Athlete of the Week: Ethan Summa

Dane Denniston, Social Media Team

The Athlete of the Week this week is junior Ethan Summa. Summa plays defensive back and wide receiver for the East football team.

Last Friday, East defeated New Palestine 35-7 in the first round of Sectional play. On the first play of the game, Ethan intercepted a pass in the middle of the field and returned it for 31 yards to New Palestine’s 28-yard line, which set up the offense for an early touchdown.

Summa finished with four total tackles defensively, and one reception for 12 yards on the offensive side of the ball. He leads the team in tackles and has been a big boost for the team all season long. East hopes to continue their success this Friday when they take on Martinsville in the Sectional Semifinals.
