Dukes of the Game: Anthony and The D

Alex AnthonyDuke of the Game on Offense: Alex Anthony

Junior Wide Receiver Alex Anthony is this week’s Duke of the Game on Offense. Big-time players play their best in big-time games. Anthony has been a consistent top offensive contributor all year long, but when the stakes were raised as they were against Germantown, Anthony was unstoppable.

Alex collected 13 receptions for 165 yards and 2 TDs, both coming at critical moments in the game, leading the Blue Dukes to their thrilling comeback win at Germantown.

Duke of the Game on Defense: The Entire “D”

Blue Dukes DThe entire Blue Dukes Defense will once again share the honor of the Defensive Player of the Game. Let’s start with the coaches, who made the halftime adjustments, including flipping Case Fleck and Michael Kirkendoll to better stop the run. Fleck had an interception and fumble recovery, and Kirkendoll had multiple tackles.

Mature performances by sophomores Tommy Brunner, Patrick Nau, and Mark Moraski, along with the senior leadership Andy Oates (multiple tackles) and David Thompson (Awesome Pick 6!).  Add to that Juniors Brady Weas, Thomas Deakin, Jordan Riley and Jacob Ross all providing solid line play, and linebacker Carson Kimple (diving block of a potential TD pass), and you get what all coaches crave: a true team performance!  The Blue Dukes slowed the Warhawks running game, holding their offense to a season low 211 total yards.
