Ricky Ortega, a junior quarterback at Coatesville High School, is one of six finalists in the big-school category (Class 4A to Class 6A) for the ninth annual Mr. PA Football Award, as determined by fan voting.
The winners of the big school and small school honors will be announced on Saturday, Feb. 16 at Harrisburg’s Best Western Premier Hotel, according to Eric F. Epler of the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
“Ortega carried the Red Raiders to the District 1 title and Class 6A semifinals by completing 126 of 199 pass attempts for 2,261 yards and 35 touchdowns,” writes Epler. “Adding 956 yards and 13 rushing TDs, Ortega was picked off just four times.”
Fans can now vote for the finalists. Penn State head coach James Franklin is scheduled to be the keynote speaker for the event.
