Press release by www.d9sports.com

CLARION’S CORBETT; REDBANK VALLEY’S DOUGHERTY NAMED D9SPORTS.COM WEEK NINE CO-FOOTBALL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

16 D9 athletes named to honor roll

CLARION, Pa. – Clarion’s Ian Corbett and Redbank Valley’s Jake Dougherty combined for over 1,000 yards of total offense in Clarion’s 58-46 KSAC Small School Division-clinching win at Redbank Valley Friday night, and the duo’s performances are the reason they are the D9Sports.com District 9 Football Co-Players of the Week for Week Nine of the 2014 season.

Dougherty broke the Pennsylvania and District-9 passing record of 594 yards set in 2009 by Brockway’s Derek Buganza by throwing for 614 yards and seven touchdowns on 40 of 69 passing in the losing effort. He also made seven tackles on defense for the Bulldogs.

But Dougherty’s efforts weren’t enough thanks in large part to the performance of Corbett.

The Bobcat senior running back ran for 397 yards, the second most in a game in District 9 history, on 31 carries while scoring six times on the ground and adding a 76-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to account for seven of Clarion’s touchdowns.

Joining Corbett and Dougherty in being honored are 16 players on the Week Nine District 9 Honor Roll including Dougherty’s teammate Wyatt Hetrick who tied the District 9 record with 18 catches for 242 yards, the second most in D9 history, and a touchdown.

The Player of the Week and Honor Roll will run through Week 10 of the 2014 high school football season and will be released at the conclusion of the week’s games either Sunday or Monday.
