Athletes of the Week

State College’s Brandon Clark, Tommy Friberg named CDT Athletes of the Week

State College’s Brandon Clark and Tommy Friberg are the Centre Daily Times Athletes of the Week.

The wideout-quarterback combo helped lead their team to a comeback win Friday over previously unbeaten Delaware Valley in the first round of the PIAA Class 6A playoffs. Clark finished with six catches for 116 yards and two TDs, while Friberg overcame a four-interception first half to go 9 for 9 in the second half for 175 yards and three scores.

The Little Lions won 21-14 after trailing 14-0 early in the third quarter.

“I knew he could come through it through the second half,” Clark said, referring to his quarterback.

Friberg currently leads the county in passing, while Clark leads it in receiving. The two have combined to form the most feared tandem in Centre County this season — and they’ll look to keep it going in the second round of the playoffs, against Pine Richland at 1 p.m. Saturday.
