Ronald Burnette, sr., RB, Steel-High: The Rollers’ offense will be featured heavily here this week after a clinical 43-25 PIAA Class 1A quarterfinal victory over Lackawanna Trail on Friday night. Burnette was electric, covering 101 yards on 17 carries that included a 57-yard TD run, plus 93 yards on four receptions.
Durrell Ceasar Jr., sr., WR/S, Steel-High: Ceasar was his typical playmaking self in the Rollers’ state quarterfinal victory. The senior caught eight passes for 154 yards and touchdowns of 22 and 37 yards, giving him 1,694 yards and 12 TDs so far this season.
Noah Doi, jr., RB/DB, Camp Hill: Dunmore walked away from the PIAA Class 2A quarterfinals with a 41-25 win over Camp Hill, but Doi did his part to try to spring an upset. The junior scored first-half touchdowns on 38- and 23-yard catches, finishing with six grabs for 91 yards and four runs for 26.
Alex Erby, sr., QB, Steel-High: The state’s all-time passing leader carved up one of the best small-school defenses in the state, going 21 of 26 for 398 yards and four touchdowns (22, 11, 42 and 37 yards) against Lackawanna Trail. He also ran in a 3-yard touchdown, finishing with six carries for 10 stripes.
Nehemiah Ewell, jr., RB, Harrisburg: It was another hard day at the office for the Cougars against Manheim Township. But Ewell earned his proverbial paycheck with 24 carries for 88 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning 2-yarder in overtime to claim the District 3 Class 6A championship 34-28.
Shawn Lee Jr., jr., QB, Harrisburg: Lee also had to work harder than normal but again did enough to lead the Cougars to their third straight district gold. Lee ran in a 1-yard TD and threw a 4-yarder in the second half, finishing with 120 yards on 21 carries and another 42 yards on 6-of-12 passing.
Kobe Moore, sr., WR/LB, Camp Hill: Moore’s 55-yard pick-6 with seconds to spare in the first half got the Lions back into the game, down 21-19 at half. But that was as close as they got, although Moore finished on offense with five catches for 33 yards and three carries for 14.
Jaeion Perry, sr., WR, Steel-High: Perry was the third head of the Rollers’ three-headed passing monster Friday night, catching six passes for two touchdowns (11 and 42 yards) and 154 stripes, just like a previously mentioned teammate.
Chase Regan, sr., WR/S, Bishop McDevitt: More to come from this game. The Crusaders may not have been able to successfully mount a late comeback 23-17 win over Manheim Central for the District 3 Class 4A title if not for Regan’s clutch 66-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter that briefly made it 8-7 McD.
Stone Saunders, jr., QB, Bishop McDevitt: Normally we wouldn’t nominate a quarterback with two interceptions, but Saunders showed resolve in throwing two fourth-quarter touchdowns within 15 seconds of each other to stun Manheim Central. He finished with 121 yards on 14 of 36 passing and ran four times for 16 yards.
Rico Scott, sr., WR, Bishop McDevitt: The Alabama pledge caught the game-winning TD, a 25-yarder with 8:29 left to play in a nail-biting win, giving the Crusaders their 17th district title and 26th straight win. Scott finished with 10 catches for 63 yards.
Jasper Shepps, so., WR/DB, Juniata: Shepps left his mark early on with a 51-yard touchdown run, but Selinsgrove overpowered Juniata 44-14 in the PIAA Class 4A quarterfinals. Shepps added a team-high four catches for 34 yards. He also had an interception on defense.
