Chase Abbington's big Week 2 didn't go unnoticed.

After leading the Fort Zumwalt South Bulldogs to a win, Abbington came up big again. With 83 percent of the vote, Abbington won the Patch St. Charles County Athlete of the Week award.

Abbington had a good day on the ground against Francis Howell Central would be a bit of an understatement. The Bulldogs' senior running back dominated the Spartans in the rain. Abbington carried the ball an incredible 44 times for a staggering 324 yards—for the less math inclined that a 7.4 yards per carry average. Two of his carries resulted in touchdowns—two of the three the Bulldogs scored all game. His final score, a 49-run in the fourth quarter, broke a 14-all tie and helped Zumwalt South improve to 2-0 on the season.
