Often looked at as his team’s fourth or even fifth scoring option, Old Forge forward Tim McGrath has stepped up the past two weeks to give the Blue Devils a much-needed threat on the offensive end.
For his efforts, Tim has been named The Sunday Dispatch Old Forge Athlete of the Week for the week Jan. 23-30.
McGrath first spurred a 16-6 third quarter run against Carbondale with five of his nine points to put Old Forge in control of its victory over the Chargers, and then scored a team-high 12 points in a big win over Mid Valley to open the second half of play in the LLD2. Tim also scored 10 points with two big three-pointers in a loss to arch-rival Riverside.
Posters of Tim can be seen at Revello’s Pizza in Old Forge and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Old Forge Athlete of the Week.
