WARREN, Pa. – Down 14 points with 7 ½ minutes to play, things looked bleak for Cameron County.
But Maddox Baughman helped rally the Red Raiders to a 30-28 win over visiting Bucktail by throwing a touchdown pass and then scoring a touchdown on a 1-yard run with 1:17 to play.
That is a large reason Baughman is the Week Six Jim Kelly District 9 Football Player of the Week powered by the Allegheny Grille in Foxburg.
He finished the game 11 of 19 for 172 yards passing with three touchdowns, including a 6-yard scoring pass to Malakai Zucal with 6:38 to play that cut a 28-14 deficit to 28-22 (Cameron actually trailed by as many as 16, 22-6, in the second half).
Baughman also ran eight times for 81 yards and a touchdown.
Fifteen players join Baughman on the District 9 honor roll
