Boney leads D-11 in touchdowns

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 by DUKE HELMSpecial to the Press in Sports

This football season featured a bevy of playmakers in District 11.

Many of those players eclipsed school records and some even took down district records on their way to memorable season.

The following is a list of those accomplishments compiled by statistician Duke Helm through the first week of the postseason.

RUNNING BACKS

Evan Culver of Saucing Valley went over 2,000 yards rushing for the season during week 11 to up his total to 2,125 yards on the season, which is 10 yards behind Saucon’s record holder Nick Savant. Savant racked up 2,135 yards in 12 games in 2013. Culver is also the career leader at Saucon with 4,128 yards rushing and has scored a total of 63 touchdowns.

Wyatt Clements of Lehighton scored 2 TD’s in his team’s win over Blue Mountain to increase his carrer mark to 64. Clements was held under 100 yards for the first time this year. He needed exactly 100 yards to reach 4,000 yards for his career.

Culver and Clements squared off on Saturday night, as both players also start on defense. The two have combined to rush for 8,028 career yards and score 127 touchdowns.

Harry Hall of Northwestern had 59 career TD’s, moving him into a 32nd place tie all-time in the district with Brendan Nosovitch of Central Catholic. Through 11 games this season, Hall had 4,969 yards rushing for his career, moving him ahead of Nick Frantz of Pine grove and into ninth place all-time.

Kyle Boney of Emmaus rushed for 311 yards and 7 TDs in a win over Williamsport. Boney improved his district-leading total to 2,313 yards rushing. That breaks Andrew Davidson’s one-year old school record of 2,042 yards. Boney’s 7 scores also breaks the school record of six and gives him a district-leading 37 for the year. Both Joe Williams in 2010 and Boney himself (earlier this year) each scored six times in a game. Boney headed into the Eastern Conference final against Reading with 47 career touchdowns, which breaks the school record of 45 previously held by CJ Billera (2006-08).

Nysir Minney-Gratz of Easton reached 1,796 yards rushing this year in his team’s first-round playoff win, moving him into third place at Easton for a single season. Brad Piperata moves down to fourth place with his 1,775 yards that he rushed for in 2003.

Mitch Daniel of Notre Dame went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season and had 1,041 on the year heading into the Class AA district title game against Northwestern..

Robert Heller of Jim Thorpe became the second Olympian to rush for over 3,000 yards in a career. Heller went over 3,000 in the last game of his career and finished with 3,038 yards. Jason Figura holds the school record with 3,403 yards in his career (2001-04). Heller finished with 20 TD’s this year (second-best to Figura’s 24) and 35 for his career (fourth best). His 1,483 yards rushing fell 87 yards short of the school record held by Ryan Saunders.

Antwon Keenan of Bethlehem Catholic finished the season scoring 33 TD’s, which is third best all-time at the school.

QUARTERBACKS

Tre Jordan of Notre Dame leds the District with 2,771 passing yards through 11 weeks of the 215 season.

Tevon Weber of Salisbury and Travis Stefanik of Nazareth lead the District with 28 TD passes each. Both players seasons are over. Weber finishes his career with 4,267 yards passing and 53 TD passes. His yardage places him in second place all-time at Salisbury while his TD passes are a school record.

Stefanik threw for 237 yards and 4 TD’s in a loss to Wyoming Valley West. Stefanik finished the season throwing for 2,346 yards and 28 TD’s. Both are second-best at Nazareth behind record holder Dan Harding. Stefanik will enter his senior year with 3,296 yards passing and 39 touchdown passes.

Doug Erney of Liberty threw for 230 yards and 3 TD’s in a win over Stroudsburg. Erney has thrown for 1,874 yards and 24 TD passes through 11 games of this season. His 24 TD’s ties the school record held by Dan Persa (2006) and himself (last year).

Devante Cross of Parkland needs 49 yards to reach 2,000 yards passing for the second year in a row. Blake Levengood of Southern Lehigh threw for 243 yards and 2 TD’s in their win over Jim Thorpe. Levengood now has 2,258 yards passing and 26 TD passes for the season.

Ethan Kuczynski of Marian Catholic and Dylan Snyder of Northwestern went over 1,000 yards passing for the season in district semifinal wins.

Bobby Grigas of North Schuylkill finished his career holding every major career passing record at his school. Grigas completed 249 passes for 4,489 yards and 55 TD’s.

Joe Young of Freedom will enter his senior year throwing for 2,467 yards and 18 TD’s.

Jake Jakobson of Stroudsburg fell short of becoming the first Mountaineer to throw for 3,000 yards in a career. Jakobson finished his school record career with 2,933 yards passing and 41 td passes. Tyler Cann of Lehighton needs 70 yards passing to reach 4,000 yards for his career.

Julian Spigner of Bethlehem Catholic finishes his career throwing for 5,538 yards passing and 57 td passes. Spigner’s yardage is third best at the school while his 57 TD’s are three short of the school record. Dan Kendra III is still the record holder in both categories (6,087 yards passing and 60 td passes).

RECEIVERS

Jahan Dotson caught 6 passes for 172 yards and 4 TD’s in week 11. He holds on to his district lead with 65 receptions. Dotson finishes his sophomore season with 1,174 yards receiving and 16 TD receptions. All three totals this year for Dotson break district records for a sophomore. Jeff McGeehin of Central Catholic had 54 catches in 1971. Kevin Gulyas also of Central Catholic had 881 yards in 2009 and Tim Massaquoi of Parkland had 12 TD catches in 1998 as a sophomore. Nick Basenese of Notre Dame now has 62 catches, which ties the school record held by Robbie Harper since 1982.

Ethan Price of Southern Lehigh leads the district in reception yardage with 1,248 yards. Price’s 1,964 career receiving yards puts him in 16th place all-time in the District. He’s 21 yards away from cracking the top 15 (Zach Bogoly of Wilson has 1,985 yards).

Nate Stewart of Bethlehem Catholic finishes his career with 160 career catches for 2,777 yards and 33 td catches. The catches is 3rd best all-time, the yardage is 2nd best all-time and the 33 td’s is 3rd best all-time.
