CINCINNATI — It's Week 2 of the 2023 high school football season — and the heat is impacting several games.

While the heat played a role this weekend, plenty of players stepped up and made big moves for their teams.

Here are the Week 2 Player of the Week nominees:

  • Josh Ringer, East Central: The senior running back surpassed the 4,000-yard rushing mark for his career. He had 18 carries for 182 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-7 win over visiting Harrison. He also had three punts for 134 yards (44.7 yards average).
  • Ryan Brass, Elder: The senior quarterback was 11-for-18 passing for 180 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-14 win over visiting Saints Neumann-Goretti (Pa.). He also rushed for 76 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Reece Davis, Milford: The senior wide receiver had nine receptions for 131 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-29 win over host Lebanon. He also had an 89-yard punt return for a touchdown.
  • Brodey Berg, Anderson: The senior had 22 carries for 160 yards and four touchdowns in a 48-14 win over visiting Loveland. He had four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown.

The WCPO 9 Football Friday Game of the Week was the 76th all-time meeting between two storied Northern Kentucky football programs, Highlands and Covington Catholic. Both teams could make a run come postseason time but are in different classes this year.

The game was tied 14-14 at the half, but the second half belonged to the Colonels. They were able to put their rivals away, 35-21.

It feels like Wyoming just can't be stopped in the regular season. Monroe tried to spoil the Cowboys's win streak, but was instead shut out 13-0. Wyoming will go for its 70th consecutive regular season win next week.

UC RB Corey Kiner was in the house for his alma mater's game against Western Hills. The former Mr. Football holds just about every rushing record for Roger Bacon, with seemingly every play feeling like a big one when he was in the backfield. Vince Guyer took a page out of his playbook, helping the Spartans run away with it, winning 39-20.
