KENYON COLLEGE'S SAM MCQUISTON
When Phoenixville graduate Sam McQuiston headed out to Ohio to line up for Kenyon College, he didn't think he would go nearly three full seasons without a win ... but he did.
Until last Saturday, when the junior defensive back came up with one tackle and a big interception to help the Lords end a 24-game losing streak with a 31-14 rout of state rival Earlham. It was the Lords' first win since defeating Oberlin, 21-9, back on Oct. 17, 2009.
HONORABLE MENTION: Gotta give some props to younger brother Alec McQuiston, a freshman at Kenyon, who had five tackles in the win over Earlham. ... Also honorable mention, Shippensburg quarterback Zach Zulli (Perkiomen Valley) - last week's Player of the Week - was at it again by completing 22 of 41 passes for 348 yards and four touchdowns, catching one pass for four yards and a touchdown, and running seven times for 25 more yards in the Red Raiders' 55-35 shootout with Slippery Rock. It's the first time in eight years Shippensburg has opened a season 2-0.
