Each week on abc27 Friday Night Football, the sports team picks the two best plays of the week from Friday night football action to go head to head in a voting competition.
This is the full list of Plays of the Week and will be updated throughout the 2021-22 Central PA high school football season.
In Week 1 action, Camp Hill’s quarterback Peyton Shore‘s 93-yard touchdown connection with Christian Doi proved to be the difference maker against Fairfield in the Lions 20-14. But is that play better than the 72-yard bomb thrown from York Catholic QB Levan McFadden to Quinn Brennan in the Fighting Irish’s 24-7 victory over Lancaster Catholic.
In Week 2 action, Carlisle’s Louis Shank to Eli Hargrove shaking off every tackle on his way to the end zone and Carlisle’s big 49-0 win over Hershey. But is that play better than this? In the Cumberland Valley/Central York game, Penn State commit Beau Pribula drops back in his own endzone and finds Parker Hines for a 99-yard touchdown. Central York went on to win 21-3.
In Week 3 action, Mechanicsburg’s sophomore quarterback Jeffrey Lougee takes it 70 yards on the QB keeper into the end zone in the Wildcats 27-17 win over Red Land. But is that play better than this? In the Lebanon/J.P. McCaskey game, Tornado QB Kohen Gates hands it off to Basir Epps, who smokes the defense down the sideline en route to a 60-6 victory over Lebanon.
In Week 4 action, Penn Manor 31 yards away as Eli Warfel scrambles around, Warwick’s defense breaks down, he heaves up a prayer and Clark Wagstaff pulls it down in the end zone; Penn Manor took down Warwick on the last-second Hail Mary 30-28. But is that play better than this? In the Cocoa Bean Bowl between Milton Hershey and Hershey, Spartans John Brown interception to seal the win 25-20 and the trophy.
Week 5 will be updated after Friday Night Football on September 14.
