Welcome to 4th Down Magazine's vote for the Week 11 Player of the Week presented by Crown Trophy in Lemoyne.
The nominees for the week are listed below in alphabetical order. Vote for the player with the most impressive performance.
The poll will remain open until Thursday at noon as a result of the server issues we had this week. The winner will be announced on Thursday evening and presented with a plaque created by Crown Trophy.
Macklin Ayers, QB-LB, Upper Dauphin: Despite a 48-23 loss at Delone Catholic in the D3 Class 2A semifinals, Ayers ran 16 times for 97 yards and threw for 152 more stripes. Defensively, he had 10 tackles (1 TFL).
Adam Burkhart, RB-LB, Central Dauphin: The senior posted his fourth 125-plus yard game in a row with 23 carries for 162 yards. Opening drive he carried nine times for 65 yards including a 2-yard TD run, then added 2-point conversion in a game that would end in a 49-21 win over Central York in the District 3 Class 6A opener. Also added TD runs of 19 and 5 yards.
Spencer Dimon, DL-OL, Williams Valley: Dimon was an absolutely menace, recording 15 tackles (11 solo, 2 TFLs) to beat Marion Catholic 17-0 in the D11 Class 1A, while adding a sack, interception (returned 19 yards) and a forced fumble. WV allowed just 226 yards (60 rushing) in the win.
Kane Everson, QB, Harrisburg: A pair of touchdowns for the talented QB helped the Cougars smack Hempfield in the D3 Class 6A opener 42-0. Everson took advantage of a dry day to complete 19 of 21 passes for 235 yards, hitting Rynell Gantt and Donte Kent for scores.
Dresyn Green, RB, State College: The sophomore is part of a loaded backfield with options and rushed for 196 yards and a touchdown in a District 6 Class 6A over Mifflin County 42-7. He needed only 14 totes, averaged a staggering 14 yards per carry.
Adam Houser, RB-DB, Shippensburg: Houser scored on a 3-yard run on the Greyhounds’ first drive, a 65-yarder, and that TD proved the only points in a muddy 6-0 win over Northeastern in the D3 Class 5A first round. Houser finished with 90 yards on 28 carries, leading both sides.
London Johnson, QB, Halifax: Accounted for three TDs, including two through the air, to hand the Wildcats their first District 3 championship ever, 37-6 over Fairfield in the Class 1A title game. Johnson’s TDs came on a 2-yard run, 38-yard pass and 15-yard pass. He was 7-of-11 for 86 yards passing.
Keyshawn Jones, RB, Chambersburg: Rushed for 155 yards on 17 carries against defending District 3 Class 6A champion Manheim Township, including a 91-yard touchdown run in a 20-17 loss.
Jaheim Morris, RB, Cedar Cliff: Saw his streak of 200-plus yard games come to an end at three, but in his first playoff victory of his career the junior carried the ball a career-high 35 times for 141 yards and three touchdowns. TD runs were 4, 4 and 1 yards in a 50-6 rout of Exeter Township in the D3 Class 5A opener.
Terrance Quaker, RB-DB, West Perry: Rushed 28 times for a career-high 293 yards including a 56-yard touchdown run, averaged 10.5 yards per carry. Mustangs went for more than 400 on the ground to post only second postseason win for Mustangs in school history, 33-22 over West York in D3 Class 4A. Also had an interception and a forced fumble on defense.
