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 2:


Delgado-Santos made the biggest play when he blocked a Wyoming Area punt that was then returned for a touchdown. He has been a very good special teams player and added two solo tackles on the kickoff team in the Hornets win.

When you start the game off returning the opening kickoff it sets the tone for the game and that’s exactly what Saldano did in Kingtson on Friday. The senior raced 90 yards to put Scranton ahead early and it ended up being a big score as the Knights ended up winning by a touchdown.

ASHTON SMITH, North Pocono
Special teams can be the difference in a game and when you end up winning by one point as the Trojans did on Friday, Smith’s 90-yard kickoff return for a touhchdown came in the 4th quarter after Western Wayne had cut the lead to one score.

Honorable Mention: PK Nick D’Amico, Riverside – 21-yd FG, 3 XP; PK/P Jacob Nielsen, Valley View -33-yd FH, XP, 37yd punt average; KR Daniel Pigga, Dunmore 88-yd kickoff return TD; PK Isaiah Rodriguez, Old Forge 6 for 6 PATs;
