STERLING LIMOUSINE AND TRANSPORATION
PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
Sterling Limo Suburban One League Co-Player of the Week
Corey Davenport, Norristown –Davenport was the most explosive player in an explosive game as the Eagles soared to a 44-43 overtime victory over Council Rock North. Davenport, who has made his presence felt after returning to the lineup from an injury, torched the Indian defense for 303 yards rushing and scored four touchdowns as N-town overcame a 19-point deficit in the game.
Coach Jason Powel says: “Corey is a natural at running back. His ability to see with his vision from the backfield has given our offensive line confidence in knowing Corey can make them better. Corey is a track star that is starting to show how fast he really is and we look for Corey to be a force towards the stretch.”
Sterling Limo Suburban One League Co-Player of the Week
Reece Udinski, North Penn – Udinski had a spectacular outing as the Knights marched to a 39-14 victory over Souderton. The senior quarterback completed 18 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns to fuel the North Penn offense. Udinski has led the Knights (4-2 overall, 3-0 conference) to an unbeaten SOL National Conference season.
Coach Dick Beck says: “I think his numbers are even more impressive because it was such a wet field, and the ball was muddy. Even though it didn’t rain during the game, it rained heavily before the game. In the last two weeks, we’ve played in some bad conditions, but I think Reece has really shined in those bad conditions. He had six or seven guys catch the ball, so he understands how to spread the wealth to everybody. He’s real good in the pocket, always looking downfield. He doesn’t just lock in one target – he goes through his progressions very well. It helps that he’s 6-3, and it really helps him see over the line.”
Sterling Limo SOL Continental Conference Defensive Player of the Week
Rashon Wiggins, Norristown – The senior defensive end/wide receiver made his presence felt on both sides of the football, but it was his sack on third-and-eight with the Indians driving and the ball on the Eagles’ 40 in a tie game late in the fourth quarter that forced the Indians to punt and set the stage for OT. He also had four batted down passes and four tackles. On the offensive side of the football, he had six receptions.
Coach Jason Powel says: “Rashon Wiggins has been our biggest surprise talent of the season thus far. His remarkable size, speed, and athleticism have been key to our success on both sides of the ball. Rashon has given his heart to the game on the field and has grown this year in leaps and bounds. His upside is through the roof! His leadership by not missing a practice and doing all the things we have asked of him has shown us how much he wants to play and be a part of this team. Look for Rashon Wiggins to get better and better as we go.”
Sterling Limo SOL American Conference Offensive Players of the Week
Upper Moreland offense – The Golden Bears accumulated 504 yards of total offense in UM’s 49-35 upset of previously undefeated Plymouth Whitemarsh, and according to coach Adam Beach, it was a team effort. Playing offensive line were Connor Dolan (right tackle), Ryan Cavanaugh (right guard), Christian Leighton (center), Kevin O’Donnell (left guard) and Tyler Johnston (left tackle). Tight end Ryan Norton and wide receivers Nick Pagano and Ronnie Perrelli also were key. Quarterback Casey Decker accounted for four touchdowns, throwing for 103 yards and two touchdowns and running for 106 yards and two more TDs. Rodney Morgan rushed for 257 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries, and joining Morgan in the backfield was fullback Nick Delucas.
Coach Adam Beach says: “It was just a great offensive effort. To go into PW and to put that many points on a well coached and a quality team like that – people are putting 60 and 80 points on people, but that’s a quality team, and we were able to do that because we were hitting on all cylinders. Our quarterback, Casey Decker, threw the ball well, and he had good fakes – he had an 80-yard run on a fake. He ran the option well. The blocking was great downfield by the receivers, the blocking was great by the offensive line. The receivers ran the ball hard, and when they were asked to catch it, they did, and the running backs all ran well. It was just a great offensive team effort.”
Sterling Limo American Conference Defensive Player of the Week
Jack Rapine, Upper Dublin – The senior linebacker is the anchor of an Upper Dublin defense that has posted back-to-back shutouts. In the Cardinals’ 49-0 win over Wissahickon, Rapine came up with an interception – recovered a fumble – blocked a punt – and had five tackles – all in just two quarters.
Linebacker coach Eric Taylor says: “Eric’s great athletic abilities allow him to contribute in all faces of the game defensively. He has two picks – one for a touchdown, three blocked punts, and he can cover outside runs.”
Sterling Limo SOL National Conference Player of the Week
Kyle Hickey, Council Rock South -Hickey helped set the tone for a dominant offensive performance, rushing for 143 yards on just five carries and scoring two rushing touchdowns. He also had a pair of catches for 43 yards and one touchdown as the Hawks defeated Central Bucks West 50-15.
Coach Vince Bedesem says: “Kyle Hickey is an all-round player for us. He is the quarterback on defense, making calls and adjustments on the field and an all-purpose player on offense that allows us to be multiple in our triple option attack. Kyle brings a discipline to his play, which exemplifies who we are as a team.”
