After a one-year hiatus from the playoffs, the Henderson Lions have come back in a big way. Henderson captured its first district title since 2000, and is playing for a regional title this weekend.

And Lions senior quarterback Zane Boles has been the primary catalyst.

Boles accounted for six touchdowns in Henderson's 60-43 regional semifinal playoff win over Jasper last Saturday in Lufkin. For his efforts, Boles is the Queen Offensive Player of the Week, following in the footsteps of Waskom's Junebug Johnson, who earned the honor a week ago.

In the shootout playoff win, Boles (6-5, 210) completed 8 of 10 passes for 208 yards and three touchdowns, while running for a team-high 110 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries.

Boles' scoring runs covered 2, 12 and 3 yards, while all three of his touchdown passes went to Trestan Ebner from 53, 1 and 39 yards out. Ebner finished with six catches for 151 yards.

Henderson (11-2) will have perhaps its biggest challenge of the season Saturday against top-ranked and unbeaten Navasota (13-0) in the Class 4A Division I Region III final. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. from Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium. Queen Offensive Players of the Week
