Well, how do we write about an entire defense winning a Player of the Week award?
Oh, yeah, Juniata’s defense is this week’s 4th Down Big School Players of the Week.
It’s OK to break the mold after the kind of performance this group put together, pitching its fifth shutout this season by blanking USO 8-0 in the District 6/8 Class 4A regional title game. Juniata recorded seven sacks by seven different players. The Wildcats could get nothing going all night, and Juniata is now heading to a date with District 10 champ Meadville.
The defense picked up 409 votes this week, 58% of the 701 votes this week. In second was Big Spring tight end/linebacker Connor Black with 104.
