Team of the week– Exeter Township. Exeter went into Manheim Central as the number 7 seed and took care of a business with a 43-27 win. Exeter dominated in all phases of the game and took a 36-0 lead at the half. It was a dominating performance all around for Exeter. Next up for Exeter is to visit Cedar Cliff.
Coach of the week– Doug Dahms of Wilson. After starting 2-3 on the year all Wilson has done is win 7 straight including a 14-11 thriller over number 1 Central York Friday night. Next up for Wilson is a visit to Harrisburg for the District 3 6A Championship game.
Player of the week-Quarterback Brad Hoffman of Wilson. Hoffman rushed for 167 yards including 2 touchdowns in a big win against number 1 seed Central York. He also eclipsed over 1,000 yards rushing on the year this Friday night.
Play of the week– Waggle. Waggle is an old Wing-T play. It is a play-action roll-out passing play. The Quarterback fakes the handoff then reverses out the opposite way. The Quarterback basically fakes the ball and then turns it back to the defense, then he flips around and looks for his target. The 1st read is the fullback or running back in the flat, then the tight end dragging across the field is usually the second read. This use to be a Wing-T play, but now I see college spread teams run it as well.
Football has 4 downs, so here are 4 thoughts from what I saw, watched, and heard this week:
1) Huge shout out to Kennard-Dale for their 1st Playoff win in school history. Kennard-Dale beat Donegal Friday night, now has to travel to Lampeter-Strasburg to face the red-hot LS team who has not lost since week 1.
2) Governor Mifflin cruised again with a 63-35 win over Warwick. Mifflin looks like a strong favorite to win 5A. Led by Penn State running back commit Nicholas Singleton Mifflin seems like a team on the mission.
3) Kudos to York Catholic 2A District 3 Champs after their win against Upper Dauphin Friday night. York Catholic is 11-0 on the season and will continue onto the state playoffs. Also, shout out to Steelton-Highspire with a 1A District 3 Championship as well.
4) Hempfield, Central York, and Manheim Central all lost Friday night. All three won section titles and had really successful years. It is disappointing to lose in the playoffs, but all three should be proud of what they accomplished this year and to keep their heads up.
