RUNNINGBACKS:  Darnell Ferrell of Central Catholic finished the season with the 2nd highest rushing total at Central (1,792 yards) and a new school record 42 td’s.  Colin McDermitt has the school record for yardage in a season when he rushed for 3,293 yards and a then school record 41 td’s in 2012.  Ferrell’s career totals show that he rushed for 2,562 yards and scored a total of 55 td’s.  His 55 td’s places him in a tie for 40th place on the all-time District list.  He’s tied with Bob Tarola of Bethlehem Catholic (1965-67) and John Gruver of Palisades (2005-08).  Ferrell scored at least 4 td’s in 8 of his 11 games he played this year.  Zach Barket of Schuylkill Haven holds the Distict record with 13 games (played 15) with 4 or more td’s including a stretch of 8 consecutive games.  QB Thoman Melchiorre of ESN finished the season rushing for 1,681 yards while scoring 21 td’s.  He fell 17 yards short of breaking his own school record of 1,697 yards that he set last year.  He scored 21 td’s for the second year in a row which also ties the school record that Joe Clouse set in 2011.  Melchiorre’s career 4,372 yards rushing is the most ever in the District by a full time quarterback (more on that in this weeks trivia).  His 53 career td’s places him a tie for 44th place all-time in the District with Sean Bleiler of Parkland (1997-99) and Ahkeem Smith of Liberty (2005-07).  Dylan Rabuck of Williams Valley continues to lead the District with his 1,836 rushing yards.  Rabuck broke Matt Miller’s school record of 1,719 yards (2014) when he rushed for 151 yards and 3 td’s last week.  The junior needs 55 yards to reach 3,000 yards rushing for his career.  Gunner Anglovich of Liberty went over 1,000 yards for the second year in a row and finished with 1,063 yards.  Gunner finished his career with 2,532 yards rushing while scoring 34 td’s.  Logan Sterner of Pen Argyl joins the “40 td” club and now has exactly 40 td’s for his career.  Sterner and teammate Logan Ruppert have been positioned right behind each other on the chart for the last 2 weeks.  Ruppert, the senior quarterback has rushed for 2,240 yards in his career while Sterner, the junior tailback has rushed for 2,141 yards in his career.  Ruppert is the younger brother of Rich who threw for 2,831 career yards and 32 td’s at Pius X from 2001-03.  Their father Rich played football at Notre Dame from 1978-80.  Sterner is now in 4th place at Pen Argyl with his single season rushing yardage (1,455) and td’s (26).  Junior, Luke Strauss of Southern Lehigh has rushed for 1,374 yards while scoring 18 td’s this season.  Sone Ntoh of Emmaus has scored 20 td’s this season which is the 3rd highest at Emmaus behind Kyle Boney’s 41 td’s set last year and Andrew Davidson’s 29 that he had in 2014.  Teammate, Lubens Myers has rushed for 1,131 yards this year and now sits just outside the top 10 at Emmaus.  Mike Mayernik of Lehighton went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season vs Notre Dame last week.  Mayernik finished the season with 1,046 yards while scoring 14 td’s.  Major Jordan of North Schuylkill rushed for 237 yards and 4 td’s in their win over Jim Thorpe.  That propelled Jordan over 2,000 yards for his career (2,109 yards).  Randy Terry III of Bethlehem Catholic also went over 2,000 yards rushing for his career.  Terry now has 2,071 yards.  Mitch Daniel of Notre Dame has scored 18 td’s this year, matching his season total of last year.  Daniel needs 2 td’s to join the “40 td” club.  Mike Mitchel of Pleasant Valley ends his career with single season school records for rushing yardage (1,486) and td’s (25).  Chris Monaco of Pocono Mountain rushed for 203 yards and 4 td’s vs Allen last week.  He also returned the 2nd half kick-off for his 5th td of the game.  Monaco went over 1,000 yards rushing on the season and finished with 1,057.  He also caught 27 passes for 534 yards to join the single season 1,000 rush/500 receiving club.  Monaco ended the season scoring a total of 19 td’s which pushes his career total to 33.  Both of those totals are 2nd best at PMW, trailing only Franklyn Quiteh’s 30 td’s he had in 2008 and his 34 he totaled from 2007-08.  Monaco sits in the top 6 in every rushing and receiving category for a single season and career at PMW.  Zach Petiet of Saucon Valley moves into 4th place for a single season at Saucon with his 22 td’s this year.  Wayne Marish drops down to fifth with his 21 td’s he scored in 1968.  Jamaal Brome of Stroudsburg ends his career with 3,101 yards rushing with 44 td’s.  Brome and ESN’s Melchiorre combined to score 97 career td’s.  All 97 were rushing td’s.  Junior quarterback Matt Lewandowski of Mahanoy Area ended the season with 1,002 rushing yards and 15 td’s scored.


