Stewart, Rumery Named to Final D9sports.com Weekly Honor Roll

Press release by www.d9sports.com

SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. – When a high school football team is down 24 points with less than 18 minutes to play, the game is over.

Well, 99 out of 100 times it is over.

But Clarion-Limestone’s Brenden Makray made sure his Lions weren’t out of it down 32-8 with under six minutes to play in the third quarter at Punxsutawney Friday night rallying C-L to a stunning two-touchdown, 48-32, victory by leading the Lions to 30 points in less than a 10-minute span.

That is why Makray is the Week Nine D9Sports.com District 9 Football Player of the Week.

The final Player of the Week for the 2017 season, Makray went 17-for-34 passing for 354 yards, four touchdowns and an interception including throwing the go-ahead 76-yard touchdown to Kyle Kerle with 6:10 to play. In the process, Makray became C-L’s all-time leading passer with 4,446 yards in his career passing Hayden Johnston for the top spot. 

Kerle, who became the first C-L player to ever have 1,000 receiving yards in a season (1,004) joins Makary in being honored by being one of 15 players on the District 9 Honor Roll. Their C-L teammate, Austin Newcomb, is also on the Honor Roll.
