Mid-Penn Football - Week 2 - Movers & Shakers
The 2017 Mid-Penn football season is now in full swing and it is time once again for the Wizard to quickly recap the big moments of the week -
East Pennsboro moved to the middle of the Capital Division, moving from 6th to 4th lead once again by Onasis Neely who went for 6 TDs (5 TDs rushing and 1 TD receiving) along with an impressive 254 yard, averaging over just 10 yards per carry. Expect East Pennsboro to continue climbing the power ratings as they face a Greencastle team that will unlikely be able to slow the Neely train down. What's the over/under on Onasis getting to 1,000 yards by game 4?!?!
Most Powerful Win
The State College Little Lions (1-0), one of the few teams in the Mid-Penn not in District 3, faced off against District 6 rival the Hollidaysburg Golden TIgers (2-0). While Hollidaysburg QB Brady Walters was able to manager the game effectively going 11-19 passing with 3 TDs and 0 INTs, the Little Lions rushing attack was overpowering. Isaiah Edwards, Tristen Lyons and Tommy Frieberg each rushed less than 15 times, but were all able to surpass the century mark in rushing to lead State College to a 55-27 victory.
Most Powerful Individual Performance
Playing against Harrisburg, one of the best teams in PA, and getting blanked is tough. Having to come back the next week and lead your team against a very strong Canisius, NY is even tougher. Rallying in the 4th quarter to give you team a season altering win while passing for 3 TDs and 300+ yards is what a Most Powerful Performance is made of. That is why Chase Diehl of Bishop McDevitt is The Wizard's Week 2 Most Powerful Performance.
