Four touchdowns was more than enough for Mahanoy Area’s Colm McGroarty to earn the Week 3 4th Down Magazine Player Colonial-Schuylkill League Player of the Week.
Fans voted for the senior running back 1,043 times after he ran for 85 yards and earned 100 receiving yards on 17 total touches, leading the Golden Bears to a 40-0 shutout of Panther Valley, their first win of the season.
McGroarty is second on the team in receiving yards (118) and rushing yards (174) and is tops with six TDs.
There were 1,762 votes cast this week, and McGroarty beat Pen Argyl receiver Damian Tyminski (664) for the nod. He and Mahanoy face Catasauqua on Friday.
