    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 […]

  • Scranton Knights Team #14

    Scranton won seven games last season and with seven starters back on offense and eight more on defense, they should surpass their total from last season.   Scott Gorton takes over at Quarterback, and he will have some speedy receivers to throw to like Ramon Fields.  But, this team goes as Running Back Jake McCarthy goes.   A couple of lineman need to step in and give Jake some room to bake.
