Tymir Jackson, RB-DL, Middletown: The senior two-way stud for the Blue Raiders scored five touchdowns and totaled 197 rushing yards on 23 carries in a 46-7 District 3 Class 3A semifinal victory over Bermudian Springs.

Micah Brubaker, QB, Mechanicsburg: The senior accounted for 315 total yards and five touchdowns in a win over East Pennsboro. Brubaker totaled 224 passing yards and four touchdowns, making every throw in the book, and added 91 yards on the ground with a touchdown.

Donald Leach, QB, Susquehanna Township: Leach showed off his arm and legs in a 33-22 comeback win over West Perry. He threw for 254 yards on 14-of-17 passing and ran for 135 more stripes on 20 carries. And his third TD, a 15-yard run, with 1:23 left iced the game. Leach also threw TDs of 37 and 25 yards.

Sean Smith, RB-LB, Carlisle: A week after his record-setting 333-yard night, Smith provided a more-than-adequate encore. The senior two-way stud racked up 158 yards and two TDs of 17 and 29 yards on 26 carries. And he pitched in on defense as the Herd silenced visiting CD East in a 21-0 shutout.

Dillon Wakefield, RB-LB, Big Spring: The Bulldogs had no problem dispatching Halifax 35-7, with Wakefield shining in the victory. On a modest eight carries, Wakefield averaged a mesmerizing 19.4 yards, finishing with 155 stripes and a score that went for 21 yards.

Dylan Rodenhaber, RB-LB, Red Land: The Patriots are making strides during this rebuild, now at 3-3 after Friday’s 35-17 win over Twin Valley. They were aided by workhorse back Rodenhaber, who scored twice on runs of 4 and 34 yards while finishing with 141 stripes on just 18 totes. He also had a handful of tackles and forced a fumble.

Ethan Stroup, RB, Altoona: The Mountain Lions’ surprising run continues. Stroup was center stage in Friday’s 29-14 win over Williamsport in the District 4/6 Class 6A subregional, rushing for 149 yards on 33 carries, scoring on a 9-yard rush to stake Altoona to an early lead, then added a sack and fumble recovery later in the game.

Odell Greene, RB, Steel-High: Sloppy conditions forced the Rollers’ aerial game to the ground, and Greene was more than ready for it. The senior toted the rock an impressive 42 times, chugging along for 158 yards and two scores in the 21-13 District 3 Class 1A championship victory over Delone Catholic. His 17-yard score in the fourth was the insurance TD.

Gannon McMeans, QB, Cedar Cliff: McMeans overcame two INTs and 23 straight points from Mifflin County to toss a game-winning TD to Adam Enrico in overtime for a 32-29 victory. It was the third TD McMeans was responsible for, adding to his scoring runs of 16 and 1 yard earlier. He finished 10-of-15 for 86 yards passing and ran four times for 22 stripes.

Jacob Condo, QB, Juniata: Back behind center after missing Juniata’s regular-season finale, Condo mixed the run and pass masterfully as the Indians captured the District 6/9 Class 4A championship with a 24-21 conquest of Bellefonte. Condo tossed two touchdown passes, but he also rushed 21 times for 103 yards as Juniata stretched its winning streak to five games and claimed its first-ever PIAA tournament berth. 

Zach Harr, LB, Juniata: Harr certainly picked the right times to record his first two career interceptions in Juniata’s 24-21 win over Bellefonte in the District 6/9 Class 4A championship game. Harr’s second pick was the biggie, however, as it arrived in the fourth quarter and set up Ben Wagner’s game-winning 23-yard field goal.

Bryce Herb, QB-DB, Williams Valley: Adding to his career touchdown pass and yardage records, Herb passed for 179 yards (7-for-14) as the Vikings wheeled past Marian Catholic 41-10 and claimed the top seed in the District 11 Class 1A playoffs. Herb spread his touchdown throws to three receivers. Herb also rushed for 26 yards and one score on just two attempts.

Chase Herb, RB-DE, Tri-Valley: Herb cracked triple digits yet again, rushing 17 times for 177 yards as the Bulldogs wrapped up regular-season play by popping Panther Valley 41-6. Herb’s touchdown runs covered 7, 32, 17 and 52 yards, fueling a rushing attack that churned out nearly 400 yards against the Colts. 

Shea Morgan, WR-DB, Pine Grove: Morgan was his typically dynamic self in the Cardinals’ 38-26 loss to Tamaqua, catching five passes for 110 yards and two scores while also wheeling 50 yards with a fake punt for a third TD. Morgan’s five receptions moved him to 47 on the season, breaking the single-season mark (43) set by the great Larry Zimmerman. He also had a productive night defensively, making 19 tackles against the run-happy Blue Devils.

Brody Robinson, RB-LB, Pine Grove: Erasing the single-game standard (21) he established several weeks back, Robinson amassed 24 tackles Friday night in Pine Grove’s 38-26 loss to Tamaqua. Robinson also owns the Cardinals’ single-season record (129) with at least one game to play, besting the 2004 mark set by ball-hawking ‘backer Chuck Brightbill.
