Local high school graduates Harvie Tuck IV and Zach Boedicker were recently named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Western Division Co-Offensive Player of the Week.

Tuck, a freshman tailback at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), is a graduate of St. Vincent-St. Mary.

Boedicker, a junior quarterback at Gannon University, is a graduate of Nordonia.

Tuck rushed for 218 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries in a 45-0 victory over Lock Haven. Tuck had six runs of 10 or more yards including a long of 38 that set up another second quarter score.

The 218 yards are the most by an IUP freshman, the 10th-highest mark in school history and the most by a running back in the PSAC this season.

Boedicker led Gannon to a 51-48 victory over Slippery Rock by accounting for 355 total yards offensively. He completed 11-of-15 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries.

The passing yards, passing touchdowns and total offensive yards are each career-highs for Boedicker.

Trailing 27-16, Boedicker gave Gannon rushed for a 61-yard touchdown run with 1:22 left in the second quarter. He then threw two touchdown passes in the first 2:57 of the third quarter, giving the Golden Knights a 37-27 lead.
