Karns City’s Kelsea named Week 7 Football Player of the Week

 

CLARION, Pa. – On a Karns City team were usually no one player stands out, Maverick Kelsea’s performance in Friday’s 58-34 road win at Erie Central Tech was one to remember.

The senior fullback/running back was a key reason the Gremlins racked up nearly 500 yards of offense rushing for 115 yards and three touchdowns on his own and paving the way from his fullback position for the rest of the Karns City runners to add another 300 yards on the ground. For good measure, Kelsea was a force on defense and had a key interception in the fourth quarter.

Those are the main reason, Kelsea is the D9Sports.com District 9 Player of the Week for Week Seven of the 2015 season.

While the award went to Kelsea, it could have gone to any of seven or eight different players in a week that included another 200-yard performance by Smethport’s Adam Shunk, a last-second touchdown by Elk County Catholic’s Eric Gerber and a 300-yard, 5-touchdown game from DuBois’ Matt Miller.

Shunk, Gerber and Miller are all on the Week Seven Honor Roll and are joined by 12 additional players to make up the honor roll.
