WARREN, Pa. – As the regular season winds down, Grove City is looking more and more like a team that can defend it’s Class 3A title, with Hunter Hohman one of the big reasons why.
In a 38-22 win over Sharpsville, Hohman had a superb all-around effort, going 14-of-16 for 232 yards and three touchdowns, carried 17 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns, and that is why he is the Week 8 2022 YDL Sports Network D9and10Sports.com District 10 Player of the Week powered by the Allegheny Grille in Foxburg.
Homan edged out Oil City’s Ethen Knox, who had another fantastic week rushing for over 400 yards again (444 on 54 carries) while scoring four touchdowns. It was Knox’s sixth 400-yard game of the season, which is believed to be a modern-day national record for 400-yard games in a season.
Also worth mentioning is Nathan Greer who hauled in two of Hohman’s touchdown receptions as the Eagles built a 31-7 lead, while Anthony Nemec had 138 yards rushing as Grove City won for the fourth time in its last five games.
There were a number of additional players who had fantastic games in helping lead their teams to wins in Week 8, including Mercer’s Nate Haines, who scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 15-yard run with 4:32 to play in the Mustangs’ 15-13 win over Lakeview and sealed the win with his late interception.
Elsewhere, Eisenhower’s Benji Bauer rushed for 211 yards and a touchdown and Mikey Beaver had 10 tackles, five of which went for loss in a 31-25 win at Northwestern that upped the Knights’ record to 8-0, the only unbeaten team in District 10.
They are joined on the Honor Roll by Cathedral Prep’s Dajour Hollingsworth (19 carries, 200 yards, 3 TDs), Reynolds’ Jalen Wagner (10 carries, 291 yards, 4 TDs), Farrell’s Kylon Wilson (125 yards rushing, 3 TDs; 70-yard punt return for TD), Slippery Rock’s William Mokel (14-of-18, 272 yards, 5 TDs) and John Sabo (7 receptions, 122 yards, 3 TDs; 7 tackles on defense), Seneca’s Ryan Miller (22 carries, 407 yards, 5 TDs), Meadville’s Khalon Simmons (291 yards rushing, 3 TDs, passing TD), Warren’s Tommy Nyquist (14 carries, 204 yards, 3 TDs; 1 reception, 80 yards, TD) and Cayden Wright (4 receptions, 138 yards, 2 TDs), Maplewood’s Ben Gilberto (29 carries, 379 yards, 3 TDs).
