Football: The Best Performance of Week 3 

By Anthony Chiang

We are always trying to come up with new ideas at PBGametime. This time, we are going to start dedicating a blog post to the best football performance of the week for the rest of the season. For our inaugural version of “The Best Performance of the Week,” Palm Beach Central running back Tommy McDonald earned the honor. McDonald led the Broncos to a victory over West Boca Raton with an incredible performance.

Here is a breakdown of what McDonald did to earn the award:

Tommy McDonald, Palm Beach Central, RB:

The performance: The senior ran for 212 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries in a 40-20 victory over West Boca Raton. McDonald also added one reception for 15 yards in the contest.

Season stats: McDonald has amassed 436 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 61 carries in three games this season. He is averaging an impressive 7.15 yards per carry.

In the coach’s words: “Tommy has such great vision,” Palm Beach Central coach Rod Harris said. “He played really well, reading his blocks and making good decisions.”

In the player’s words: “Coach Rod Harris called a great game tonight,” Tommy McDonald said. “The run was there the whole night and we took advantage of it. The line blocked well and opened the holes for us to run through.”
