INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – We beat the thunderstorms to get in some great action in week four of the prep football season across Central Indiana. Out of all the fantastic prep football our cameras caught, two plays stood out above the rest. Now your vote will decide which play will be the FasTrack Mechanical Play of the Week.


With Lawrence Central's offense struggling to get going, the defense provided a spark. The Bears opponent, Warren Central, had the ball, as the Warriors' quarterback rolled out to pass. Throwing back across his body, the QB didn't think Manny Bellamy would be able to make a twisting, diving interception, but the LC defender did so, giving the ball back to the Bears.


Cathedral and Chatard share 25 state titles between them, so the action on the field is always intense when these rivals face off on the gridiron. This Friday, it was electric from the opening kick, which came down into the hands of Zavier Brown. Brown took off across the field instead of up the field, usually taboo when returning kicks, but what came next fooled the Chatard kick team. Brown faked a reverse, then took off down the sideline with a wall of Irish blockers in front of him. It was close to as easy a kick return touchdown as you'll see, as Brown finished in the end zone, the first score in a big win for Cathedral.
