This time a year ago, Marcus Weathers would have wagered that his view on senior night would have been from under center.
Instead, he enjoyed the last home game of his high school career as one of Marple Newtown’s star receivers. It’s been a strange senior season for Weathers, if only because of his offseason transition to a position he’d never before played.
Weathers factored in to Marple Newtown’s 21-0 win over Strath Haven, which all but certainly assures the Tigers of their first District One Class AAA playoff appearance since 2011.
The Tigers (8-2, 6-2) got a pair of first-quarter scores Abel Hoff, one on the ground and one through the air, before Weathers’ fourth-quarter touchdown put the finishing touches on the visiting Panthers (1-9, 1-7).
