SELINSGROVE, Pa. – At Friday’s Quarterback Club Luncheon, Susquehanna sophomore running back Merle Moscarello (Lewisburg, Pa./Lewisburg Area) was named the Wealth Professionals/Gus Weber Player of the Week for his performance last week at Gettysburg.
Against the Bullets, Moscarello led the team in rushing with 176 yards on 32 carries, including a touchdown. As a team, SU out-gained Gettysburg on the ground with 236 yards to the Bullets’ 227.
In three games this season, Moscarello leads the team in rushing
yards (194), yards per carry (5.5) and rushing yards per game
(63.7) with one touchdown to his credit.
Wealth Professionals of Shamokin has partnered with SU as the official sponsor of the Player of the Week Award for the second-straight season. The sponsorship was spearheaded by Ken Shedleski, owner and president of Wealth Professionals. This week Moscarello made a donation to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fund.
The award is also named in honor of late Susquehanna president Gustave Weber, who was SU’s president for more than 18 years who was also an avid Crusader athletics booster who actually served as head football coach for the final two games of the 1965 season.
The Crusaders play their third road game of the season at Gettysburg tomorrow at 1 p.m.
