Sportsline Player of the Week: Scotlandville's Levi Lewis, Walker's Jacobi Scott (Week 9)

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

For the second to last week of the regular season, there is not one, but two Sportsline Players of the Week. 

The first being a player who already won the honor twice in 2015. Scotlandville senior quarterback Levi Lewis threw for 14 completions and 114 yards against Live Oak but used his running ability to rally the fourth-ranked Hornets from a 10-point second half deficit.

Lewis had 14 carries for 135 more yards and scored all of Scotlandville's touchdowns in a dramatic 28-24 victory that kept his team unbeaten with one game to go in the regular season. 

"The things he does with his arm and his legs. He always wins with his feet," said Scotlandville head coach Lavanta Davis. "If things are covered, he can win with his feet. Obviously, he ran for four touchdowns last week against a Live Oak team that gave us everything we can handle."

"That's what I love to do. People ask me 'You don't get tired of practice? You don't get tired of these games each week?' If you love something, you're going to keep on doing it, and that's just how I am," Lewis said. 

Sharing Sportsline Player of the Week with Lewis is Walker quarterback Jacobi Scott, who sparked his team to 70 points in a blowout of Denham Springs.

Scott averaged more than 25 yards per pass completion, connecting on 15 of 25 attempts for a whopping 386 yards and six touchdowns. He had a seventh touchdown, rushing as the Cats put an end to a 10-game losing streak in the series between Livingston Parish rivals. 

"He's progressed as much as any player I've been around at any position, and that's truly a credit to him and his work ethic. Everything that kid has he's earned it," said Walker head coach Brandon Lawley.

"It builds me up. It keeps me going, and I just feel like if I can keep the offense rolling no one can stop us," Scott said. "I feel like it's a big responsibility of mine to keep everyone rolling, keep everybody head up, give everybody a chance to keep the ball in their hands."
