Varsity Insider Week 7 Player of the Week —

Mike Apostolopoulos, Iona Prep: On Saturday at Iona Prep, the Gaels dismantled a Fordham Prep team that entered the game at 4-1. Apostolopoulos was a major reason why. He was nearly flawless en route to a 70-20 home win. The senior quarterback went 19 for 22 for 357 yards and six touchdowns. He also rushed for a score and helped the Gaels roll up 49 points by halftime.

The game was the highlight of what’s been a terrific senior season for the second-year starter. He has been one of the area’s most improved players and has thrived in new coach Joe Spagnolo’s offense.

After his big day on Saturday, Apostolopoulos is now 115 for 192 (59.9 percent) for 1,544 yards and 17 touchdowns in just six games.
