Marshall’s Cam Haller the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week
It would be hard to find a player in East Texas who has had a bigger impact on his team's offensive performance so far this season than Marshall's Cam Haller.
And last Friday night, he delivered once more.
Haller added to his East Texas-leading touchdown total by rushing for five scores while adding a passing touchdown in Marshall's 56-28 win over Arkansas High. And for his efforts, he is the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week, following Liberty-Eylau quarterback Ke'Mon Freeman.
The Marshall junior standout, who is primarily used as the Mavericks' running quarterback out of the shotgun, rushed for 184 yards on 16 carries, and added a 40-yard touchdown completion. Haller scored on runs of 1, 5, 13, 7, and 22 yards.
For the season, Haller has run for 415 yards and 13 touchdowns on only 38 attempts, meaning he scores roughly on one out of every three carries. He has also gone 5-for-5 passing on the year for 176 yards and two scores.
Haller (5-10, 200) is among the primary catalysts for the Mavericks' 3-0 start to the season, Marshall's first since 2008.
He and his Marshall teammates continue their season at home Friday night against Hallsville (2-1) in the District 15-5A opener for both teams.
