Ath­lete of the Week Shawn Pep­per, Penns­bury Football

The Advance of Bucks County - - SPORTS - Com­piled by Vince Par­avec­chia

So far, Shawn Pep­per has lived up to his po­ten­tial to be a Division I col­lege re­cruit in the com­ing months. The 6-3, 215-pound se­nior run­ning back and line­backer has been a go-to offensive threat thanks to his rush­ing, re­ceiv­ing and kick re­turn­ing abil­i­ties, and all three were on dis­play at Down­ing­town East Sep. 14. There, he rushed for over 60 yards, caught for nearly 90 and ran back kick­offs for 88 and 90 yards, both of which went for cal­con touch­downs.

His ef­forts kept Penns­bury in the game, but weren’t enough to over­come East in a 42-28 set­back. While the cal­cons are 1-2, Pep­per has been strong in both losses, as he gained 92 yards and a score on the ground in a sea­son-open­ing loss to Eas­ton. He also scored once and ran for 98 yards in a 34-23 win over crank­ford.
