It’s another award in what’s been a busy month of nominations for the Plant City area.
Plant City Raiders running back Reggie Bush Jr. was named Prime Time Preps’ Hillsborough County Player of the Week following his standout performance against Plant High School two weeks ago.
In Plant City’s 31-24 victory over the Panthers on Oct. 22, Bush totaled 265 rushing yards and four touchdowns, the last coming in the form of an 65-yard game-winning run.
“It’s one of the best [performances] that I’ve seen,” said head coach James Booth after the game. “Reggie’s been patient all year and a lot of teams have kind of been loading the box and daring us to throw. So this was his opportunity to really have a lighter box and he made them pay. I thought that he did a great job, ran physical, showcased the speed that he has and I think that it’s one of the top Plant City performances that I’ve seen coaching.”
The award comes just two weeks after Plant City linebacker/safety Cole Highsmith garnered the award following his own standout performance in a win over the Bloomingdale Bulls on Oct. 8.
On the season, Bush has totaled 821 yards and seven touchdowns on 111 carries.
