District 11 Notes – Week 2

Written by: on Monday, September 12th, 2016

 
DISTRICT NOTES:
 
RUNNINGBACKS:  Darnell Ferrell of Central Catholic rushed for 191 yards and scored 5 td’s in their comeback win over Pleasant Valley.  Ferrell had 3 rushing td’s to go along with a 46 yard reception td and a 78 yard kick-off return td.  Kei’dre Taylor of Minersville also rushed for 191 yards and 3 td’s in their win over Shenandoah Valley.  Nick Breiner of Tamaqua has scored 3 td’s in each of his first 2 games.  Mitch Daniel of Notre Dame scored 4 td’s in their win over Bangor.  Daniel leads the District with his 7 td’s and now has 27 for his career.  Jamaal Brome of Stroudsburg and Gunner Anglovich of Liberty both have 25 career td’s.  Timmy Walter of Southern Lehigh now has 31 career td’s.  Jarrad Pope of East Stroudsburg South leads the District with 340 yards rushing.  Ferrell and Richie Zahodnick of North Schuylkill went over 1,000 yards rushing for their careers.  Zahodnick’s bid to become a career 1,000 yard rusher and receiver might not happened as he is stuck at 955 career receiving yards.  Zahodnick is playing quarterback this year.
QUARTERBACKS:  Jake Cirillo of East Stroudsburg South threw for 288 yards and 3 td’s in their win over Pocono Mountain East.  Cirillo is closing in on Robbie Moyer’s career school record for passing yardage.  Moyer threw for 4,875 yards and 57 td passes from 2007-09.  Cirillo is currently at 4.686 yards and 47 td passes.  Cody Scherer of Lehighton threw for 240 yards and 3 more td’s in their 27-20 loss to Schuylkill Haven.  Joe Young of Freedom threw for another 3 td’s in their win over Allen.  Young was 7 for 7 for 171 yards.  Scherer and Young share the District lead with 6 td passes each.  Andrew Brett of Catasauqua completed 25 passes for 302 yards and 5 td’s in their 39-31 win over Northern Lehigh.  That’s the 2nd week in a row Brett had 25 completions.  The difference this week was that Brett threw 5 td’s vs no td’s last week.  The 5 td’s also ties Zack Bradley’s school record.  Brett is 50 for 66 (76%) for a District leading 599 yards.  Brandon Keyes of Pleasant Valley and Hunter Kennedy of Panther Valley threw for over 200 yards again this week.  Logan Yoder of Tri-Valley threw for 243 yards and 2 td’s in their loss to Newport.  Cameron Clark of Wilson, Keyes, Thad Zuber of Tamaqua, Mason Freed of Blue Mountain, Ryan McDonald of Nativity and Derek Sheaffer of Emmaus all went over 1,000 yards passing for their careers last week.  All but Freed and Sheaffer are juniors.  With all the young qb’s this year, they’ll have to wait to get onto the chart until they throw for 1,000 yards.
RECEIVERS:  John Murphy of East Stroudsburg South caught 7 passes for a school record 190 yards and 3 td’s vs PME.  Dan Cason held the old record when he had 177 yards against Scranton in 2009.  Earl Palmer still holds the school record with 4 td catches in a game.  Jim Vanhorn threw for 5 td’s vs Bangor in 1961 with 4 of them going to Palmer.  Timmy Walter of Southern Lehigh, Ryan Greene of Catasauqua, Greg Zehner of Lehighton and Justin Richardson of Pleasant Valley each caught passes for at least 100 yards for the second game in a row.  Richardson leads the District with 298 receiving yards.  Greene’s teammate Miguel Hernandez caught 11 passes for 148 yards and 2 td’s.  The 11 catches ties the school record held by Matt Andrews.  Andrews caught 11 passes in a game in both 1995 and 1996.  Walter went over the 1,500 yards receiving last week and now 86 catches for 1,544 yards and 20 td catches.  His 20 td’s is two behind school record holder Ethan Price.  Price just set the record last year.   Darian Street of Liberty caught 4 passes for 176 yards (44 avg) and 2 td’s in their 28-21 win over Easton.  Street also had an 81 yard td called back when he stepped out of bounds before catching the pass.  Josh Artis of Emmaus caught 8 passes for 136 yards and 2 td’s in their win over Whitehall.
Week 2 Trivia:
No player in the District rushed for 200 yards last week.  When was the last time that happened in the regular season?
Week 1 Trivia:  Mitch Daniel of Notre Dame rushed for over 1,000 yards (1,096) and caught passes for over 500 yards (525) in 2015.  Who is the only other player in District 11 to accomplish this?  Hint: He played D1, but didn’t play offense.  Kyshoen Jarrett of East Stroudsburg South rushed for 1,027 yards and caught 33 passes for 591 yards in 2010.  Jarrett had a successful career at Virginia Tech making 249 career tackles from his safety position.
