An out-of-nowhere performance launched Marian Catholic’s Rory Dixon to Week 7 4th Down Magazine Colonial-Schuylkill League Player of the Week honors.
The freshman running back, who came into Friday’s game against Shenandoah Valley with 261 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the season, turned in a career performance. In a 30-0 win for the 5-2 Colts, Dixon churned out 214 yards on 28 carries and two scores, all career highs. He also recorded a tackle as a defensive back, giving him 18 on the season.
Colts fans came out in droves to vote for the rookie over Williams Valley running back Alex Achenbach, with 4,391 to the latter’s 3,790. There were 9,390 votes cast.
Dixon and Marian Catholic host those same Vikings in Week 8 action Friday night at 7.
