Bill Iezzi: Palmyra's Cannizzaro

While Palmyra tailback Alonzo Sadler was dazzling everyone with his speed and elusiveness against visiting Florence Friday night, his teammate, Nick Cannizzaro, was quietly helping to put away the Flashes.

Cannizzaro, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound wide receiver-defensive back, made a number of key tackles and intercepted a pass on his own 19-yard line to kill an important Florence drive late in the game and preserve a 30-14 win.

The junior also caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Shaun Kuhn to give the Panthers a 14-6 lead at intermission.
