We got ourselves our first defensive stud winning Athlete of the Week.
The Week 5 winner of the 4th Down honor goes to Newport’s Ethan Grove. The sophomore linebacker had an impressive 10 tackles on defense during a 41-20 loss to Upper Dauphin. Grove’s blocked punt return touchdown (from 10 yards out) briefly made it a 27-20 game in the third quarter.
Grove pulled in 337 votes this week, topping Mifflin County senior Isaac Wilson’s 228. Third was Upper Dauphin senior Branden Fetterholf.
