Tim McGrath

OF Basketball

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.
