Colonial-Schuylkill League Player of the Week: Alex Achenbach

A week after he finished second in the polls, Williams Valley stud Alex Achenbach is the Week 2 4th Down Magazine Player Colonial-Schuylkill League Player of the Week.

The dynamic running back and safety put on one of the best shows of the young season in all of Pennsylvania last week, slicing up rival Pine Grove for 343 yards and five touchdowns on just 14 carries in a 48-6 thumping. That’s an average of one TD in less than three carries. And the senior caught a 33-yard pass. Oh, and we almost forgot what Achenbach did on defense — two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

There are some big-time Achenbach fans out there, too. A week after he earned more than 4,000 votes, he picked up 5,715 this week to be Minersville senior back/linebacker Luke Stevenosky (3,827 votes). There were a total of 10,696 votes cast this week.

Achenbach and the Vikings return to action Friday against Schuylkill Haven at 7 p.m.
