WARREN, Pa. – Running behind a big, physical offensive line, Oil City’s Ethen Knox continues to put up eye-popping numbers.
He did so again in a victory against Route 8 rival Franklin, rushing for 425 yards and five touchdowns – his third straight game of 400 yards, which is believed to be the first time that feat has ever been accomplished in Pennsylvania.
As a result, Knox is the Week 4 YDL Sports Network D9and10Sports.com District 10 Jim Kelly Football Player of the Week powered by the Allegheny Grille in Foxburg – the third straight week he has received the award.
Knox has now rushed for 1,575 yards and 21 touchdowns and also has a receiving touchdown and three interceptions on defense.
His teammate, Brayden McFetridge, had a monster game on defense with eight tackles for loss and five sacks, joining him on the weekly honor roll, which also includes a pair of kickers. Warren’s Gavin Rex booted a game-winning 23-yard field goal as time expired in a 10-7 win over Conneaut, while Cathedral Prep’s Cole Constable hit a school-record 51-yarder, as well as a 47-yarder.
