It’s hard to state just how impressive Penn State’s four-star running back commit Nicholas Singleton’s District Class 5-A quarterfinal performance against Warwick was Friday night, but I’ll try.
After a 108 yard, three touchdown performance in a district title-clinching performance two weeks ago was considered ‘being contained,’ Singleton left no doubt about his performance against Warwick. On just 16 carries, Singleton rushed for 326 yards and seven touchdowns. He scored touchdowns of 50 plus yards and averaged over 20 yards per carry.
So… yeah, Warwick was unable to contain Singleton in Governor Mifflin’s 63-35 victory.

With just under 1,500 rushing yards and 32 touchdowns before Friday night’s offensive explosion, Singleton has now rushed for over 1,800 yards and 40(!) touchdowns this season, averaging well over 14 yards per carry.
Already holding the pedigree of being the top-ranked running back in the 2022 recruiting cycle, according to 247Sports, the explosive playoff performances by five-star quarterback commit Drew Allar and Singleton should have Nittany Lions’ fans beyond excited for the future of the offense.
And after Saturday’s performance against Michigan, the thought of their potential couldn’t come any sooner.
