He had two interceptions that directly led to two touchdowns, including one of his own scores.
It wasn’t enough to pull out a PIAA Class 4A playoff win. But Juniata freshman Jasper Shepps heads into the offseason with a career game and a 4th Down Magazine Athlete of the Week honor.
Shepps did more than pick off two passes in the 27-14 loss to Meadville. He also had six tackles on defense, and on offense he caught four balls for 106 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown.
Shepps picked up 246 votes this week, easily lapping the field. Mahkai Hopkins, the Harrisburg running back, finished second with 47 votes.
