WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Junior Cole Welham (Lewistown, Pa./Lewistown Area) picked up another honor for his stellar effort against King’s, earning a slot on the Team of the Week, the website announced on Thursday, Sept. 25.

Welham led the defensive line with his standout play on the corner on Saturday, as he got in on six tackles for a loss and three sacks. He was credited with two half-sacks in the game and two more of his 10 tackles in the game were made for no gain for King's, meaning only one of his tackles was made beyond the line of scrimmage. One and a half of his sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss came in the fourth quarter, which kept the Monarchs from seriously threatening a two-touchdown Warrior lead in the 28-13 win.

Welham is the second Warrior to earn Team of the Week honors this season, joiningMike Gentile (Havertown, Pa./Haverford), who had two interceptions against Albright on Sept. 13.

The Warriors get back on the field on Saturday, Sept. 27, when they head to Middle Atlantic Conference foe Wilkes for a 1 p.m. game.