QUARTERBACKS:  Zachary Gilbert of Whitehall threw for 252 yards and a school record 5 td’s in their win over East Stroudburg North.  Gilbert went over 2,000 yards for the season (2,083) and is closing in on Chad Schwenk’s school single season record of 2,163 yards.  Gilbert’s 5 td passes breaks the old record of 4 td’s previously held by 6 players.  They were; Bill Grammes (1967), Matt Schultz (1995), Mike Gnai (2003), Chris Polony (2008), Giani Sinatore (2014) and Gilbert himself earlier this year.  Gilbert now has 23 td passes for the season which breaks the old record of 21 set by Giani Sinitore in 2014 as a junior.  Ethan Persa of Central Catholic threw for 243 yards vs Bethlehem Catholic putting him over 2,000 yards passing for the season and over 4,000 yards for his career.  Persa has the 3rd highest single season total at Central with his 2,128 yards as he trails only Brendan Nosovitch’s junior and senior seasons.  His 18 td passes this year places him in a 6th place tie with Josh Hinkle (2003).  Jake Cirillo of East Stroudsburg South finishes the season with 2,133 yards passing and 26 td passes.  That puts him in second place at ESS in both categories.  Robbie Moyer still holds the school records with his 2,783 yards and 35 td passes.  Cirillo finishes his career with 6,438 yards and 69 td passes.  Cirillo’s career passing yards and td passes place him in 9th place all-time in the District.  Brandon Keyes of Pleasant Valley finishes his junior year with District leading totals of 2,419 yards passing and 33 td passes.  Keyes went over 3,000 yards passing for his career and now has 3,088 yards.  He threw 1 td pass vs Easton last week and now joins the “40 td” club with 40 exactly.  Travis Stefanik of Nazareth joins the 2,000/2,000 yard club.  Stefanik ends his career with 2,047 yards rushing and 5,342 yards passing.  Stefanik scored 24 career td’s while throwing for a school record 60 career td’s.  Stefanik threw for over 2,000 yards as both a junior and senior.  His career yardage places him in 22nd on the District career list and his 60 td passes puts him in a 12th place tie with Dan Kendra III of Bethlehem Catholic.  Schuylkill Haven’s quarterback Danny Lozada needs 62 yards rushing to join the 2,000/2,000 yard club.  Lozada has scored 30 career td’s while also throwing for 20 td’s in his career.  Garrett Perschy of Palmerton has thrown for 1,950 yards so far this season and needs 81 yards to break Brian Morgan’s school record of 2,030 yards set in 1989.  Perschy has thrown for 18 td’s this season and is now tied with Matt Falcone (2008) for the school’s single season record.  Perschy moves up on the all-time District career list and into 39th place.  His 4,390 yards moved him ahead of Brian Kennedy (Marian Catholic), Tevon Weber (Salisbury), Josh Hinkle (Dieruff/C. Catholic), Aaron Brown (Dieruff) and Matt Long (Jim Thorpe).    Cole DeFranco now has 2,198 yards and 18 td passes this year.  DeFranco’s yardage moves him into 2nd place for passing yardage in a single season at Notre Dame.  Ric Schumacher had 2,150 yards in 1992.  DeFranco’s td passes puts him in a 2nd place tie with Schumacher.  Deven Bollinger of Northwestern wraps up his freshman season with school single records for completions (116), attempts (214) and passing yardage (1,872).  His 20 td passes are one short of the school record that is held by Frank Dangello (2014).  Joe Young of Freedom has thrown for 1,489 yards on the season which puts him in 6th place at Freedom for a single season.  He’s 1 yard behind Brian Uliana who threw for 1,490 yards in 2012.  His 14 td passes still has him tied with Ryan Tress (2008) for 5th place at Freedom.   Young is now in 50th place on the District career list with his 3,956 yards.  Sophomore, Logan Edmond of Southern Lehigh has thrown for 1,604 yards and 18 td passes so far this season. Those totals move him into the top 5 for a single season at the school.


