North Attleboro senior Tyler DeMattio has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Nov. 2 through Nov. 7. DeMattio is the ninth player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year.

DeMattio led North to a blowout win in the opening round of the Div. 3 tournament. Plymouth North scored on the opening possession Friday at Community Field, but the Rocketeers scored the next 48 and advanced to the quarterfinal. DeMattio provided the fireworks on offense for North, rushing for five touchdowns and kicking the first four extra points, finishing with 34 of the team’s 48 points.

After giving up a touchdown on the opening drive of the game, North responded with a touchdown of its own. DeMattio, who finished the night with 143 yards on just 10 carries, scored his first touchdown with a one-yard dive and then added the extra point to put North ahead for good. He added a 17-yard TD on the next possession, an 11-yard score on North’s third drive, and a 23-yard TD to make it four for him and put North ahead 28-6. A Danny Curran kickoff return touchdown got the second half started right for North and on its next possession DeMattio added his fifth score, this time from 19 yards out. North advanced to host Milton this week at Community Field.
