Here are some of the top performers from Week 3 of high school football

The Examiner
Blue Springs running back Kyle Bruce scampers down the field on a 62-yard touchdown run in Friday's season opener against Liberty. Bruce's score helped the Wildcats rally to tie it and send the game to overtime, but the Wildcats fell 43-42.

Kyle Bruce has been a pleasant surprise for the Blue Springs High School football team.

The Wildcats basketball team's point guard has turned into a pretty good running back on the gridiron.

After 106 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 10 carries in Friday's 37-9 victory over Staley, Bruce is averaging 104.7 yards per game and has four touchdowns through three games.

Bruce is averaging 7.9 yards per carry, has no fumbles and has amassed 314 yards for the season.

He is one of several top performers in Eastern Jackson County high school football's Week 3:
