THE VALLEY Only a freshman, Emmett Wood led Tiogas potent ground game, easily topping the 1,000-yard plateau to earn the Valley Sports Report 2018 Male Newcomer of the Fall.
Wood, using a blend of speed, power and instincts, led the Tigers with 1,416 yards and 15 TDs, averaging 8.1 yards per carry. His freshman yardage ranks second only to Jesse Manuel, who had 1.535 yards and 22 TDs, in the Tioga record books.
Wood, who also returned kickoffs for the Tigers, was among the team leaders in tackles and interceptions.
The remainder of the Super 7 Male Newcomers of the Fall are:
