Juniata fans came out in force for two of their own this week, lifting Waylon Ehrenzeller to the 4th Down Magazine Player of the Week.
Ehrenzeller’s only competition after racking up 1,006 votes was his teammate and run-blocker, Jonathan Kauffman, who had 830 votes. A total of 1,918 fans voted.
Both were certainly deserving of the praise. Ehrenzeller earned a tough 135 yards and two second-half touchdowns on 21 carries to lead Juniata (8-3) to a 17-7 win over DuBois. That victory, in the District 6/9 Class 4A subregional, advanced the team to Saturday’s PIAA Class 4A first-round game against District 10 champion Meadville (11-1).
