With the starting quarterback and two starting wide receivers out, someone had to step up and be the difference for Union County last night in a huge region game at Banks County.
That person proved to be senior John Mancuso, who was also celebrating his 18th birthday.
While the defensive back played with his normal fire and energy, making plays all over the field for a defense that held the home team to just seven points, Mancuso made a big impact on offense for the first time this season.
Mancuso caught two touchdown passes on the night, one for 47 yards and one for 3 yards. Those two scores were the only points scored by the Panthers on Friday, but they proved to be just enough for Union County to get the 14-7 win.
For his efforts on both sides of the ball, John Mancuso is the TeamFYNSports Writer’s Player of the Week!
