BOYERTOWN — Monroe Hampton came up with football’s version of the Ironman on Friday night. He didn’t swim, nor bike anywhere.
But did the Pottstown senior ever run ... and run, and run, and run.
Hampton carried 29 times for 306 yards and three touchdowns, caught four passes for 72 yards, recovered a fumble, came up with an interception, and was in on seven tackles... whew.
All that, along with quarterback Sage Reinhart’s 264 yards and three touchdowns passing, was just enough for the Trojans to outlast Boyertown, 51-47, in one of the most exciting and record-breaking Pioneer Athletic Conference games since the league kicked off its first season back in 1986.
