4th Down Staff:
Chance Eyler had a breakout game, tossing a career-high 229 yards in Friday’s 24-18 loss to West Perry.
The effort was enough to claim one of our last Player of the Week honors of this strange, truncated 2020 season.
Eyler’s stat line — 17-of-22, 229 yards, TD passes of 9 and 12 yards, an interception and seven carries for 13 yards — is the best of his career as well. The senior’s previous career high was 106 yards earlier this season.
Eyler now has 532 yards through the air in his final campaign, including six touchdowns, on. 48-of-87 passing. He also has 173 yards and two TDs on the ground.
Eyler has led the Indians to a 4-3 record.
He picked up 678 votes this week, 35.4% of the 1,915 votes cast. His only close competition was Shippensburg QR/DB Devin Wilson, who garnered 560 votes (29.2%). Halifax RB/LB Bryce Enders finished third with 281 votes (14.7%).
