  • Cory Spagenberg first Major League hit

    2009 Abington Heights graduate Cory Spagenberg made his Major League debut with the San Diego Padres.  Spagenberg made two sparking defensive plays at 3B and delivered a two run single in the 5’th inning to lift the Padres to a 3-1 win.

  • Berwick Bulldogs Team #1

    Berwick won the District Two ‘AAA’ Title last season and made a deep run in States.  The Bulldogs have to replace eight starters on defense, and QB C.J. Curry.   The Dawgs lost a lot, but have plenty of talent returning.  Mason Vandermark spearheads an experienced offensive line.  There is also speed at WR with Andrew Force and RB with Nate Maczuga.  Sr. Dallas Arner has the upper hand at QB and Mike Force is there to step in if needed.

  • Crestwood Comets Team #2

    Crestwood bracketed last season with a 41-7, and 14-13 losses to Berwick.  In Between Crestwood won ten straight games and they return quanity and quality especially on the line and in the offensive backfield.   Frank Aigeldinger is a battering ram at RB/LB.   Jay Popson is confident and composed at QB.  Rodney Koch is the rock on the line, and seven starters return on defense.  They open with Berwick, and there’s a good chance the Comets could meet the Dawgs in […]

  • Wyoming Valley West Team #3

    Wyoming Valley West lost their star QB Mike Baur, WR Mike Sands and TE Alex Barilla to graduation.  But, Spartans could improve on a 10-2 season.  Converted WR Brady Davidson is proving to be a accurate QB, Eric Acosta is a small, but speedy running back, and Jermichael Bunch is a fast target at receiver.  The line is full of 250 pounders.  Replacing six starters on defense is about the only concern-well that and games against Delaware Valley, Berwick and […]

  • Loyalsock Lancers Team #4

    Loyalsock won back to  back State Titles in baseball and they’re looking to add to their trophy case with a District IV Football Championship.  All State Baseball, Basketball and Football player Kyle Datres is back at QB and Safety.  Jake Glavin is the force on a solid offensive line and Sophomore Crae McCracken is getting Division I College looks as a Center/LB.  The Lancers lost a few playmakers on defense from last season, but Datres and Company gives this team […]

  • North Schuylkill team #7

    North Schuylkill won eight games last season and they should go north of that this fall.  Nathan Gadinski anchors a very impressive offensive line.  Junior Bobby Grigas takes over a QB with a couple of talented underclassmen at RB and WR.  When their skill guys get up to speed this team will take off.

  • South Williamsport Team #8

    South Williamsport lost to Southern Columbia in the District IV Class ‘A’ Title game last season.  The Mounties should mount another run at a Title this season with Southern moving up to Class ‘AA’ and no one in place to slow this juggernaut down.  RB Dominic Bragalone was the 2013 WNEP Dream Team Offensive Player of the Year last season after rushing for 3,200 yards and 46 TD’s.   Bragalone is joined by some superb offensive lineman and with QB Matt […]

  • Southern Columbia Team #9

    Southern Columbia reeled off  twelve straight wins last season before running into Old Forge in the first round of the Class ‘A’ State Playoffs.  The Tigers lost All-State players at Linebacker and on the Offensive line, not to mention their top Running Back in Adam Fuedale.  What Southern has coming back is QB Nick Becker, All-State WR Luke Rarig, and another All-State candidate in OL/DL Trent Donlan.  If RB Blake Marks can recover from a major injury suffered during early […]

  • Mt. Carmel Area Team #10

    Mt. Carmel Area has five State Championships in their school’s trophy case.  So, nothing less than a District Title is the goal every season.  The Red Tornadoes have seven starters back on each side of the ball from a team that won seven games last season.  QB Dom Farronato steps into a full-time role after filling in last year.  MCA is loaded with skill players- WR Travon White, TE Christian Kelly and Junior RB’s Blake Panko and Kyle Karycki will […]

  • Troy Trojans Team #11

    Troy surprised a lot of experts by winning the District IV ‘AA’ Title last season.  QB Jed Wright is gone, but virtually the entire line returns.  Dylan Brennan in a NFL sized 285 pound center.  MLB Kyle Schucker has 156 tackles and he is just entering his junior season.  Stout on the line, tough all-around.  The Trojans have the horses to repeat.

  • Lackawanna Trail Eyes A District Title

    Lackawanna Trail opens up the season at Lake Lehman.  The Lions will have to be ready for a very physical team.  After that the schedule gets easier, and the goal of winning a District Two Title becomes clearer.  Head Coach Steve Jervis talks about the strong tradition of District Two Class ‘A’ teams like Dunmore and Old Forge.

  • Northwest Area Rangers Team #12

    When you think of Northwest you think of Basketball but, the Rangers are ready to roll this fall.   This team lost to Old Forge in the District Playoffs last season, but nothing less than a District 2 Title will suffice this season.  QB Logan Womelsdorf tossed 26 TD passes last season.  RB/WR Tyler Berger is one of the best all-around athletes in District 2 and they have the pieces to surround both guys.  Fast and fun to watch-this is fast […]
