4th Down Magazine’s Player of the Week: Palmyra’s Nick Wallaesa

By 4th Down Staff: 

Winners of three of the last four, Palmyra has been on a roll lately. 

Perhaps it should be four of the last five after Nick Wallaesa was named the 4th Down Player of the Week. 

Wallaesa rumbled for 66 rushing yards, including a 20-yard TD. But he also connected on a gadget play, hooking up with Gage Miller for an 87-yard TD right after his scoring run. 

The senior has rushed for 458 yards on 82 carries and has totaled four rushing touchdowns this season for the 3-5 Cougars. 

His performance attracted plenty of fan support as he beat out State College RB Nehemiah Howell in a high-vote shootout, 1,492 to 1,215. Wallaesa picked up 37.8% of the 3,947 votes cast compared to Howell’s 30.8%. In third was Newport RB-LB Thomas Pyle with 346 votes (8.8%).
