Lycoming Football - 2019 Player of the Week Vs Lebanon Valley - Sr LB Sam Pawlikowski

Lycoming Vs Lebanon Valley

Week after week, Sr LB Sam Pawlikowski has been close to our Player of the Week honors. I remember a couple of times feeling a little guilty not picking him, but there were good reasons for me to wait another week. I had no doubt that he would win our award before seasons end. And this week he was the clear leader of the defense that shut down a good Lebanon Valley team. Sam led all tacklers with 8 including one for a loss. He had one breakup and assisted in causing a fumble. But the biggest thing that males Pawlikowski one of the best linebackers for the Warriors is his 2019 year-to-date statics. They are incredible. Take a look!

Sam, through nine games leads all defensive players by a wide margin in total tackles. He has 66 tackles, 24 more than the second closest player which is Fr LB Austin Rowley. Week after week Sam does one thing well and that is consistent high performance for the Wiser defensive machine. And Sam is so respected by his fellow players as a leader. Without revealing too much personal information, I have noticed that he always gets mentally set before each game wanting to play his best. And that best is not for his glory if you know what I mean.

He is a humble player for sure and we are so lucky to have had him in the Wiser clan. Nice going Sam on this little highlight of your senior year. Good luck at Stevenson this coming weekend. All the best in your future endeavors from us at
