Mid-Penn Week 8 Player of the Week Sponsored by Crown Trophy of Harrisburg

Aiden Ritter’s only interception of the season was a big one.

And it was enough for the Upper Dauphin senior to earn this week’s 4th Down Magazine Player of the Week. 

Ritter, a linebacker, snagged a tipped pass off the hands of teammate Twgan Engle and returned it 5 yards for a decisive score in a 20-13 win over Juniata last week. He also added 11 tackles as UD held Juniata to 258 total yards.

It’s been a solid season for the senior, who has 52 tackles, eight tackles for loss, two sacks, two forced fumbles and the aforementioned pick-6.

Ritter picked up a tidy 546 out of a total 1,509 total votes cast. He easily beat Line Mountain sophomore Ian Bates, who had 381 votes. 

Ritter and his Trojans (6-2) teammates have a non-division game against Big Spring next.
