Prep Props is our weekly look at the best individual statistical performances in the state, with the leaders in rushing yards, passing yards, and receiving yards. Prep Props is published every Monday morning.
Ozaukee trailed Oostburg 14-0 after the first quarter, but the Warriors stayed the course and didn't panic. In fact, they continued to run the ball, run it again, and run it some more. Junior running back Jack Genzmer did most of that, carrying the ball 34 times for a state-high 276 yards and three touchdowns as Ozaukee rallied for a 20-14 victory. He also added three sacks on defense in the victory.

What a crazy game it was between New Holstein and Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Christian on Friday. Once again, KLC found itself trailing late in the game after New Holstein took a 50-36 lead with 5:41 left. Quarterback Robby Michael orchestrated a comeback that was capped off when he hit Colin Girdaukas down the right sideline for a 74-yard touchdown as time expired to tie the game, with the ensuing extra point giving Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Christian an improbable 51-50 win. Michael finished the game with 579 yards, which is third all-time. He completed 24-of-36 passes with four touchdowns in the game.

That final reception allowed Girdaukas to break the state's single-game receiving record, as he finished the night with 339 yards on seven receptions, three of them touchdowns. The previous record was set by Spooner's Tanner Vik in 2013 when he caught eight passes for 331 yards and five scores. Girdaukas now has 24 receptions for 767 yards and nine touchdowns in three games this season.
