Delaware Valley’s Troy Tepedino Decleats Abington Heights Defender (Video)

Delaware Valley tight end Troy Tepedino absolutely decleats this Abington Heights player in his team’s 28-6 victory on Friday night.

An extended part of the Elite Sports NY family, Troy Tepedino, put up a highlight reel play this past Friday night.

We’re talking high school football right now. Better yet, we’re discussing high school football in the state of Pennslyvania. 

The legends who’ve learned the game while growing up in the great state of PA are endless. Obviously, quarterbacks have their own section: Joe Namath, Jim Kelly, Dan Marino, Johnny Unitas, George Blanda, and Joe Montana, to name a few.

Tepedino, however, performed his best Mike Ditka impersonation. The hall of fame coach and tight end who soiled his oats out of Carnegie, PA, was dubbed Iron Mike for a very solid reason.

Squaring off against Abington Heights, Delaware Valley improved its record to 8-2 with the impressive 28-6 victory. On one particular play, Tepedino reminded Abington who was in control of the game.

Head coach Keith Olsommer dialed up a waggle. Senior quarterback Matthew Cavallaro — who holds the school for touchdown passes — carried out a play-fake and connected with Junior tight end Brendan Heaney. After running his 5-yard dig, Tepedino peeled back on an unsuspecting Abington defender and leveled him into next Tuesday (video above).

Next up for DV will be the big show. They’ll take on Scranton in the 6A playoffs at Warrior Stadium this Friday night, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. ET.
