LOWER POTTSGROVE — Tory Hudgins put together a highlight reel for college recruiters Friday night.
Pottsgrove head coach Rick Pennypacker will seal it for future use, while Perkiomen Valley head coach Scott Reed would like to steal it ... in hopes neither Hudgins nor the show he put on ever happened in the two teams’ showdown.
The 6-foot, 175-pound senior quarterback ran 21 times for 214 yards and three touchdowns to guide the host Falcons to a come-from-behind 42-28 win over Perkiomen Valley that clinched at least a tie for the Pioneer Athletic Conference title and, just as important, the No. 1 seed in the upcoming District 1-Class AAA playoffs.
While averaging over 10 yards a carry, going over the 1,000-yard mark for the season, and finding the end zone three times is indeed impressive, it all paled in comparison to his last score — a 51-yarder in which he appeared to be on his way down not once but twice, only to see him outrace the Vikings’ final two defenders to put the Falcons in front 35-28 with 1:24 remaining.
