Every week, we will highlight some of the best special teams performances from the WVC and LFC presented by Figliomeni Pharmacy Care. Here is Week 1:


Chopyak picked up where he left off last season with kicking a 27-yard field goal and 5 for 5 on extra points. The Mountaineers have had strong special teams over the years and with the return of Chopyak, the kicking game is in good hands.

One thing West Scranton lacked last year was playmakers but with the return of Laybourne-Boddie to lineup after missing last season, he gave the Invaders a spark in their win over Riverside. He returned a punt 35 yards for the first touchdown of the game that set the tone for West.

J.J. ROSA, Susquehanna
The Sabers used defense and special teams to propel them to a win over Holy Redeemer. Rosa opened up the scoring with a 66-yard punt return for a touchdown to give Susuquehanna a lead they wouldn’t relinquish

Honorable Mention: PK Sean Owens, Western Wayne – 59-yd punt return TD; PK Liam Burke, Wyoming Area – 6 for 6 XP; PK Keegan Hughes, Scranton 20 yard field goal.
