Baston and Hendricks are the Daily Sun's Co-Players of the Week.

Baston scored on runs of 52, 1, 19, 20 and 32 and finished the night with 199 yards on 16 carries, averaging a whopping 12.4 yards a carry to lead the Tigers to a 2-0 start, their first since 2015.
Hendricks ended up with 358 yards in Frost's 50-42 victory over Meridian (37 yards short of the school record) and scored on runs of 1, 85, 5, 46, 12, 55, and 17.
