SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. (WRCB) -- Three games into the 2010 season, it's obvious Soddy-Daisy's offensive gameplan has changed a bit since last year.

The formerly pass-happy Trojans (2-1) have turned to the run, mainly because they can give the ball to Cedric Edwards.

The talented tailback rushed for 232 yards and three touchdowns to lead Soddy-Daisy to a 19-0 rivalry upset of previously unbeaten Ooltewah. The performance has garnered Edwards our Friday Night Football Player of the Week honors for Week 2.

Edwards scored all three touchdowns in the first half on runs of 21, 5, and 7. He churned out 108 yards on the ground in the first quarter alone, and was up to 167 at the break.

Other standout performances from Week 2 were:

-- Bledsoe County's Cody Holloway 17-of-27 passes for 212 yards and six touchdowns in the Warriors' 41-0 rout of Grace Academy.

-- Boyd-Buchanan's Chase Reed rushed for a touchdown, caught a touchdown pass, and returned the opening kickoff 72 yards for a score in the Bucs' 40-0 win over Silverdale.

-- Cleveland's Jamarcus Mobley rushed for 138 yards and three touchdowns in the Blue Raiders' 33-15 win over rival Bradley Central in the Friday Night Football Game of the Week.

-- McCallie's Daniel McClure rushed for 221 yards and four touchdowns on 22 carries in the Blue Tornado's 42-28 win over Pope John Paul II.

-- Walker Valley's Kelvin Wells rushed 30 times for 289 yards and three scores in the Mustangs' 42-20 loss at Rhea County.

-- Trion's Tanner Hayes caught a pair of touchdown passes in the Bulldogs' physcial 21-0 rivalry win at LaFayette.

-- Heritage's Jake Sampson scored twice, once on the ground and once in the air, to lead the Generals to their first-ever win over rival LFO 28-0.
