Lycoming Football - 2019 PLAYER OF THE WEEK Game 7 SR RB KEITH BATKOWSKI

Lycoming Vs FDU-Florham

I can still visualize that unbelievable catch by Keith Batkowski at the five yard line for a touchdown. A 28 yard grab that I swear his feet were on the ground only 23 yards as Keith stretched out high in the air pulling in the pigskin. Batkowski seemed to float for five yards. My camera caught him as he levitated to the goal line for a catch that he was able to hang onto. It was amazing.

Put that catch along with the leading rusher in the and game with 97 yards. Batkowski had a 32 yard scramble and averaged almost 6 yards per carry.

As a pass receiver, he had  30 yards on two catches. His total for the day was 127 all purpose yards. Keith has become a utility player for the Warriors willing to play wherever Coach Clark asks him to play. So with his best game of the season, Keith Bartkowski is the Player of the week for game 7.
