NTL FOOTBALL: TROY'S WOODWARD HEADLINES BRADFORD COUNTY FOOTBALL ALL-STARS (2023-12-02)

Northern Tier Sports Report
It was quite the season on the gridiron for Bradford County teams with five of the six squads moving on to district play, while Troy made their first district final in 10 years.

Leading the Trojans was quarterback Evan Woodward, who finished the year with 144.9 rating, going 80-for-106 for 1,363 yards with 22 touchdowns against three interceptions. He also had two interceptions and two sacks from the safety position. His play has earned him the Bradford County Football All-stars Player of the Year.


His teammate Jed Feldmeier was a 2-way force in the trenches, with 36 tackles on the season, while anchoring a running game that went for over 3,000 yards on offense, making him the Lineman of the Year.


When injuries hit Brendan Gilliland stepped up, running for a team leading 608 yards and nine touchdowns off 45 carries, earning him the Breakout Player of the Year honors.


Towanda’s Riley Vanderpool had a strong season, running for 1,481 yards and 13 touchdowns off 192 carries, while passing for 895 yards and five touchdowns from the pocket, earning him the Offensive Player of the Year honors.


For the third year in a row a Ward is the Defensive Player of the Year. Hudson Ward finished with 150 tackles on the season, despite missing the Old Shoe, to go with two sacks and seven recovered fumbles. That earns him the Defensive Player of the Year honors.


His teammate, Ben Fitch, took over the starting quarterback reins, and led the Warriors to an eight win season. He threw for 1,279 yards on 71-for-127 with nine touchdowns and four picks, while also leading his team in rushing with 700 yards and nine touchdowns - good enough for the Newcomer of the Year Award.


Down Wyalusing they had a turn around for the ages, finishing with their first winning season since 2010 and bringing back the Bronze Helmet. That makes Rich Rogers and his staff the Coaching Staff of the Year.


- A player can only be an all-star on either offense or defense. However, a player can be on either offense or defense, and make special teams.


The first team offense consists of Troy’s Woodward, Gilliland, and Feldmeier, along with running back Clayton Smith, receivers Lincoln Chimics and Camryn Harwick, and linemen Shaun Wood and Avery Sens.


Fitch makes the first team as a versatility selection, while teammate Rylan Sakers earns an offensive line nod. 


Vanderpool is on the first team as an athlete, while Wyalusing has two selections with running back Aydin Hunsinger and lineman Aaron Carr.


The first team defense features linemen Towanda’s Varrius Farrell, Canton’s Michael Davis and Mason Harold, and Troy’s Eason Teribury.


The linebackers are Ward, Troy’s Jackson Taylor and JB Burbage, and Towanda’s Sawyer Robinson.


The defensive backs are Troy’s Mason Smith, Towanda’s Will Shrawder, Wyalusing’s Dylan Johns, and Canton’s Holden Ward.

The second offensive selections are Athens’ Connor Davidson (quarterback), Cooper Robinson (running back), Sean Peters (wide receiver), and Josh Nittinger (offensive line).


Wyalusing’s Casey God (running back), and Nick Johnson (offensive line), along with Towanda’s Mason Higley (running back), Tahshon Garner (wide receiver), and Timmy Parker (offensive line).

DOUBLE-DUTY ALL-STARS

These are the all-stars who are top of their game on both sides of the ball.


Evan Woodward, Troy - Along with his passing stats he also had 32 carries for 321 yards and eight touchdowns. Due to Troy’s depth he wasn’t always needed to win games, but, as the district final against Southern Columbia showed, when he was called upon he delivered.


Riley Vanderpool, Towanda - Few players had such big impacts on both sides of the ball. Along with his offensive numbers Vanderpool also had 77 tackles and five interceptions on defense, along with being one of the most sure handed tacklers in the district.


Jed Feldmeier, Troy - As stated above he was a 2-way force as a lineman for the Trojans. His production will be tough to replace next season.


Camryn Harwick, Troy - Harwick had 24 tackles and three interceptions on the season on defense as a lock up corner back, while hauling in 29 receptions for 466 yards and five touchdowns as a receiver. He even got into it on special teams, with two touchdown returns on the year, and one of the best punters in the NTL.


Varrius Farrell, Towanda - Farrell anchored an offensive line that ran for 2500 yards on the year, while on defense he was a force, with 46 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and nine sacks - all from the defensive end position. 


Ayden Hunsinger, Wyalusing - Hunsinger was a durable and productive running back, rushing for 1,176 yards and 14 touchdowns. Defensively, he led the Rams in tackles and tackles for loss, anchoring a much improved defensive unit.


Michael Davis, Canton - Despite missing some games with injury Davis finished with 576 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns on 98 carries. Defensively, he had 50 tackles and a team leading seven sacks from the defensive end position, finishing his career as one of the most feared linemen in the league.
