Daily Herald report

St. Charles North senior quarterback Mike Hohensee and Hinsdale South senior linebacker Charles Franklin have earned Daily Herald MVP honors for their performances in Week 4 of the high school football season.

OFFENSE

Mike Hohensee, St. Charles North: How does a quarterback bounce back from throwing 2 interceptions against his school's archrival? By tying that same game with a late-fourth quarter bomb and winning it in overtime with his fifth touchdown pass. The son of a former Bears and USFL quarterback, this 6-foot-1, 195-pound senior completed 29 of 45 passes for 429 yards, including a 42-yard strike to tie it and a 5-yarder in overtime to lift the North Stars to a 35-34 victory.

Ethan Greenfield, Lakes: The second-year starting running back is enjoying a breakout season, evident again by his performance against Wauconda. The senior rushed for 237 yards and scored 5 touchdowns, including one on a 26-yard reception. He had TD runs of 7, 70, 81 and 37 yards, as the Eagles won 38-10 to improve to 4-0 and 2-0 in the Northern Lake County Conference.

Matt Kentgen, Maine West: In a game dominated by defense, this senior tight end found a way to be productive all night. Kentgen finished with 7 catches for 109 yards and ended up scoring on 12- and 26-yard receptions as the visiting Warriors topped Wheeling 14-6.

Payton Thorne, Naperville Central: With the Redhawks trailing 37-28 in the fourth quarter, Thorne rallied his team to victory with a pair of touchdown passes -- including the game-winner in the final minute. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior quarterback completed 20 of 32 passes for 282 yards and 4 touchdowns, and he rushed for 43 yards.

DEFENSE

Charles Franklin, Hinsdale South: The Hornets reclaimed the Rebel Cannon with a 31-17 West Suburban Gold victory over Downers South thanks to 4 interceptions, including 2 by Franklin. The 5-foot-6, 163-pound senior linebacker returned both for touchdowns, one for 80 yards and one for 98 yards, and added 7 tackles.

Caleb Augustyn, Hersey: A standout from his safety spot all season, Augustyn had the biggest play as Hersey topped Niles West 43-3. With the Huskies leading 14-7 in the second quarter, Augustyn intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. The senior also finished with 6 tackles.

Tyler Holte, St. Edward: This 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior is a ball magnet on both sides of the line of scrimmage. In addition to catching touchdown passes of 60 and 48 yards, he made his presence felt on defense in a 56-0 win at Guerin. From his cornerback position, Holte was responsible for 2 of St. Edward's 5 interceptions in the game, highlighted by a second-quarter pick he returned 29 yards for a touchdown.

Anthony Mangano, Lake Zurich: In his first varsity season, the sophomore cornerback is showing not only a nose for the ball but also an ability to make plays for the Bears' defense. His 30-yard interception return for a touchdown against Zion-Benton was his second Pick Six in as many weeks and started the scoring, as the Bears won 36-6 to improve to 4-0 and 2-0 in the North Suburban Conference.
