One of the best quarterbacks in Pennsylvania high school history is again the 4th Down Magazine Mid-Penn Conference Player of the Week.
Steel-High’s Alex Erby was voted by fans as the POTW this week after yet another dominant performance in the PIAA Class 1A semifinals, throwing for 229 yards and three touchdowns on 13-of-18 passing against South Williamsport.
The senior is now two touchdowns away from breaking the state’s single-season record of 57 set in 2021 by Central Martinsburg’s Jeff Hoenstine; Erby already has the career TD and passing yards mark.
One of the best to ever sling the rock, Erby won 175 of the 359 votes cast this week, with only Harrisburg junior QB Shawn Lee Jr. coming close with 129 votes for second.
Erby and the undefeated Rollers have a chance Thursday afternoon to win their third state championship in four years and repeat as champions when they face District 7 champion Fort Cherry at 1 p.m. at Cumberland Valley High School.
