Colton Litzelman

North-Penn Mansfield Panthers

Football

Junior football player Colton Litzelman had big shoes to fill for this Panthers team, after losing a great quarterback from last season, but has proven so far to be able to live up to those expectations. Against Athens Colton had a great game, throwing for almost 200 yards and adding three touchdowns through the air on Friday. He completed 19 passes to seven different receivers giving a healthy spread of the ball to all of the players.

Colton led the charge, and helped the Panthers in scoring 37 points, and lead a balanced offensive attack that amassed nearly 400 yards. He helped lead the Panthers to a huge first win against Athens on the road and will look to continue to throw the ball effectively when the team travels to Bloomsburg for a non-conference match-up this Friday.
