High School Football reports.
 
I was thinking about a post I made the other week where I asked anyone and everyone who is playing this year to keep us updated on how your team is doing each week.

What about posting even if you do not play? It would be a great way to learn about different teams (@ any level, not just HS I guess) from all over! Kinda like a weekly team report and/or a game night report. I think it would be kinda fun to watch how teams do going into the playoffs and tracking possible prospects.

Who else thinks this is a good idea? I'd really like to do a report for my HS team as I am faculty (well, elementary faculty) and attend the games and know the players and coaches well enough. I think we need some more exposure somewhere!

Chime in! Who's willing! Who likes the idea? Who thinks I'm blowing smoke (on this topic... not everything else I say!)

I'm up for this...I'm close enough to the cradle of football to report on some damned good NE Ohio football teams (Massillon/Canton McKinley/ Cleveland Glenville, et al).

Could be fun...

Shamokin Area Indians Football 2008!
 
Shamokin Area Indians
2008 Football Season
Brought to you by millwalldavey

Head Coach: Dave Zielinskie (Entering year 2 of his second stint @ Shamokin)
Classification: AA
Confrence: Heartland D2

Coach Z comes into year two with a few new items in the offense, quite a few talented returnees and a VERY positive outlook. We should grow on the 1-9 season last year.

Coach Z built a power @ the AAA level with Shamokin in the 90's, with a few near misses @ state title chances and a few regular season #1 state rankings. Politics pushed him out and the program took a bit of a dive for a bit, save a few good seasons under recent coaches. Many in the community feel the right man for the job is back where he belongs and it wont be long now!


2008 Schedule: (all games 7:00pm)
We generally have one of the toughest schedules in the East.

Sat 08/16/08 Scrimmage - Susquehanna Township
Fri 08/22/08 @ *Scrimmage - Bellefonte Area H. S.
Sat 08/30/08 @ SOUTHERN COLUMBIA H. S.
Fri 09/05/08 MOUNT CARMEL HIGH SCHOOL
Fri 09/12/08 @ Central Columbia
Fri 09/19/08 @ SHIKELLAMY HIGH SCHOOL
Fri 09/26/08 DANVILLE AREA HIGH SCHOOL
Fri 10/03/08 SELINSGROVE HIGH SCHOOL
Fri 10/10/08 @ MONTOURSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL
Fri 10/17/08 Warrior Run
Fri 10/24/08 @ Mifflinburg Area
Fri 10/31/08 Loyalsock Twp

Entering the newly formed Heartland confrence, this looks like it could be a rough season for a 1-9 team last year. In fact, we are 7-22 since beating defending State Champion Southern Columbia Tigers in the opening game 3 years ago....I still expect some surprises this season!

The schedule is unforgiving with an opener @ Southern for the 2nd year in a row. Down from past years, but certainly still a force to be reckoned with.

This is followed up by the resurgent powerhouse and ARCH-ENEMY Mt. Carmel Red Tornadoes in week 2. Mt. Carmel owns this rivalry for the last 11 seasons, but survied near misses the last 4. (I'm proud to say I'm a mamber of the only graduating class @ Shamokin never to have lost to them!). Mt. Carmel is supposed to be LOADED this year.

Week 3 sees a new regular season foe, Central Columbia Blue Jays. We beat them in the playoffs about 4 years ago, but I cannot remember facing them in the regular season...

Next up is the Shikellamy Braves. Our only win came last seaon against this team who has not beaten us for 20 years. Interesting fact: @ 0-9 last year, we were the only winless team in PA history not to be mercy ruled. We put Shik in the mercy rule in the FIRST HALF!

The Danville Ironmen are another new team on the schedule. They have a high-power passing attack. Between his stints @ Shamokin, Coach Z was the head man here for a few years.

The Selinsgrove Seals are a major force in PA the last several seasons. They modelled their program after our Shamokin teams of the 90's, and now have one of Coach Z's assistants as a head man. You may remember them being knocked out by Thomas Jefferson a few years in a row (I think...) Tough team...

Next is Montoursville Warriors. This was a big playoff rivalry in the 90's, where we always prevailed (only to get beat by Berwick and Ron Pawlus soon after usually...), but this is a strong team who has our number. We had them on the ropes last year in week 2, but we ran out of gas.

The Warrior Run Defenders are another new one for us. I don't know much about them, but they always give Southern Columbia fits and have knocked them off in the last 3 years.

The Mifflinburg Wildcats have had a solid running game the last few seasons, but I think the good RB's are all gone. Beat us in a squeaker last year, running a kickoff back for a score after we pulled within 1.

Finally we finish up with a game against the Loyalsock Lancers, another new team. These guys were 1 game away from having the honor of being shelled by Terrelle Pryor in the state finals.

PREDICTIONS:
This is a brutal schedule. a .500 season in year two of Coach Z's return would be a blessing. We are a year older and wiser, 50 players strong (more than last year) and the defense is TOUGH.

I'm going to go ahead and call this an optimistic 6-4 year. If we can split the first two games, we can easily be 4-1 off the bat. I can see another 2-3 wins in the second half.

Reports to come after every game! Rosters and stats and other goodies as well.

Hope you enjoy and share your thoughts and your teams progress this year!

Thanks and I have a feeling this one will be a blood bath type of battle. These guys we're scrimmaging were on our schedule for the longest time.

We play Bellefonte in the regular season. Those guys had a great offense last year. We just beat them 35-33 in one of our closest games.

Anything to pass on that can share about them? I know its a scrimmage, but the coaches need practice too!

Shame I hafta miss that one... I have plans and although I'd normally break them, thats about a 1.5, 2 hour haul for me.
