Caruthersville Tigers running back Darrell Monroe is off to another monster season, and he is the Gatorade Hi-Five football player of the week for Week 5.
Monroe helped lead the Tigers to a 63-13 victory Friday over Dexter, improving their record to 3-1 on the season.
Monroe rushed for 270 yards and five touchdowns in the first half alone. He has 15 touchdowns in the first four games of the season, and the senior is being recruited by Mizzou, LSU and other big schools.
His head coach Nathan Morgan calls Monroe a great football player and a great person.
