2020 Favorite Sports Moments - #6 Elkers shine in Varischetti Game

Sportswriter Bob Parana's #6 top sports moment of 2020 - Seven Elkers excelled in the Varischetti All-Star Football game for the winning AML squad on Aug. 7. Head coach Mark Heindl served as an assistant for head coach Tony Gerg of Elk County Catholic.
Front l-r, Greg Simon, Jake Wickett, Heindl, and Matt Dush. Back l-r, Austin Green, Hayden Haupright, Paul Gresco, and Robert Briggs. The Elkers hugely impacted the win which spawned the blaring of the famous Ridgway siren and shouts of “an Elkers first down!" Gresco finished the game seven-of-17 for 101 yards and threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to Green, who was named the AML Offensive MVP with three catches for 76 yards, and a 12-yarder to Dush who finished the game with three catches for 18 yards. Briggs, Simon, Haupright, Wickett, and Green all excelled on the AML defense which held the KSAC to 125 yards of total offense. Wickett sparked the offense with timely runs for 19 yards and a catch of three yards. Simon and Briggs did a more than a steady job on the offensive line as did Haupright who only played defense in 2019.
