RUNNING BACKS:  Evan Culver of Saucon Valley rushed for 242 yards and 5 td’s last week. He takes over the District lead for rushing yardage (1,607) and td’s (27).  Culver also tied the school record with his 5 td’s.  Walt Schmidt (1955) and Nick Savant (2013) each scored 5 td’s in a game.  Culver (3,010 yards) needs 3 yards to break Savant’s career rushing yardage record.  Logan Sterner of Pen Argyl rushed for 270 yards and 5 td’s in their win over Wilson.  Sterner’s 5 td’s ties the school record held by 7 other players.  They are; Gil Strunk, Gary Heard, Barry Wooley, Woody Petchel, Ed McGinley, Jake DeBoer and Dylan Evans.  Logan, just a sophomore, is the son of former Green Knight Rick Sterner.  Rick (1985-87) rushed for over 1,000 yards in both his junior and senior years and ended his career with 3,001 yards rushing and 32 td’s.  Nysir Minney-Gratz of Easton rushed for 302 yards in their win over Liberty.  Minney-Gratz became the second Rover to ever go over 300 yards rushing in a game.  Juan Gaddy rushed for 314 yards against Phillipsburg in 1991.  Wyatt Clements of Lehighton scored 4 td’s last week to break Robbie Frey’s school record for career td’s.  Clements now has 59 career td’s.  Frey racked up 58 td’s from 2004-06.  Antwon Keenan of Bethlehem Catholic now has 30 career td’s and Thomas Melchiorre of ES North now has 25 td’s.  Harry Hall of Northwestern rushed for 223 yards last week.  That performance moves him up to 13th place all-time for career rushing yards in the District (4,720).  Austyn Borre of Pleasant Valley leads all active players with 61 career td’s.  Clements (59) is 2 behind, while Culver (56) is 5 and Hall (54) is 7 behind Borre.  Mike Stasko of Palmerton has now scored 19 td’s this season to move into second place all-time at the school for a single season.  Stasko moves ahead of Justin Petersen who scored 18 times in 2007.  In 1998, Chris Siracuse set the record when he scored 20 td’s.  Mitch Daniel of Notre Dame scored 4 td four different ways last week.  Daniel’s had a 41 yard run, 100 yard interception, 49 yard td catch and recovered a fumble in the end zone.  Daniel now has 14 td’s on the season.

Looking at the career passing charts for District 11: Tre Jordan moves up to 5th place all-time with his 6,610 yards.  He went ahead of Ric Schumacher of Notre Dame (6,490) and AJ Long of Pius X (6,552).  Doug Erney of Liberty remains in 11th place (6,007 yards) and is 80 yards behind Dan Kendra lll from Bethlehem Catholic.  Julian Spigner of Bethlehem Catholic (5,126) is now in 22nd place.  Devante Cross of Parkland (4,939) moves up to 28th place.  Jake Cirillo of ES South jumped up 15 spots and into 51st place all-time with his 247 yards last week.  McCole of Shenandoah Valley moves up 14 spots and is now in 70th place.  Tyler Cann of Lehighton is 4 yards behind McCole.  Lower on the list and making the biggest jump is Travis Stefanik of Nazareth.  He moves up 27 spots and into 126th place.  For career td passes: Jordan (74) is now in 6th place all-time, one ahead of Wilson’s DJ Lenehan.  Erney (63) is still in 9th place.  Spigner (54) moves into a tie for 16th place with Barry Kennedy of Catasauqua.  Cross (51) is now in 22nd place.  Bobby Grigas of North Schuylkill is tied for 25th place with 48 career td’s.


RECEIVERS:  Ethan Price of Southern Lehigh leads the District in reception yardage with 1,041.  That breaks the old school record held previously by Jacob Del Priore.  Del Priore had 1,006 yards in 2013.  Price also set the single season td reception record (13 now) last week, when he caught 3 more in their win over Northern Lehigh.  Nate Stewart of Bethlehem Catholic now has 151 career catches for 2,549 yards and 32 td catches.  He breaks the tie with OJ Grow of Williams Valley and now takes sole possession of 3rd place all-time with his 151 catches. Jahan Dotson of Nazareth caught 10 passes for 184 yards and a td last week vs Whitehall.  Dotson now has 48 catches for the season and takes over the District lead from his teammate Julian Liaci.  Dotson is the quickest player in District 11 history to reach 100 receptions and 1,500 receiving yards.  No other player has ever achieved those totals before their junior year.  The highest totals before Dotson were Matt Camilletti of Pius X with 72 catches and OJ Grow of Williams Valley had 1,163 yards before their junior year.  Dotson moved into second place all-time at Nazareth for career receptions and reception yardage.  He moves ahead of Adam Bridgeforth and is closing in on Chris Carr’s school records of 110 catches for 1,677 yards.  Carr set those records from 1986-88.  Dotson is tied with Anthony Gaetinello with 10 receiving td’s in a season.  On the other end of the spectrum, receivers that only played their junior and senior years, Ethan Price now has the third highest yardage total in the District.  Price (1,757 yards) went ahead of Billy Krebs (1,701 yards) of Bethlehem Catholic.  He trails only Dan Cason (1,820) of ES South and Quintin Lopez of Pius X (1,882).  Price’s 1,757 career receiving yards is also tied for 29th place all-time in the District with Whitehall’s Tyler Artim.  Mike Kane of Saucon Valley joins teammate Nate Harka in the 1,000 yard career receiving club.  Harka currently has 1,160 yards and Kane has 1,031 yards.  Kane caught a td pass against Bangor last week to give him 15 career td catches, tying him with Sean Crouthamel (1990-92) for the school record.  Harka is still 1 behind with 14 td catches.  Joel Santana of Shenandoah Valley caught 10 passes last week and now has 43 catches on the season.  Santana works his way onto the chart as does Minney-Gratz of Easton, Keenan of Bethlehem Catholic, Darion Jacoby of Pottsville and Mike Stasko of Palmerton.

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.
