CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK! (Week 10)

Everyone around here knows United’s Kyle Silk is a pretty good football player. Hunter Cameron is pretty good, too. Cameron, a sophomore running back, leads the area in rushing with 1,493 yards.

He took over the rushing lead from Silk on Friday, running for 347 yards on 38 carries in a 38-14 romp over Conemaugh Township in a Heritage Conference-WestPAC crossover game. It was the fourth straight victory for a team that was once 2-4. Cameron and Silk rank first and second, respectively, in the area in rushing. They have combined for more than 2,700 yards and have scored 36 of their team’s 40 touchdowns. The 6-4 Lions open the District 6 Class 1A playoffs at home Friday against Purchase Line.
