    Lewisburg finished 7-4 last season and lost their top two Wide Receivers Noah Inch, and Matt Fedoraka to graduation.  The Green Dragons have a young Quarterback to they will power up behind their running game and a strong defense.  They should match or surpass their win total from last season.

    Super 16 Team #11 Williams Valley

    Williams Valley could easily reach double digit wins this season.  The Vikings had a rash of injures last season, but have every Letterman back, but David.  Good size on the line led by Damian Shoop and a host of skill players has the Vikings as a favorite to win the District 11 Class A Title.

    North Pocono football

    North Pocono was 5-5 last season and it’s been seven seasons since the Trojans have been in our Super 16 Countdown.  But, NP should be a contender this season with a strong crew of Linebackers, a good Sophomore QB in Donny Blaine and the very strong Matt Slagus on the line.  The playoffs should be in the works if the Trojans stay healthy.

    Super 16 Team #13 Southern Columbia

    Southern Columbia won a record 7th State Championship last season.  This time the Tigers won the ‘AA” State Title by going 16-0 behind a veteran squad.  RB Hunter Thomas is back but this is a very ‘green’ team that needs to get some varsity time under their belt.  Again, it IS Southern Columbia so the cupboard isn’t bare, but it isn’t stocked full like last season.

    Super 16 Team #14 Selinsgrove Seals

    Selinsgrove won a District IV ‘AAA’ Title and 12 games, but will be hard pressed to match that win total this season.  Head Coach Derek Hicks in his second season lost 23 Seniors, but does return an elite QB in Logan Leiby and will use DB Garrett Campbell on offense this season.  The Seals won the seven on seven skills camp at Berwick, so if the line does the job this team can get double digit wins again.

    Montoursville took the eventual ‘AA’ State Champions from Southern Columbia right to the final horn before dropping the D4 Title game 56-50 last season.  The Warriors return nine starters and are led QB Brycen Mussina and WR Tom Shea are a dynamite one-two punch.
