DISTRICT 11 NOTES (week 6):   


Ben Terry of Mahanoy Area led the District last week with his 248 yards rushing and 3 td’s scored in their win over Nativity.  Terry has rushed for 705 yards and scored 15 td’s this season and now has 25 career td’s.  Qb Justin Holmes of Northwestern rushed for 243 yards and a td in their win over Salisbury.  Nick Henry, also from Northwestern, scored 3 td’s in the game and is now a member of the “40 td” club.  Henry has 41 career td’s.  He joins former Tigers Harry Hall 59 (2012-15), Brett Snyder 51 (1992-95), Josh Snyder 49 (1994-97), and Cam Richardson 46 (2011-14).  Chase Herb of Tri-Valley rushed for 215 yards for the 2nd week in a row and has scored 3 td’s in each of the 3 games Tri-Valley has played this season.  Matt Frauen of Notre Dame leads the District with his 20 td’s and went over 2,000 yards rushing for his ND career.  Frauen’s career totals have him with 2,021 yards rushing, 394 yards receiving, and 34 td’s scored.  Isiah Rico of Parkland also went over 2,000 yards rushing for his career and now has 2,026 yards while scoring 26 td’s.  Jacob Hoffman reached 25 career td’s and Mike Repsher of Northern Lehigh reached 20 career td’s.  Also from Northern Lehigh, junior Matt Frame went over 1,000 yards rushing and is at 1,001 yards.   Nate Curvey of Tamaqua also went over 1,000 yards and the senior is currently at 1,008 yards.


Will Fish of East Stroudsburg South threw for 404 yards and 6 td’s in their win over Stroudsburg.   His 404 yards is 2nd best at ESS behind only Jake Cirillo’s 462 yards that he threw vs Allen in 2016.  Cirillo also threw 6 td’s in that game which Fish tied last week.  In the 2 games ESS has played, Fish has thrown for 718 yards while throwing for 11 td passes and 0 int’s.  It also pushed him over 2,000 yards and 30 td passes for his career and is currently at 2,307 yards and 31 td passes.   He’s the 3rd Cavalier to throw 30 or more td passes in a career.  Cirillo threw 69 from 2013-16 and Robbie Moyer threw 57 from 2007-09.  Bryce Herb of Williams Valley inches closer to his dad’s record for career passing yards.   Bryce is now within 44 yards of the school record.  Herb leads the District with 1,481 yards passing.  Nazareth’s Matt Bugbee backed up the 269 yards that he threw last week vs Northampton by throwing for 266 yards in their win over Freedom.  Bugbee has thrown for 840 yards and 6 td’s this season and is within 64 yards (936 career yards) of being on the chart.  Dante Mahaffey of Saucon Valley is now on the chart for both rushing and passing.  The junior has rushed for 1,132 yards and 24 td’s while throwing for 1,949 yards and 23 td passes so far in his career.  Quintin Stephens of Salisbury threw for 249 yards and 3 td’s in their loss to Northwestern.  He now has 30 career td passes.  Stephens is only the 3rd Falcon to throw for 30 or more td’s in their career.  Tevon Weber threw 53 td’s from (2013-15) and Kyle McFarland threw 44 td’s from 2004-06.  Collin Quintano of Notre Dame threw for 259 yards and a td in their win over Palisades.  The junior has thrown 20 td’s in his career.  Sophomore Mason Kroh of Pine Grove subbing for Josh Leidinger threw for 181 yards and 4 td’s in their win over Panther Valley.


Chad Parton of Salisbury caught 11 passes for 174 yards and 2 td’s vs Northwestern last week.  His 11 catches are 2 short of the school record of 13 that Jake Remmel had vs Northern Lehigh in 2006.  At the time, Remmel broke my 25-year-old league record of 12 catches that I had vs Bangor in 1981.  Remmel actually had 2 other catches called back in that game because of penalties.  Saucon Valley’s Taylor Kreitz would tie Remmel’s record when he caught 13 passes vs Pen Argyl in 2008.  And Wilson’s Zach Bogoly also tied the record when he caught 13 passes vs Saucon Valley in 2012.  Christian Sapp of ES South caught 8 passes for 174 yards and 2 td’s vs Stroudsburg to break both the career reception and reception yardage record at ESS.  Sapp joined the “100 catch” club in the process with his 103 career catches.  He is closing in on 2,000 yards for his career and currently has 1,879 yards to go along with his 25 career td catches.  Dan Cason held the old records when he caught 97 passes for 1,784 yards from 2008-09.  Cason still holds the career td catch record with 30.   Zack Hunsicker of Lehighton needs 1 more catch to join the “100 catch” club and Parton needs 4 more catches to join.  Jaiden Cabrera of Nazareth went over 1,000 yards receiving for his career and now has 1,061 yards.  Gabe Davis of Minersville currently has 1,358 yards receiving for his career.  He’s 1 yard behind school record holder Bryce Ellinger who had 1,359 yards receiving from 2016-18.  Shea Morgan of Pine Grove caught 4 passes for 114 yards and 3 td’s vs Panther Valley.  Morgan leads the District with 37 catches for 652 yards and is 2nd with his 9 td grabs.


In the same game last week, Sander Sahaydak of Liberty kicked a 46-yard field goal and Aidan Reinhard of Northampton kicked a 43-yard field goal.  Sahaydak holds the Liberty school record with his 53 yarder last year and Mark Lilly holds the Northampton record with a 47 yarder vs Dieruff in 1993.


In 1973, Central Catholic, down 18 points entering the 4th quarter vs Bethlehem Catholic, scored 19 points in the 4th to pull out a 33-32 win.  Dan Kendra Jr completed 16 of 26 passes for 205 yards and a td.  Kendra would also rush for 63 yards and 3 td’s.  Jeff McGeehin would haul in 7 of those passes for 96 yards and a td.  This was their last game played in a Viking uniform.  Kendra would throw for 5,003 yards and 40 td’s in his career.  McGeehin would catch 144 passes for 2,377 yards and 29 td’s in his career.  All of McGeehen’s totals were District 11 records at the time.  Kendra was the first qb to throw for 5,000 yards in District 11.  He would be the 2nd qb in the District to throw for 40 career td’s.  The first to throw 40 td’s was another Allentown School District player that played at the same time (1971-73) as Kendra.  Mark Smith of Allen would throw for his 40th and 41st career td passes a week earlier.  Smith would then throw 2 more vs Dieruff to end with 43 career td passes.  Smith threw for 3,682 yards in his career.  Kendra went on to be a 4-year starter for Bobby Bowden at West Virginia and then sign as a free agent with the Los Angeles Rams.  He would end up playing in the Canadian Football League.  Smith went to Brown University.  McGeehin went to Villanova and played both football and basketball for the Wildcats.  He scored 1,338 points for the Central basketball team.  McGeehin’s competition for the District records also came from an Allen player.  Bob Frederick caught 138 passes for 1,871 yards and 22 td’s from 1971-73.  Frederick would also join McGeehin and play for Villanova.  Back to CC/BECA game a little known sophomore for BECA named Mike Guman would rush for 43 yards, catch an 84-yard td pass, and catch two 2-point conversions.  Guman would go on to play for Penn State and then play 8 plus years for the Los Angeles Rams.
Follow up:  Sophomore Cade Christopher of Northwestern caught 2 passes vs Salisbury but neither went for a touchdown.  So Christopher and Art Ruth of Jim Thorpe remain tied with 6 consecutive catches going for td’s.
