Curwensville’s Stewart is the D9sports.com Player of the Week; Clearfield’s Rumery Named to the Honor Roll

Press release by www.d9sports.com

CLARION, Pa. – For three years, Curwensville’s Nick Stewart has been the model of consistency at running back, and that didn’t change Friday night when he ran for 320 yards and five touchdowns while becoming just the sixth rusher in D9 history to top 4,000 career yards. 

With that performance, Stewart is the D9Sports.com District 9 Football Player of the Week for Week 1 of the 2016 season with a special mention to Stewart’s offensive line which was opening gapping holes for the junior running back in a 41-21 Golden Tide win over visiting Smethport. 

Stewart now has 4,047 career yards, which ranks sixth in D9 history and is only 402 yards behind Kyle Cathcart for fifth. 

Joining Stewart in being honored on the Week 1 Honor Roll are 15 additional players.. 

The Player of the Week and Honor Roll honors will continue through the conclusion of the regular season.
