bristolLast weekend, Donte Simmons rushed for 184 yards to lead his team to a 19-6 win over Delaware County Christian in the District One Class A football championship game.

In that game Simmons broke Bristol’s all-time career rushing record of 4,330 yards held by Woodrow Vorters, who did it 2010. The junior running back now has 4,394 rushing yards in his career.

“Donte has been great for us,” said head football coach Leo Plenski. “He sets the tone for our offense. We are a little more of a passing team this year, but it always starts with him.”

This season he has rushed for over 1,800 yards and 27 touchdowns and he has one kick-off return.

“He’s the leader of the offense. If he is having a good game, that means we are having a good game.”

His team will play Schuylkill Haven this Friday night at Blue Mountain High School.

“They have a big offensive line and are a physical team. We are very excited for this opportunity again.”

Bristol won their first playoff game in school history last year against Williams Valley, shutting them out 20-0.

“On defense, he can play at linebacker, safety and corner. So where ever we need him in a big moment, he will be on the football field for us.”