RECEIVERS:  Trevor Cunningham of Northwestern finished the season with school records of 52 receptions and 1,108 yards receiving.  He also tied Cam Richardson with 14 td catches.  Cunningham also rushed for 395 yards and scored 21 total td’s.  The 21 td’s ties him with Carl Wentz (1970) for 6th best at Northwestern.  Tim Walter of Southern Lehigh has now caught 50 passes for 779 yards and 10 td’s this season.  His career totals are 128 catches for 2,086 yards and 27 td catches.  His career receptions moves him up to 10th place all-time in the District.  He’s 1 catch behind Wilson’s Adam Thomas.  His yardage has him in 14th place on the career list.  John Murphy of ES South finishes his season with 69 catches for 1,031 yards and 21 td catches.  He leads the District in receptions with his school record 69 catches.  He finishes with the 2nd highest yardage total at ESS.  Dan Cason still holds the school record with his 1,095 yards.  Murphy’s 21 td catches this year are the 2nd highest ever in the District behind Central Catholic’s Kevin Gulyas’s 27 he had in 2011.  Desmond Boykin of Whitehall caught 3 passes (all for td’s) for 101 yards vs ESN to up his season totals to 64 catches for 960 yards and 10 td catches.  The 64 catches is one short of the school record held by Tyler Artim (2010).  His yardage breaks the school record of 910 yards that was held by Nick Sommer (2012).  Boykin now has 16 career td catches which breaks the school record previously held by Jim Potocnie.  Potocnie had 15 career td catches from 2003-05).  Felix Alvarez of Allen finished the season catching 43 passes for 524 yards and 5 td’s.  His catches ties him with Reggie Gardner for 3rd best at Allen.  He’ll enter his senior season with career totals of 70 catches for 793 yards and 7 td catches.  He has a chance to become the first Canary to catch at least 1 td pass in all 4 years.  Alec Huertas of Freedom has caught 43 passes for 604 yards and 8 td’s so far this season.  His catches move him into 3rd place at Freedom while his yardage lifts him into 5th place.  Nazareth teammates Julian Liaci and Zac Keifer almost had identical receiving stats this year.  Liaci had 38 catches for 668 yards and 9 td’s, while Keifer had 37 catches for 663 yards and 9 td’s.  Liaci ended his career with 93 catches for 1,338 yards and 16 td catches.  All 3 totals are top 5 at Nazareth.  Jalen Simpson of Notre Dame has caught 55 passes for 686 yards and 6 td’s so far this year.  His 55 catches ties him with Aaron Cerrone for 4th highest at the school.  His 686 yards squeezes him between Paul Delveccio (684) and Cletus Kilker (699) and into 6th place at Notre Dame.  Mike Stasko of Palmerton has 44 catches on the season which puts him a 3 way tie for 3rd highest at the school.  He’s currently tied with Chris Hager (1989) and Austin Cseh (2008).  He sits in 5th place with his 663 receiving yards.  Stasko has 8 td catches this year and is tied with Dick Werkheiser and Eric Bollinger for 3rd highest at Palmerton.  Werkheiser caught 8 td passes 65 years ago in 1951 while Bollinger had 8 in 1993.  Justin Richardson of Pleasant Valley finished the season with single season school records of 50 receptions for 1,074 yards and 15 td catches.  His career yardage (1,463) and td catches (20) are also school records.


KICKERS:  The year 2000 was a big year for kickers.  Sam Segond of ESS kicked 9 field goals while Derek Eckert of Wilson and Justin Kaschner of Pleasant Valley both kicked 8 that year.  Nate Strohl of Whitehall kicked a 48 yarder, Matt Mathews of Easton kicked a 47 yarder, Kyle Landis of Emmaus kicked a 45 yarder and Brian Hendershot of Pen Argyl kicked a 40 yarder.


Week 11 Trivia:  As stated above, ES North’s Thomas Melchiorre’s 4,372 yards rushing is a District career record for quarterbacks.  Name the other 4 quarterbacks that are in the top 5 (strictly a quarterback for their career). 


Week 10 Trivia:  Ethen Aquino of Wilson caught 27 passes as a freshman and 21 as a sophomore.  Name the 5 players in the District to have at least 20 receptions as a freshman and a sophomore.  Jahan Dotson of Nazareth (60-65), Matt Camilletti of Pius X (36-36), OJ Grow of Williams Valley (30-34), Austyn Borre of Pleasant Valley (24-20) and Nate Stewart of Pius (23-26). 


Week 9 Trivia: Dashaun Peterson of Freedom became the 9th Patriot to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season.  How many of the other 8 rushers can you name and who is only player at Freedom to do it twice? Mike Lawrence, Kyle Moore, Frank Copper, Dave Walters, Ediie Mateo, Darrius Webb, Okezie Alozie.  Lawrence was the first to reach 1,000 yards and the only one to do it twice.  He had 1,072 yards as a junior in 1982 and 1,289 yards in 1983.


