out of action for multiple weeks, Euless Trinity's Courage Keihn played at full speed in the Trojans' 21-20 win over rival Southlake Carroll.

Frisco Reedy's Dominic McCorry – S, senior
