(WDAY Sports) - After a one week absence due to high school football games last Wednesday, the WDAY Honor Roll returns. With playoffs having started, you know you better be ready to strap it up, and that includes your chin strap!

For the best runs of the past two weeks, we begin with Fosston's Zach O'Keefe, who gives a couple of stiff arms on this dandy debut.

How about this, Detroit Lakes' Josh Stalberger makes the catch, then keeps his balance using the back of his ball-carrying hand, and then takes it the distance.

Kelly Illies from Wyndmere-Lidgerwood shows some power and then some leaping ability, going over the top and into the end zone.

There have been some great catches recently, starting off with Grafton's Ryan Mohagen against Shanley, leaping in the back of the end zone and still getting one foot in for the score.

Moorhead's Erik Bye comes up with the stretching, one-hand grab. Now that's impressive.

We can't forget about a little defense. Kindred defensive back Dalton Nelson with great reaction, getting this juggling interception against Central Cass.

And Thief River Falls’ Jacob Madison, watch him come down with the juggling catch. He would also take it to the house.

Last but not least, the best hits. We start with NDSU freshman Colton Heagle, who punishes the Indiana State receiver along the sideline.

Augustana's Keith Newman puts a good lick on the MSU Moorhead returner on this punt return. And finally, Jeff Illies from Wyndmere-Lidgerwood with the big hit and sack against New Rockford Sheyenne.
