Falvo earned Defensive Lineman of the Week after Steinert’s loss to Hopewell Valley. The senior had 10 tackles and two sacks. “He put constant pressure on the quarterback all game,” coach Dan Caruso said. He is my best linemen and one of the best in the county.”

Oge kicked a game-winning field goal in overtime to beat Moorestown. The senior was also 3-for-3 in PATs, got two touchbacks on four kickoffs and hit four punts for a 52.5 average.

Bellan, a senior quarterback, was 18-for-23 for 404 yards and six touchdowns in a win over Wyoming Seminary.

Cooper, a first-year junior cornerback, recorded four total tackles and sealed the Ravens first win since October of 2016 with his first career interception at the 2-yard line with under two minutes remaining.
