4th Down Magazine Mid-Penn Conference Player of the Week: Ben Fickel

Fans tend to reward athletes who can produce on multiple sides of the football.

Week 2’s 4th Down Magazine Player Mid-Penn Conference Player of the Week vote reflected that philosophy once again — and rewarded arguably the best story of the weekend — by handing Big Spring’s Ben Fickel the honors this week.

The defensive back and kick returner was the hero in the Bulldogs’ first Little Brown Jug victory over Shippensburg in 13 years. The senior returned a kickoff 88 yards to pay dirt and just two plays later picked off a Ship pass and returned it 30 yards to the house to secure a 21-7 victory, one of the biggest in recent Big Spring memory.

Bulldog Nation came out in droves to vote for Fickel, with 6,434 tallies. That bit out a game push from Steel-High for senior receiver/defensive end Kam Chisholm (5,275). A total of 13,358 votes were cast.

Fickel and Big Spring host Newport on Friday at 7 p.m.
