CD Ram nabs all-state football honor

Ethan Van Buskirk, senior Central Dauphin kicker, recently was named to the Pennsylvania Football News Class 6A All-State Team. He was the only Mid Penn Conference player to be named to the first-team offense.

Plus, he is a 2017 Mini Max High School Award winner and was among those honored by the Maxwell Football Club at an awards dinner in Drexel Hill, Pa.

Topping off his haul of hardware, Van Buskirk was selected in November to the Mid Penn Commonwealth Division first team football all-stars.

The 2017 season was a productive one for Van Buskirk with 72 points. He hit on 36 or 37 extra points (PAT) and 12 of 17 field goal attempts, with the longest boot being a 49 yarder in the season’s opening game against Susquehanna Township.

Van Buskirk also was the team’s punter, averaging 30 yards on 28 punts.
