USA TODAY HSS Top 5 Stars of Week 5

Record-breaking kicks, lane-opening blocks and a double dose of WOW from a 4-star receiver, topped off with one of the most outstanding catches we’ve seen in high school football…

While two top-10 teams in the Super 25 fell last Friday and Saturday – St. Edward (Ohio) and St. John Bosco (California) – shifting the focus to Tuesday’s release of the latest rankings, our attention turned to the nominees for the HSS stars of the week.

Of the more than 15 dynamic moments that flashed across the film room, these athletes caught our attention the most as they streaked across the stage in the highlight reels.

Standing O to the following:

– Nolan Hauser, K, Hough (Cornelius NC)

– Wyatt Gilmore, TE/EDGE, Rogers Sr. (Minn.)

– Tyler Yoder, CB/SS, Briar Woods High School (Ashburn, Va.)

– Talyn Taylor, WR, Geneva Community (Illinois)

– Perry Thompson, WR, Foley High School (Ala.)

Note from the HSS team: To potentially have an athlete included in our weekly selection, DM highlight videos to USA TODAY High School Sports Instagram or Twitter.
