The 6-foot-3, 260-pound running back and linebacker had a stellar performance in the rain on Thursday night in Verndale, scoring five touchdowns in the Pirates’ 52-6 victory over Ortonville in a nine-man game. Orlando’s scores all were from eight yards or less and he finished with 19 carries for 120 yards.

Craig, a two-time state wrestling champion with a chance for a third title this winter, will play football at the University of North Dakota.

Congratulations to Craig Orlando for being this week’s Old Dutch Quality Athlete of the Week.
