QB Koenig Collects Fleetwood Football Records

Posted on November 25, 2014 by


KoenigZachary Wyatt Koenig is a senior at Fleetwood Area High School. Koenig resides in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, but attends Fleetwood Area High School.

“Zachary is a cute kid.  He’s a great quarterback,” senior Brody Cargen said.

Koenig is a two-year varsity starter for the Fleetwood Tigers Football team. In his sophomore season, he was given the ball in week 9 against Blue Mountain to prepare him to play quarterback at the varsity level the following year. In his first career start in the third quarter, he suffered a broken collarbone in the game.

“Zach was just as surprised as we were that his collarbone was broken. We knew something bad was wrong when he realized he couldn’t move his arm,” senior Tyler Emge said.

Koenig has recently broken multiple school records. Throughout his two-year career, he holds the following records: completion percentage in a game (80%), completion percentage in a season (56%), most completions in a game (22), passing yards in a single season (2,132), touchdown passes in a season (25), career touchdown passes (36), longest rushing touchdown in a game (86 yards), and total touchdowns in a season (31).

“Zach’s the best quarterback I’ve had the privilege of playing with over the last four years.  The dude can throw; he can run; he can do it all,” Emge said.

“I’ve only been to a few games this year, but, from the looks of it, Zach has great vision of the field and a great feel of where his receivers are on the field when he drops back to pass, whether it’s a quick pass or a designed three-step drop. His read option is great as well,” senior Mike Osenbach said.
