Camire clos­ing in on 1,000

The Morning Call - - VARSITY - — Stephen Miller

One three-year start­ing quar­ter­back be­came the EPC South’s first 1,000yard passer of 2019 last week. Two other quar­ter­backs are within 80 yards of that mile­stone.

Here’s a look at the lat­est EPC South in­di­vid­ual lead­ers, in­clud­ing spot­lights on some of the top per­form­ers from Week 6.

Rush­ing lead­ers

Em­maus ju­nior Bran­don Camire added an ex­plo­sive play to his 2019 high­light reel when he ripped off a 91-yard touch­down run in the first quar­ter of Fri­day’s 31-28 win over Lib­erty. He fin­ished with 26 car­ries for 185 yards and two touch­downs, putting him on the brink of be­com­ing the di­vi­sion’s sec­ond 1,000-yard rusher.

Camire needs 6 yards Fri­day against Cen­tral Catholic to reach 1,000. He has 17 rush­ing touch­downs in six games.

Pass­ing lead­ers

Free­dom quar­ter­back Jared Jenk­ins at­tempted only 10 passes Fri­day against Po­cono Moun­tain West but still be­came the EPC South’s first 1,000-yard passer. He com­pleted seven of his throws for 158 yards and four touch­downs in a 42-8 win that moved the Pa­tri­ots to 5-1.

Jenk­ins will try to add to his to­tals Fri­day against one of the di­vi­sion’s top de­fenses. Free­dom vis­its Eas­ton, which has lim­ited foes to 137.5 pass­ing yards per game and a 50.7 com­ple­tion per­cent­age dur­ing its 6-0 start.

Re­ceiv­ing lead­ers

Cen­tral Catholic ju­nior Ge­orge Hlavac pro­duced his big­gest game of 2019 to join the EPC South re­ceiv­ing lead­ers. He snagged nine passes for 71 yards, in­clud­ing a 16-yard touch­down, as the Vik­ings fell 44-14 to Eas­ton in a game that started Satur­day night and ended Sun­day af­ter­noon be­cause of thun­der­storms.

Hlavac (21 catches) and Jack McGorry (24 catches) make Cen­tral Catholic one of four EPC South teams with a pair of 20-catch re­ceivers. White­hall, Nazareth and Eas­ton are the oth­ers.

Scor­ing lead­ers

Beth­le­hem Catholic se­nior Tavion Banks ran for three touch­downs Satur­day af­ter­noon against White­hall, giv­ing him 14 rush­ing TDs this sea­son. He also pushed his ca­reer mark to 60 to­tal touch­downs, fourth-most in school his­tory.

Banks needs seven scores to es­tab­lish a Beth­le­hem Catholic ca­reer record. Ed­die Si­pio (1998-2001) holds the mark of 66 touch­downs.

APRIL GAMIZ/THE MORNING CALL

After scor­ing three touch­downs against White­hall on Satur­day af­ter­noon, Beth­le­hem Catholic’s Tavion Banks now has 60 dur­ing his high school ca­reer.