Week 8 Trivia: Brandon Keyes of Pleasant Valley threw 6 td passes in week 7 and 5 in week 8.  At first it looked like he also threw 6 td’s last week but his first td pass he actually threw 2 yards behind him to Justin Richardson and it was counted as a lateral and a td run for Richardson.  With that being said.  Who’s the only District quarterback to throw for 6 td’s in back to back games? Don Rubright of Slatington threw for 6 td’s in back to back games against Catasauqua and Whitehall in 1969.  Rubright a junior that year, ended the season throwing for 1,581 yards and a school record 21 td’s.  Karl Andreas who went on to play at Clemson, caught 29 passes for 591 yards and 10 td’s.  The team finished the season 10-0.  They had tough wins over Pennridge (13-6), Lehighton (12-0), Northampton (25-16), Stroudsburg (22-12) and Upper Perkiomen (14-0) to go along with their other 5 wins over Parkland (39-6), Emmaus (29-0), Catasauqua (54-0), Whitehall (60-6) and lastly a Thanksgiving morning win over Palmerton (62-0).


Week 7 Trivia:  Northampton football has won many league championships and has had many powerhouse teams.  They also play an extra game each year vs Catasauqua on Thanksgiving morning.  But they’ve only had 8 players that rushed for 1,000 yards in a season.  How many of the 8 can you name and who holds the record? Denny Onkotz (1965), Mike Drexler (1981 & 1982), Jim Scott (1997), Phil Hard (1999), Jeff Pammer (2003), Devin Kline (2004) and the record holder was the last one to do it.  Shane Fenningham rushed 1,257 yards in 2008 (13 games) breaking Onkotz’s old record of 1,234 yards (8 games).


Week 6 Trivia: Carson’s 48 yard field goal vs BECA is not a school record.  Dalton’s 7 field goals in one season isn’t a school record either.  Who kicked the longest field goal in Emmaus history and who kicked the most field goals in one season at Emmaus? Mike Wascura kicked a 49 yarder vs BECA in 1999.  Austin O’Brien kicked 8 field goals as a sophomore in 2008.


Week 5 Trivia: Deven Bollinger of Northwestern went over 1,000 yards passing last week to become the 9th freshman to do accomplish that in District 11.  How many of the other 8 can you name and who did first? Jake Cirillo (ESS 2013), AJ Long (Pius X 2010), Alex Atiyeh (Dieruff 2003), Ryan Fry (Nazareth 1995), Brent Andrew (Marian Catholic 1994), Jim Weidle (Mahanoy Area 1992), Dan Kendra III (BECA 1991) and the first to do it was Ric Schumacher of Notre Dame in 1988.


Week 4 Trivia: Desmond Boykin of Whitehall had 207 yards receiving last week vs Liberty.  That is not a school record.  Who holds the school record for most receiving yards in a game at Whitehall?  HINT: He was a “one game wonder”.  Question #2… I’ll make it a little bit easier.  Boykin became the 8th Zephyr to go over 1,000 yards receiving in their career.  How many of the other 7 players can you name?  In a 31-14 Thanksgiving day loss to Emmaus in 1988, Fred Delucia had 9 catches for a school record 228 yards.  In Stan Luckenbill’s last game as head coach, Delucia caught 4 passes from starter Dave Swartley in the first half.  Then, in the second half Luckenbill inserted sophomore qb Mike Buskirk.  Buskirk connected with Delucia 5 times for 155 yards and 2 td’s.  Question 2 answer: Mike Peters, Adam Skrapits, Joel Cesare, Jim Potocnie, Matt Hamscher, Tyler Artim and Conner Sullivan.


Week 3 Trivia:  Joe Young of Freedom (3,001 career passing yards) needs 393 passing yards to break the school record.   Who holds the record with 3,393 passing yards for their career at Freedom?  Jeff Haberl threw for 3,393 yards from 1995-96.  Haberl would throw for 1,443 yards (16 td’s) as a junior and then throw for 1,950 yards (19 td’s) as a senior.  He would complete 71 passes for 1,459 yards and 14 td’s to his bookend wide receivers Matt Kacanda and Trent Clark.


Week 2 Trivia:

No player in the District rushed for 200 yards last week.  When was the last time that happened in the regular season? There’s been a player in District 11 rush for at least 200 yards in 51 consecutive regular season weeks and counting.  I’m currently back to 2010 (week 10) researching to find a 200 yard rusher.


Week 1 Trivia:  Mitch Daniel of Notre Dame rushed for over 1,000 yards (1,096) and caught passes for over 500 yards (525) in 2015.  Who is the only other player in District 11 to accomplish this?  Hint: He played D1, but didn’t play offense.  Kyshoen Jarrett of East Stroudsburg South rushed for 1,027 yards and caught 33 passes for 591 yards in 2010.  Jarrett had a successful career at Virginia Tech making 249 career tackles from his safety position.
