The first 4th Down Magazine Player Colonial-Schuylkill League Player of the Week has been picked.
Tri-Valley running back Noah Porter won a tight one with an incredible 4,873 votes, with five midstate players in the 4th Down coverage area picking up 11,746 total votes. Porter certainly earned the fans’ respect after he ran for 154 yards on 28 carries and caught four balls for 79 yards, scoring a pair of touchdowns in a 38-34 loss to Minersville.
The junior edged out another running back from Williams Valley, Alex Achenbach, who had 4,649 votes, for the season-opening POTW victory. We’ll get a chance to see both backs square off head-to-head in Week 10 for the annual rivalry game between the two teams.
