Angel Cabrera has a knack for the big game, and that earned him 4th Down Magazine Mid-Penn Conference Player of the Week honors after the first round of the District 3 playoffs.
Cabrera had what we’ll gladly call his best game as a running back, carrying the rock a carry high 37 times and scoring a personal best four touchdowns in an epic 28-27 comeback victory over Exeter Township in the District 3 Class 5A first round Friday night. His 183 yards are third most in his career behind his two 200-yard performances, but Friday’s showing helped the Trojans erase a 27-0 halftime deficit. Big-time stuff.
Cabrera now has 1,591 yards and 24 TDs on 270 carries, among the best in the Mid-Penn Conference.
He won a tight poll this week with 542 votes cast, edging out Juniata sophomore receiver Jasper Shepps for his second POTW nod this season. There were 1,049 total votes cast this week.
Cabrera and Hershey now visit 5A top-seed New Oxford on Friday in the quarterfinals at 7 p.m.
