PLAYER OF THE WEEK! (Week 1)
Demetri Lieb. Penns Manor. #6
6-foot, 160 pounds. Sophomore. Running back/defensive back. Demetri Lieb sure does know how to make a debut. Lieb, a sophomore at Penns Manor, scored three touchdowns and intercepted three passes in the Comets’ season-opening 52-14 romp over Blairsville on Friday. Though he didn’t touch the ball a lot as a running back, Lieb made the most of his opportunities, rushing for 84 yards on only eight carries and scoring touchdowns on runs covering 14, 15 and 27 yards. Defensively, Lieb came up with the three big interceptions, including one in the end zone that thwarted a Blairsville drive.
KENWOOD — It seemed like old times: Saturday night football at Penns Manor and Saltsburg winning playoff games.
