Athletes of the Week 09/27/13: Luke Wortman, Megan Smoulder

September 27, 2013
The Times Observer

If Luke Wortman is still catching his breath, it would be understandable. The Warren Area High School senior chewed up some serious yardage - in the second half - of a Region 5 game Friday at Meadville in which the Dragons won, 33-21. In a 7-7 tie game at the half, Wortman took a D.J. Fehlman pass 70 yards for a touchdown to open the second half. After a Meadville score, Wortman took the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for his second score. Another Meadville score, and Wortman took that ensuing kickoff 89 yards for his third touchdown and a 25-21 lead. That was all in the third quarter, in a six-minute span. If that wasn't enough, just a minute into the fourth quarter, he took a short Fehlman pass 78 yards to put the nail in the coffin. Oh, yeah, he had about 50 more yards on an interception return. For over 400 all-purpose yards and 200 receiving yards, Wortman is the Times Observer Male Athlete of the Week, sponsored by McDonald's.
