Hilton Head Island High School running back and defensive lineman Poona Ford is the Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette's High School Football Player of the Week for Week 5.

Putting together perhaps his finest game as a Seahawk, Ford ran for three touchdowns, made four tackles for loss and recorded two sacks in Hilton Head Island's 33-32 win over Bluffton in the Bridge Bowl, ending a five-game losing streak in the series.

The Louisville commitment rushed for 51 yards on 12 carries and caught a pass for 6 yards.
