    Shikellamy begins the season as one of the teams were on keeping an eye on outside the Super 16 Countdown.  The Braves went 6-5 last season and return some skill and quickness.  Joey Folk, and Gabe Tilford combine for a very quick running back tandem.  Quarterback Tate Krankoskie has Tight End Josh Kreiger and Wide Receiver Hunter Dodge as targets.  Shikellamy should improve this season, with the goal of a District Championship being a reasonable one.

  • Super 16: Team #11 South Williamsport Mounties

    South Williamsport went 11-2 last season behind impressive Running Back Gideon Green.   Green, who injured his ankle late last season is back for his Senior season.  Green should run for over 2,000 yards this season if his health holds up because the Mounties have a huge offensive line.  Left Tackle Ben Johnson is an imposing 6’5″, 300 specimen.  Green, is also a powerful 235 pounds.  Bringing the power, is our #11 Team.

    Mt. Carmel Area has a strong football tradition, no program has more wins in State history.  But, MCA is coming off a 5-6 season and they have plans on being much better this season.  19 starters return, ten on offense.  Quarterback John Ayres will likely move back to his former position at Running Back for his Junior season.  Tom Reisinger is expected to slide into the Quarterback spot as a Sophomore.  The Red Tornadoes are brimming with experience and confidence…doubling […]

  • Super 16: Team #13 Loyalsock Lancers

    Loyalsock is coming off another solid season but will miss the versatile talents of Marcus Williams.  Sock does have some sock, with Linebacker Hunter Webb among the best is the State.  Connor Watkins is the athletic Quarterback that Loyalsock usually tends to have.  The Lancers are a bit line on the line, but they return 10 guys on offense and 9 more on defense.  The Mt.

  • Super 16: Team #15 Tri-Valley Bulldogs

    Tri-Valley won eight games last season and should improve on that number this year.  Senior RB/LB Danny Scheib rushed for 16 Touchdowns last season, while back mate Dawson Schwalm accounted for 12 more scores and 1,300 yards rushing.  Throw in experienced QB Logan Yoder and the Bulldogs will battle Williams Valley in ‘A’ ball.

  • Stroudsburg football

    Stroudsburg went 7-4 last season and the Mounties believe they can, at least, match that total this season.  With massive Jerry Gutierrez manning the left tackle spot, and Quarterback Sherwin Stewart having some skill position players around him the playoffs are a reasonable goal.
