CHILLICOTHE – After two straight weeks where Player of the Week honors were handed out to Zane Trace athletes, Unioto’s Clay Edler put a stop to that with his superb Week 9 performance.
In a 28-22 win over Piketon, the Tanks’ quarterback completed 17-of-28 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns. He also carried the ball 16 times for 145 yards, scoring twice more.
In total, Edler was somehow accountable for all four of Unioto’s scores. The Player of the Week honor is Edler’s second of 2015.
Following Edler in the voting was Chillicothe’s Malachi Reissing, who recorded 13 tackles and two sacks in a 47-9 win over Washington Court House. Reissing received 106 votes or 25.6 percent.
Also receiving votes was Paint Valley’s Anthony McFadden (59), Zane Trace’s Austin Harris (53) and Westfall’s Matt Jude (42).
Next week’s Player of the Week poll will be posted Monday morning on ChillicotheGazette.com. Voting will open at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
