One of the season’s newest members to a starting lineup is now one of 4th Down Magazine’s newest Player of the Week nominees. And suddenly a winner.
Line Mountain freshman quarterback Kaiden Maurer is this week’s Player of the Week after making just his second varsity start. He led the Eagles to a 43-13 win over Halifax going 12-for-16 passing with 155 yards and a touchdown.
Maurer has made appearances in six games and holds a tidy 65% completion percentage, and he’s 16 for 26 for 204 yards and a TD in his two starts.
On a week in which 1,281 votes were cast, Maurer picked up 354, easily topping Juniata freshman Jasper Shepps’s 293.
