Alstan said it: “My favorite Saucon Valley football memory was making States and playing Imhotep in the PIAA state semifinals. The whole community was cheering us on as we left Hellertown.”
Coach Phil Sams said it: “In 2017 Alstan was a 1st team All-League offensive specialist and defensive back. This is the second year in a row that he was 1st team All-League defensive back. In 2016 he was also 1st team All-League wide receiver. The first thing I want to say about Alstan is that he may be the best football player to ever come out of Saucon Valley. That is saying a lot, especially since we have had many outstanding players here. Wolfe has been starting varsity football since his freshman year. He holds many records for Saucon Valley and could own several more, but he was asked to do a lot. His favorite offensive position is wide receiver. In the spring of 2017 we asked him to move to quarterback. He did not like the transition at first, but he is the ultimate team player and never looked back. Almost a year later he threw and ran for 1,000 yards. This is a crazy accomplishment especially since he never played quarterback officially until August. I could talk about Alstan all day, but I know this is not a book- just an article. That being said, this community will be talking about him for years to come because of his magical runs, passes, tackles, interceptions, etc. Furthermore, he is the most humble, freak athlete I have ever met. He is a very impressive player, captain, teammate and most importantly person!”
Congratulations Alstan, and best wishes in the future. The Source is with you!
