Coby Kephart has been selected as Warrior Watch’s Male Athlete of the Week ending on 9/22/23. The West Branch Football team took a huge win over Juniata Valley this past weekend during the homecoming game. In the game, Kephart had 2 big fumble recoveries, and he was also part of a defense that surrendered less than 100 yards of offense for the Warrior’s big win of 38-0 against Juniata Valley.

Coach Nines says “Coby made some tremendous plays during the game including recovering two fumbles! It is obvious that he does a lot of work outside of practice to make sure he is in the right place at the right time. His effort is always 110% which makes him one of those players you love to coach. He was extremely important in our convincing win against the previously undefeated Juniata Valley.”
