Tray Mitchell has been taken down.
The three-time champion of the Patch Athlete of the Week vote was finally beaten. All it took was some overtime heroics from Zumwalt South's Dillon Bowman.
Let's see how the voting went down.
Which St. Charles County football player was the best in the first round of the 2012 playoffs?
- Dillon Bowman—Fort Zumwalt South 25 votes (73 percent)

- Armand Keely—Orchard Farm 0 votes (0 percent)
- Jake Wilmes—St. Dominic: 1 vote (2 percent)

Bowman may not have had the big numbers Thursday night against Zumwalt North, but he came through when it mattered. Bowman picked a 25-yard touchdown run in overtime and then successfully made the two-point conversion to give the Bulldogs a big Week 10 playoff win over the rival Panthers. The touchdown was Bowman's second big play of the game. Earlier in the contest, he completed his only pass of the day to Casey Owens for a 65-yard score. He made the two-point conversion on that score as well. For the game, Bowman had six carries for 38 yards and score and was 1-for-1 passing for 65 yards and a TD.
Patch wants to thank everyone who voted. Remember, this whole contest is just for fun and bragging rights.
