Week 8: Three Things We Learned

Aiden Brosious in Full Arsenal vs. Muhlenberg

The Scouts defense had two huge goal line stands during the fourth quarter of their 17-6 win over the Muhls, which kept them alive in the Section 1 title race.

What went unnoticed was the play of quarterback Aiden Brosious, who didn’t light up the scoreboard in the win but made the plays that gave Conrad Weiser enough points to hold off Muhlenberg.

Three minutes in, Brosious had a 74-yard touchdown run on 3rd-and-19 to give the Scouts an early lead. Later in the game, the quarterback returned a kickoff back 91 yards to counter a Ben Ortiz touchdown that put the Muhls within one.

Brosious finished with 10 carries for 110 yards and a touchdown and completed 3-of-6 passes for 53 yard. Add the kickoff return and Brosious finished with 254 all-purpose yards on the night.

Brosious had one of the season’s top performances and his versatility gives Weiser a shot to unseat Gov. Mifflin for the Section 1 title.

Shane Grapsy: Berks Football League’s best QB?

The Blue Mountain signal caller has been on fire during the Eagles three game winning streak. Grapsy has thrown for 616 yards with seven touchdowns to one interception as Blue Mountain has rallied back into the District 11-AAA playoff picture.

As a result of his hot play, Grapsy has emerged into one of the top quarterbacks in the Berks Football League. He is first in touchdown passes (11), second in yards (1,010) and has only thrown two interceptions this season.

Grapsy has added another dimension to the Blue Mountain offense and added security for running back Will Bornstein, who has 996 yards on the ground.

If the Eagles can continue this continuity on offense, which has averaged 39.3 points over the last three games, Blue Mountain could be playing deep into November.

Yes, Berks Catholic can throw too.

BIC Sports has been waiting for the Saints to have a breakout game throwing the football.  After eight weeks, that came to fruition in a 38-17 win over Fleetwood.

Matt Kase and Patrick Cause combined to complete 10-of-17 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns. Kase was strong throughout, going 7-for-11 with 143 yards and two touchdown passes.

Head coach Rick Keeley has made his two quarterback system work and both players have rewarded him for his decision. Causa and Kase have combined to complete 44-of-81 passes for 906 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions.

The formula adds to two good quarterbacks with Section 2’s top offense and an 8-0 record. The sun continues to shine in Berks Catholic.
