Trevor Porche feeds on repitition. He wants the ball. He’s a workhorse.
As the game goes on, Porche gets stronger. And his hard running has a weakening effect on opposing defenses.
This week, Porche carried the ball 44 times for the Annville-Cleona football team, and the Little Dutchmen posted a pair of impressive victories. Those two facts aren’t coincidences.
On Friday at home, Porche toted the rock 23 times for 143 yards during a critical 45-35 triumph over Donegal. On Monday during a driving rain storm, the senior running back had rushed 21 times for 176 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-0 blanking of Pequea Valley.
For the season, Porche has a total of 175 rushing attempts for 1,026 yards – an impressive average of 5.9 yards per carry – and 11 touchowns. But more importantly, this week’s two wins pushed Annville-Cleona to 5-3 overall and 5-2 in Section Three of the Lancaster-Lebanon League.
If Porche and the Little Dutchmen keep it going, they could be in line for another District Three Class AAA playoff appearance. At the end of the week, Annville-Cleona was listed fourth in the Class AA power rankings.
