Kyler Lardieri scored two touchdowns against the Rockets and had more than 150 all-purpose yards to help jumpstart the Blue Devils.

Senior Kyler Larderi, is athlete of the week!

As any football fan knows, a kick and punt return can change the whole game’s momentum. Lardieri changed last week’s game against Southern Huntingdon when he returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown.

Larderi has an average of 19 yards per returns this season. He has also had 17 solo tackles, and 2 assisted tackles this season. I guess you could say Larderi is unstoppable so far.

Larderi has a total of 246 rushing yards for an average 9.5 each carry and 426 receiving yards averaging to 16 each catch, and a total of 7 touchdowns.

Blueprint: How do you prepare for games? The opponent?

Larderi: We watch films on the teams we play and study their plays.

Larderi: I’m happy with what we have done so far for this year but also disappointed with some losses.

Blueprint: How important is the big-play ability you bring to the team?
