STERLING LIMOUSINE AND TRANSPORTATION
PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

 

Sterling Limo Offensive Players of the Week:
First star:  Brody McAndrew, Neshaminy – The Redskins’ junior quarterback was on top of his game, completing 12-of-17 passes for 168 yards and three touchdowns in Neshaminy’s 35-7 win over Pennsbury in a battle for a share of the SOL National title. McAndrew’s 36-yard touchdown pass to Cory Joyce gave the Redskins a lead they would not lose and set the tone for the game.
Coach Steve Wilmot says:  “Brody McAndrew brings a lot of leadership and ability to our football team. Our offense is built around him, and he does a great job of executing it. He probably had his best game of the year against Pennsbury, throwing for three touchdowns and continuing to execute our offense well. I’m looking forward to watching him perform in the playoffs.”

 

Second star: Hatboro-Horsham Offensive Line (Jake Schalki, Mark Custer, Nick Fisicaro, Jake Rickard, Jack Connell, Nahji Logan) –The Hatters’ offensive line dominated the Colonials up front with over 340 yards of total offense in Hatboro-Horsham’s 56-35 win over Plymouth Whitemarsh. Five different ball carriers scored on a night that saw the Hatters rush for over 270 yards and score six rushing touchdowns while the offensive line did the grunt work in the trenches.

 

Third star: Harry S Truman’s running back core (James Koliyah, Enzo Poulson, Javeer Peterson, Dylan Snelling) – The Tigers’ running back core collectively was responsible for scoring 42 points in Harry S Truman’s 42-3 win over Bensalem that clinched a share of the SOL National title. All year long the quartet along with Dede Winton, Terrence Rodgers and Gabe Giipli have been key to the Tigers’ offense.

 

Sterling Limo Defensive Players of the Week
First star: Oleh Manzyk, Neshaminy – The senior linebacker was the catalyst in yet another standout defensive effort in Neshaminy’s 35-7 win over Pennsbury in a battle for a share of the SOL National title, finishing with seven tackles, including one for a loss. He had two hurries, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery. The Redskins’ defense has a pair of shutouts and has allowed just three touchdowns in its last five games – all wins. Manzyk and teammate Cory Joyce are the first players in Neshaminy history to appear in four wins over Pennsbury in a rivalry that began in 1930.
Coach Steve Wilmot says:  “Oleh Manzyk is the heart and soul of our football team. He plays with drive and determination that all of the players try to emulate. He is a true student of the game and always seems to be at the right place at the right time. Against Pennsbury, he had some key tackles at key times of the game to stop their drives. He also had a key fumble recovery at the Pennsbury eight-yard line that resulted in a 92-yard touchdown drive.”

 

Second star: David Moyer, Central Bucks East – The junior linebacker had 15 tackles to lead the defense in Central Bucks East’s 24-20 win over Pennridge in a contest that vaulted the Rams into the District 1 Tournament.

 

Third star:  James Koliyah, Harry S Truman – The senior defensive lineman had 13 tackles, a sack and tackle for a loss in Harry S Truman’s 42-3 win over Bensalem that clinched a share of the SOL National title. Koliyah, who can play anywhere on the field, has been a key in the Tigers’ 9-1 regular season.
