Quincy Brannon, jr., WR, Harrisburg: Brannon had a career day, even though the Cougars lost 24-12 to North Allegheny in the PIAA Class 6A semifinals. The junior had a career-high 115 yards and two touchdowns of 82 and 15 yards on four catches.
Ronald Burnette Jr., sr., RB/LB, Steel-High: Burnette was brutally efficient, averaging nearly 10 yards a carry as the Rollers dominated South Williamsport 48-21 in the PIAA Class 1A semifinals Friday night. He finished with 116 yards and touchdowns of 8 and 23 stripes on just 12 carries.
Alex Erby, sr., QB, Steel-High: It was easier sledding this week for Erby, who carved up South Williamsport for 229 yards and three touchdowns on 13-of-18 passing Friday night. He’s now two TDs away from breaking the state single-season record of 57 set in 2021 by Central Martinsburg’s Jeff Hoenstine. Erby also ran for a 35-yard TD.
Nazir Jones-Davis, so., RB, Bishop McDevitt: Jones-Davis did his part to try to prevent the Crusaders’ shocking end Friday in the state 1A semifinals. He ran for 97 yards on 18 carries, scoring the opening TD from a yard out. He also caught the tying TD pass from 13 yards out in OT, but McD lost to Dallas 26-23.
Shawn Lee Jr., jr., QB, Harrisburg: Lee recorded his ninth straight 100-yard rushing game in Saturday’s state semifinal loss, churning out 104 stripes in 20 attempts. He also completed 13 of 22 passes for 210 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Brannon. Lee finished the season with 1,509 rushing and 2,256 passing yards, both career highs.
Jaeion Perry, sr., WR/DB, Steel-High: Everything Perry touched nearly turned to gold in Friday’s win to clinch a return trip to the state championship. In six total touches, Perry scored twice — on a 39-yard reception 25 seconds into the game and a 70-yard carry in the third quarter — and finished with 70 rushing yards and 121 receiving (on five grabs).
