Sterling Limo Players of the Week (10-12-18)

Sterling Limousine and Transportation Services of Wrightstown is proud to recognize the Players of the Week. Players are chosen based on the nomination of SOL coaches and football contributors.


Sterling Limo Offensive Player of the Week:
First star:  Adonis Hunter, Cheltenham –
The Panthers’ quarterback was a perfect 8-for-8 for 238 yards and three touchdowns, including two TD passes of over 50 yards. He also had a rushing touchdown, accounting for all four touchdowns in Cheltenham’s 28-14 come-from-behind win over Plymouth Whitemarsh.
Coach Ryan Nase says:  “Adonis has had his struggles over the last two seasons, especially with touch and accuracy, but one of the things he’s always done – he’s been able to throw a deep ball. We have guys out on the edge who can really run. For whatever reason, Plymouth Whitemarsh made the decision they were going to challenge us to beat them on the outside, and we did. Finally having a dry ball and being able to play on turf - which is huge for us with the speed we have as a team not just out on the edge – was big, and Adonis was able to use his strengths to help us as a team.”

Second star:  Caleb Mead, Upper Moreland – The senior running back had 270 yards and four touchdowns on 27 carries to lead Upper Moreland to a 25-15 win over Wissahickon.

Second star:  Evan O’Donnell & Chris Lochetta, Central Bucks East – O’Donnell was 19-for-25 for 220 yards and a touchdown while Lochetta had seven receptions for 116 yards and one TD in Central Bucks East’s 27-20 win over Central Bucks West. The duo connected for a 29-yard touchdown with 1:10 remaining, a touchdown that proved to be the game-winner.

Third star: Andrew Vince, Souderton – The senior quarterback - who also was a force in the defensive backfield - completed 10-of-15 pass attempts for 207 yards and two touchdowns  (no interceptions) in Souderton’s 29-27 loss to North Penn.

Third star: Chris James, Neshaminy – The sophomore running back was a workhorse in Neshaminy’s 33-0 win over William Tennent, finishing with 212 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries.

Sterling Limo Defensive Players of the Week
First star:  Javeer Peterson, Harry S Truman – The senior made a highlight reel game-saving interception near the goal line in the game’s final moments, preserving Harry S Truman’s 29-24 win over Pennsbury. It was Truman’s first win over the Falcons since 2001.
Coach Mike LaPalombara says:  “Javeer never fails to make big plays to help our football team when the opportunity presents itself. It’s great to see him get recognized by several D1 programs in scholarships.

Second star: Lateef “TJ” Harris, Cheltenham – The junior free safety – who also had 107 receiving yards and a touchdown - had 21 tackles and an interception in Cheltenham’s 28-14 win over Plymouth Whitemarsh.

Sterling Limo Special Teams Player of the Week
First star: Mike Smigley, Central Bucks East – The Patriots’ senior kicker connected on a pair of field goals and was 3-for-3 on PATs in Central Bucks East’s 27-20 win over Central Bucks East. He also had a punt of 47 yards that pinned the Bucks inside the 10 and had a kickoff for 56 yards.
Coach John Donnelly says:  “On a second punt, the ball was snapped 30 yards over his head. He retrieved it, spun his body around under pressure and got off a net 18-yard punt, which was incredible considering the circumstances.”

Second star:  Will Leyland, Souderton – The junior kicker connected on 2-of-3 field goals attempts (38 and 40 yards) and also was 3-for-3 on extra points in Souderton’s 29-27 loss to North Penn.
