So much for “Tebowing.” Teams in District 9′s Allegheny Mountain League have been finding themselves getting “Bodamered.”
Matt Bodamer is a senior quarterback for Port Allegany High School, a Class A program in McKean County. He’s a four-year varsity starter at quarterback for the Gators and has led the orange and black to consecutive D9 A championship games, winning one. Beyond the winning, though, Bodamer is lighting up stat sheets and scoreboards all across District 9.
SHIPPENVILLE – For the second week in a row and the third time in four weeks this season, Port Allegany quarterback Matt Bodamer is the RRR Roadhouse D9Sports.com District 9 Player of the Week.
Bodamer earns the Week Four award after another mind-blowing game in Port Allegany’s 70-8 win at Coudersport Friday night. The senior, who became just the sixth player in Pennsylvania history to throw for 8,000 career yards during the game, was 28 of 35 passing for 413 yards and seven touchdowns while adding 25 yards rushing on six carries despite playing just two series into the second half. It marked the second straight week Bodamer passed for seven touchdowns making him the only player in District 9 history to have seven or more touchdowns more than once in a career. The seven scores ties for second all-time in District 9 history.
