RUNNING BACKS:  Harry Hall of Northwestern broke Brett Snyder’s career rushing record last week.  Hall now has 4,332 yards and 49 career td’s.  Snyder racked up 4,281 yards and a school record 51 td’s from 1992-95.  Hall’s 49 td’s places him in a tie for second place all time at Northwestern.  Head coach Josh Snyder scored 49 td’s from 1994-97. Hall’s career yardage moves him into 19th place all-time in the District just ahead of Niko Petrone of ES South and just behind Chuck Dibilio of Nazareth.  Austyn Borre has 58 career td’s and is now in 30th place all-time in District 11. Borre is tied with Darren Mason of Liberty and Robbie Frey of Lehighton.  Borre’s 3,795 yards also puts him in 30th place just ahead of Ra’Von Burton of Catasauqua and Dan Lipsett of Minersville.  Wyatt Clements of Lehighton has 53 career td’s and needs 6 more to break Robbie Frey’s school record.  Last week, Jamaal Brome of Stroudsburg (1,145) and Kyle Boney of Emmaus (1,147) went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season.  They join Evan Culver of Saucon Valley who leads the District with 1,192 yards.  Culver needs 2 more td’s to reach 50 for his career.  Culver and Clements are just outside the top 50 in career yardage.  On the bubble in 50th place is Rich Guman of Bethlehem Catholic.  There’s a four way tie in the District for total touchdowns scored.  Culver, Brome, Boney and Antwon Keenan of Bethlehem Catholic all have 19 td’s this season.  Major Jordan of North Schuylkill rushed for a career high 236 yards in their win over Mahanoy Area.  Bud Moyer of Tamaqua went over 2,000 yards (2.048) and 30 td’s (32) for his career.  The 32 td’s ties him with Tyler Hope for 5th place all-time at the school.  Boney is averaging 191 yards rushing a game and is looking to move to the first page of chart.  Last year Boney’s former teammate Andrew Davidson did the same thing.  Davidson also wasn’t on the chart to start the year but managed to break onto the first page in his last game of the year (week 12).  Alvin Pacheco of Central Catholic rushed for 249 yards and 4 td’s in their win over Nazareth.  Quarterback Tyler Cann of Lehighton has now rushed for 21 td’s and thrown for 25.


QUARTERBACKS:  Doug Erney of Liberty threw for 204 yards and 4 td’s in their win over Parkland.  Erney takes over the District lead with his 17 td passes.  Erney now has 61 career td passes, breaking Dan Persa’s record of 58 that he set from 2003-06.  In the same game, Devante Cross of Parkland threw for a personal best 313 yards and 2 td’s in the loss.  Tre Jordan of Notre Dame threw for 243 yards and 3 td passes last week.  Jordan leads the District with 1,602 yards passing.  He also went over 6,000 yards for his career and now has 6,111 yards.  Travis Stefanik of Nazareth threw for over 200 yards for the 6th straight game this season.  Tevon Weber of Salisbury joins the “40 td” club and now has 41 career td passes.  Jake Jakobson of Stroudsburg and Ethan Kuczynski of Marian Catholic both reached 30 career td’s for their careers.  Jake Cirillo, a junior from ES South went over 1,000 yards passing for the 3rd year in a row.  He also needs two more td passes this year to reach double digits for the third year in a row.  Juniors, Joe Young of Freedom and Garrett Perschy of Palmerton went over 2,000 yards passing in their careers.


Looking at the career passing charts for District 11: Tre Jordan moves up to 9th place with his 6,111 yards.  He needs 10 yards to go by Ryan Fry of Nazareth and into 8th place.  Erney of Liberty moves up to 12th (5,753).  He needs 123 yards to move into 11th place which would also break Dan Persa’s school record of 5,875 yards.  Julian Spigner of Bethlehem Catholic (4,716) and Devante Cross of Parkland (4,614) move up to 30th and 32nd place respectfully.  For career td passes, Jordan (68) is still in 7th place all-time.  Erney (61) moves into 9th place.  Spigner (53) moves up to 17th and Cross (48) is now tied for 24th place with Mark Borda of Bethlehem Catholic and Chris Palubinsky of Shenandoah Valley.  Bobby Grigas of North Schuylkill is out indefinitely and is tied for 27th with 47 career td’s.


