Dante Carr, Minersville:, fr., QB: Dante Carr didn’t shy away from a shootout Friday night against Schuylkill Haven. The freshman turned in his best performance of his young varsity career when he slinged the rock for 325 yards on 13 completions and four touchdowns in a 47-39 victroy. He also rushed for another 49 stripes. Not bad, kid.
Jake Scheib, Tri-Valley, sr., RB/DT: Scheib upped Marian Catholic’s discomfort level on both sides of the football as the powerful senior cranked out a strong overall performance in the Dawgs’ 33-7 victory. Scheib rushed eight times for 99 yards and one touchdown, but also caught a pair of passes for 60 yards. In addition, he made six tackles for a Tri-Valley defense that limited run-happy Marian to 186 offensive yards.
Brock Polinsky, Minersville, sr., FS/WR: If you are watching any highlights of Minersville’s 47-39 shootout victory against Schuylkill Haven, you’ll be hard pressed to find many without free safety Brock Polinsky who seemed to be in on just about every tackle Minersville made Friday night. The senior chalked up a game-high 17 tackles to help his mates walk off the field with a ‘dub.
Payton Fasnacht, Blue Mountain, jr., RB/CB: When Blue Mountain needed production, they turned to their most trusted weapon, Payton Fasnacht. He didn’t disappoint. The junior ripped off 125 yards on 17 carries and hauled in four passes for another 83 yards. He took it to the house twice in a 14-6 victory against Bangor to propel his squad.
Brady Evans, Williams Valley, sr., WR/DB: Evans was his typically productive self last weekend, catching three passes for 101 yards and one touchdown in Williams Valley’s 42-22 triumph over Shenandoah Valley. Of course, Evans’ load score was a biggie covering 64 yards right before the halftime break.
Reece Huntzinger, Tri-Valley, sr., RB/LB: Huntzinger also wreaked all sorts of havoc throughout Tri-Valley’s 33-7 conquest of Marian Catholic, rushing 10 times for 34 yards and two scores before playing a significant role in limiting the Colts’ offensive attack. Huntzinger totaled nine tackles from his inside backer spot – including 1.5 quarterback sacks – but he also picked off a Marian throw.
