Dakota Sary nearly had his first 200-yard game in Week 3, and that was cause enough for Lower Dauphin fans to reward him by voting the senior the Week 3 4th Down Magazine Mid-Penn Conference Player of the Week Sponsored by Vertical Raise PA.
Sary rushed for 195 yards, scoring on a 72-yard sprint, on just eight carries in the Falcons’ 30-0 whitewash of Elizabethtown, their second shutout of the season. The senior has put up some of the best rushing numbers of the young season in the Mid-Penn, with 335 yards and four touchdowns on 35 touches (9.6 yards per carry) as the Falcons are seeking to finish with a winning record for the second time in the last three seasons.
He picked up 1,842 votes out of 4,333 total cast, enough to beat Big Spring back Grant Hall, who finished with 1,101 votes.
Sary and the Falcons visit Mifflin County on Friday to open Mid-Penn Keystone action.