RECEIVERS:  Ethan Price of Southern Lehigh continues to lead the District with his 796 yards receiving and 9 td catches.  Julian Liaci of Nazareth leads the District with 43 catches while Nick Basanese of Notre Dame has 40.  Nate Stewart of Bethlehem Catholic now has 146 career catches for 2,511 yards and 32 td catches.  He is still in 6th place for yardage, but moves up 2 spots into 4th place in catches.  He went by Jeff McGeehin of Central Catholic and Jacob Del Priore of Southern Lehigh.  Both players caught 144 passes in their careers.  Price is now in 61st place all-time with 1,512 yards receiving.  The two year player is 3 yards behind Rob Harper of Notre Dame and Freddie Simmons of Bethlehem Catholic.  Jahan Dotson of Nazareth, who is just a sophomore, is already up to 77th place all-time in the District with his 1,318 yards.  He is 1 yard behind Ryan Waltner of Pius X and is the only player to have over 600 yards receiving in his freshman and sophomore years.  He also broke the career record at Nazareth for td catches. With his 2 last week, he now has 15, breaking the record of Adam Bridgeforth who had 14 from 2010-11.  Mason Donaldson of Salisbury had 2 td catches last week to give him 16 for his career, breaking the tie with John Gardus for the school record.  Donaldson also went over 1,000 yards receiving for his career (1,111).  His junior and senior years are almost identical (35-491-9  &  35-501-7).


Week 6 Trivia:  Ethan Price of Southern Lehigh leads the District with 9 td catches this season.  The Spartans have never had a player catch 10 td passes in a single season.  Price is tied with 2 other players at Southern Lehigh.  Name those 2 players.


Week 5 Trivia:  Which one of these Salisbury receivers is tied with current Falcon Mason Donaldson for the most career td catches.  Antoine Hubbard, John Gardus, Andrew Haldeman, Joey Remmel, Chris Burda, Doug Durepo, Scott Gardus or Jesse Phillips.  John Gardus had 14 td catches.  He had 7 in 2006 and 7 more in 2007. Hubbard and Haldeman each had 12 td catches in their careers.


Week 4 Trivia:  Tevon Murray, a 6’6″ wide receiver from North Schuylkill didn’t catch one of Bobby Grigas’ 3 td passes last week vs Marian Catholic.  That snapped a streak of 11 consecutive games with a td catch.  The District 11 record is 14 consecutive games.  Who holds the record? Kevin Gulyas of Central Catholic.  The streak started in 2010 with the playoffs.  Gulyas caught a td in all 6 playoff games including their win over Bishop McDevitt in the State final.  He then caught a td pass in the first 8 games of the 2011 season.  His streak ended when they played in a snow storm vs Allen.  With Central up 33-0 at halftime, the game was called.  Gulyas caught the only 2 completions from Brendan Nosovitch for 6 yards.


Week 3 Trivia:  Jahan Dotson of Nazareth broke the District 11 record for most catches for a player in their freshman and sophomore seasons.  Dotson has 75 catches so far in his career.  Who held the old record with 72 catches?  Matt Camilletti of Pius X (2008-09).


Week 2 Trivia: Name the only pair of brothers from District 11 to each rush for over 1,000 yards in the same season.  Joe and Jim Agosti of Marian Catholic did the trick in 1976.  Senior Joe, rushed for 1,050 yards and 8 td’s, while brother Jim, a junior rushed for 1,274 yards and 23 td’s (both school records at the time).  Jim would go over 1,200 yards again as a senior in 1977.  Jim totaled 142 points in 1976 to break the old Carbon County scoring record that was held since 1956.  Eddie Kocha of Nesquehoning (also a junior) scored 141 points in 9 games.  The year before in 1975, Marian also had 2 players rush for 1,000 yards each.  Pete Albano rushed for 1,268 yards and Fred Segilia rushed for 1,038 yards.  The head coach for the 1975 and 1976 seasons was Chuck Rocconi.  The following year, Stan Dakosky took over the team and is now in his 38th year.


Week 1 Trivia: Ethan Price of Southern Lehigh also broke the District 11 single game receiving yardage record with his 296 yards.  Who held the old District record? Kevin Gulyas (2011 vs Parkland) of Central Catholic and Quintin Lopez (2004 vs Southern Columbia) of Pius X both had 280 yards in a game.
