Tri-Valley’s football season ended last weekend, but Kash Tobin had a heckuva performance to earn the 4th Down Magazine Colonial-Schuylkill League Player of the Week for the first week of the playoffs
The senior linebacker was flying around the ball in a defensive slugfest that Marian Catholic eked out 14-6 in the District 11 Class 1A semifinals, recording a game-high 16 tackles (nine solo) and a sack of quarterback Bruce Hopeck. It wrapped up a menacing season for Tobin, who finished with 103 tackles, including 71 in the final five games, four sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery. He was also the Bulldogs’ second-leading rusher with 97 carries, 506 yards and six touchdowns.
Tobin was rewarded by Tri-Valley fans with 1,730 votes this week, easily besting POTW regular Alex Achenbach (William Valley), who had 659. There were 2,248 total votes cast this week.
The Bulldogs’ season came to an end with a 5-6 record.
