STERLING LIMOUSINE AND TRANSPORTATION
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Sterling Limo Offensive Players of the Week
Tommy Santiago, William Tennent – The senior running back, who transferred from Archbishop Wood back to William Tennent this fall, has been an impact player for the Panthers. In last week’s 49-20 win over Academy of Palumbo, Santiago had 203 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. He also had two solo tackles and two assisted tackles, and he returned two punts for 65 yards.
Coach Richard Clemens says: “He’s a guy that comes in and leads by example. We’ve been doing offseason workouts the entire offseason. Tommy joined our team the first day of camp. Your biggest concern - is this guy in shape. You know what he’s done in the past, but has he been working out? He’s the first guy in the sprints, and he works hard every day. You also think, ‘Hey, I’m going to get this running back who had 1900 yards, and it’s going to be all about – how are you going to give me the ball and what are you going to do for me.’ He’s been nothing other than, ‘Hey coach, what can I do to make the team better.’ He’s the consummate team guy, which was really, really nice to see coming in. We’ve been working hard to make William Tennent a respectable program and these guys coming back and fitting in – it’s going a long way.”
Anthony Giordano, Central Bucks East – The junior quarterback had another big night in CB East’s 45-28 win over Hatboro-Horsham. Giordano completed 19-of-24 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 67 rushing yards and three touchdowns, accounting for six touchdowns.
Coach John Donnelly says: “Gio had a productive and efficient night. He completed many different types of throws. He will be the first to tell you that the O-line provided solid protection. Gio is well prepared every week and demands a great deal from himself. Above all of this, he is a tremendous leader.”
Sterling Limo Defensive Players of the Week
Ricardo Delgado, William Tennent – The sophomore middle linebacker, who also transferred from Archbishop Wood, led the defense in William Tennent’s 49-20 win over Academy of Palumbo. Delgado finished the game with 15 tackles and two pass deflections. He also had 35 rushing yards and a touchdown.”
Coach Richard Clemens says: “He’s flying all over the field. His older brother Fern is our free safety and his older brother Armando graduated last year and he was a corner. He’s a hard worker. He came in, never asked for something. He just had the mindset – anything I get I’m going to earn, and he earned it. He was banged up last week – he had a strained knee, so he did that on a strained knee.”
Dillon Sheehy, Council Rock North – The senior linebacker was moved to defensive tackle and was key on both sides of the football in Council Rock North’s 27-6 win over Wissahickon. On defense he led the Indians with 12 tackles, a quarterback sack and a forced fumble. He also gained over 60 yards on the ground.
Coach John Greiner says: “Dillon is a team captain, and he’s going to the Army, which says a lot about him. He’s just the consummate team player. He switched positions for us to accommodate some of the players that got nicked up and banged up and moved from safety to linebacker to defensive tackle, and he probably had the best game I’ve ever seen out of an interior defensive lineman in a long, long time. He proved his weight in gold playing D-line but also running fullback for us as a starter. He’s also on the kickoff team, and he’s the long snapper for punts and going down and making tackles, which shows you a lot. He never takes a play off at all, which is proven by how many positions he plays. I have a saying – machines don’t stop, and he’s an example of that. He never stops going. He keeps going, going, going like a machine. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to coach him, and also the assistant coaches have done a great job coaching him up at the different positions he has played this season for us.
Sterling Limo Special Teams Player of the Week
Mike Liddy, William Tennent – The Panthers’ placekicker was a perfect 7-for-7 on extra points in Williams Tennent’s 49-20 win over Academy of Palumbo. He also handled the kickoffs and punts.
Coach Richard Clemens says: “He can drive the ball between the five and the goal line into the end zone the majority of time, but we didn’t want to take a chance with Palumbo’s speed, so we had him pooch kick it. We recovered one of the pooch kicks. He comes right from soccer to practice. He gets along, he hangs around with guys on the team. He’s a great kid. He’s a guy who came to our offseason stuff and lifted weights. You usually don’t see that out of a kicker. He’s a godsend. We lost Dakota (Wherrity) who was our kicker for three years who’s at Ursinus now kicking, and we have a guy who’s doing just as well. You really couldn’t ask for anything more as far as the kicking game. Collin Leach, our special teams coach, is doing a great job with it, Liddy is doing a good job. Special teams came a long way.”
