D9Sports.com: Rovers Look to Stay Unbeaten

A look at this week’s District 9 High School Football matchups brought to you by D9Sports.com.

Otto-Eldred (0-3) at Brockway (3-0)

The Rovers gave up their first touchdown and points in last week’s win. Meanwhile, they’re churning out points and yards on a very balanced approach — 579 yards passing, 554 yards rushing.

Quarterbacks Zach Foradori, Braden Martini and Hunter Miller have combined to complete 39 of 55 passes (71 percent) for six touchdowns and just one interception. Anthony Benson has rushed for 170 yards while catching 11 passes for 171 yards. Receiver Anthony Isabella has 10 receptions for 215 yards.

Remarkably, the Terrors are just about a one-man show as far as handling the ball goes as sophomore Seth Drummond — 245 yards rushing, 8 catches for 148 yards receiving — has accounted for 514 of the team’s 622 yards from scrimmage.

Brookville (1-2) at Redbank Valley (3-0)

It’s the 68th meeting between Route 28 rivals as the unbeaten Bulldogs try to extend their perfect season so far against a Raiders squad that was blasted at Punxsutawney last week.

The Bulldogs’ offense has gotten off to a strong start, led by senior quarterback Jake Dougherty. He’s thrown for 673 yards yards and 10 touchdowns. Dougherty also went over 4,000 career yards and stands 14th on the all-time district leaderboard at 4,215 yards.

Connor Shoemaker (15 catches, 123 yards) and Wyatt Hetrick (13-237) are the leading receivers for the Bulldogs.

Raiders quarterback Bobby McGranor has passed for 436 yards with his top receiver being Brandon Bietz (9 catches, 145 yards).

The Bulldogs lead the series against the Raiders, 31-30-6.
