FALL VOTE #9 OF 2018
Pack continues to put up
incredible numbers since
taking over at quarterback. In
Piketon’s first win of the
season Friday over ZT, Pack
threw for 246 yards and ran for
117. Pack had a hand in five
touchdowns including the
game-winner in the game’s
final seconds.
The Huntington senior was 34/35
serving with a school-record 12
aces against Portsmouth West.  
Her serving produced 31 points.
Chance Smith, Unioto
In the absence of
Jamarcus Carroll, Smith has
stepped to the front as the leader
for the Tanks. Smith ran 21 times
for 266 yards and three
touchdowns. His performance
lifted Unioto to a come-from-
behind victory against Huntington.
He also had an interception on
defense. Smith’s recent play has
helped Unioto enter Week 10 just
a win away from clinching a
playoff spot.

Preston Sykes, Adena
The sophomore signal
caller completed 10-of-12 passes
for 144 yards. He also ran 20
times for 166 yards and four
touchdowns. On the defensive
side of the ball, Sykes had an
interception. The Warriors beat
SE 33-30 to improve to 8-1.

Tucker Markko, Unioto (Cross
A week after winning
the SVC, Markko finished second
in the District Meet at Rio Grande
as Unioto took the team title to

Lane Mettler, Paint Valley
The junior back
seems to be making a weekly
habit of finding the end zone
multiple times. In Week 9, Mettler
scored three times on offense and
had four tackles for a loss on
defense as PV defeated WF 34-
14 to improve to 9-0.

Lane Ruby, Southeastern
The junior QB was
unreal in Friday’s Week 9
performance against Adena. Ruby
ran 18 times for291 yards and
four TDs. Despite the loss, the
Panthers will control their own
playoff destiny in Week 10.
