D9Sports.com Names High School Football Player of the Week

CLARION, Pa. (D9Sports.com) – Scoring five touchdowns in any game is pretty special, doing so in a game that clinched a division title for your team takes it up another level.

That’s one of the reasons Port Allegany senior Dylan Baumgarner is the D9Sports.com District 9 Player of the Week for Week Eight of the 2015 season.

Baumgarner caught 11 passes for 202 yards and four touchdowns in the Gators 36-18 win over Smethport Friday night that clinched the AML North title for Port Allegany and he added a rushing touchdown while carrying the ball four times for 14 yards. He also played an outstanding game on defense making eight tackles and in addition handled the punting duties for the Gators.

Baumgarner’s performance may have been the best in District 9 this week, but it was not the only one. In fact, 32 different players were considered for the 16 spots on the Player of the Week/Honor Roll making it probably the biggest grouping of players to be considered this season.

Joining Baumgarner in being honored on the Honor Roll is teammate Tre Garzel, who threw the four touchdown passes to him, as well as 14 additional players.
