QUARTERBACKS:

Cole DeFranco of Notre Dame threw for 361 yards and a school record 6 td’s in their win over Saucon Valley.  DeFranco has thrown for 2,717 yards and a school record 35 td’s this season.  Defranco held the old record when he threw 31 last year.  He’s now in 2nd place all-time in the District for passing yards (9,180 yards) and td passes (91).  He bumps Tyler Smith down to 3rd place for career td passes.  Smith had 87 from 2006-09.  Brendan Nosovitch of Central Catholic holds both records when he threw for 9,249 yards and 106 td’s from 2008-11.  Deven Bollinger of Northwestern threw for 251 yards and 2 td’s in their win over Northern Lehigh.  He now holds every major career passing record at the school.  Anthony Harris of Nazareth threw for 4 td’s last week and now has 50 for his career.  Jared Jenkins of Freedom threw 3 td’s vs Central Catholic and now has the school single-season record with 23.  He also broke Joe Young’s career passing yardage school record.  Jenkins now has 4,285 yards while Young threw for 4,214 yards from 2013-16.  Ethan Parvel of Emmaus threw for 217 yards and a 3 td’s last week.  He now has 52 career td passes.  Ejau Colazzo of Dieruff threw for 308 yards and 3 td’s in their loss to Stroudsburg and now has 1,269 yards on the season.  Damon Yost of Pottsville threw for 218 yards and 4 td’s in their 41-40 win over Blue Mountian.  Dalton Leedy of Tri-Valley threw for 221 yards and 3 td’s in their win over Line Mountain.  Bo Meyers of Bangor (1,064), Scott Schwalm of Minersville (1,058), Lawson Bray of PM West (1,106) and Branden Mitchell of ES Soth (1,045) all went over 1,000 yards passing for the season.  Schwalm also went over 2,000 yards for his career.

DISTRICT 11 HISTORY:

On a side note with Bangor kickers, Sergio Moquillot an Argentinian exchange student kicked a 48 yarder in the 1982 LARC game.  That’s the same year the Lehigh County team was heavily favored with all their Division 1 recruits but the Northampton County team won the close game 17-14 with the help off Monquillot’s field goal.
