SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. – No one would blame Clarion-Limestone’s Austin Newcomb if he went home Saturday night and created himself in Madden 2018.

After all, the game Newcomb played Saturday in Duke Center against Otto-Eldred was video-game like.

Newcomb accounted for 410 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns including 321 offensive yards and four scores in the Lions 74-34 win over the Terrors that set the C-L school record for points scored in a game. He ran 23 times for 265 yards and four touchdowns, caught four passes for 56 yards and returned a kickoff 74 yards for a touchdown (he had 15 additional return yards on the night). If that wasn’t enough, he was also a force on defense making 10 tackles, picking off a pass, causing a fumble and recovering a fumble.

With this week’s award, Newcomb becomes the first repeat winner this year having also taken home Player of the Week honors in Week Two.

Joining Newcomb in being honored this week are 15 players on the District 9 Honor Roll for Week Five.

The Player of the Week and Honor Roll honors will continue through the conclusion of the regular season.
