Andy Shay’s Elite 11 after Week No. 4

11. Hempfield3-1NR
The Black Knights own a quality win (William Penn) and fell to No. 9 Central York by 10 points in their four games. The Lancaster-Lebanon League is deeper and stronger than ever. Huge tilt with Manheim Township this week.
10. Lampeter-Strasburg3-110
Posted its second shutout in the last three games and is playing a little angry after dropping the opener. Do not sleep on this club down here at No. 10.
9. Central York3-19
Spring Grove isn’t a struggling team and brought a couple solid wins to the table for this one. And the Panthers promptly went out and won going away by 35 points. This team is getting better.
8.Manheim Township3-18
You pull off a massive road upset at Harrisburg then have to run around and validate with another full-metal-jacket test on the road at Spring-Ford. The 17-14 result might not look like a thing of beauty, but trust me, it was a gem of a win.
7. Wyomissing4-07
Berks Catholic is a winless team you really don’t want to play. They are battle tested and give their best shot. The Spartans were not surprised by BC, but it took a solid outing to stay unbeaten.
6. Solanco4-06
Three of the Golden Mules’ four games have been decided by one or fewer scores. Some might say it’s a team living on the edge. But also that kind of consistency in tight spots is not an accident.
5. Cumberland Valley4-05
You can almost see the confidence of this team come pouring out on the field. Never gave CD East a chance to be in the game, and that will serve them well in a titanic matchup with Harrisburg on deck.
4. Manheim Central4-04
The balance offensively this Barons squad has is going to make them an even tougher out. Nearly 550 yards of total offense against a Susquehannock team they were always going to roll, and four touchdowns through the air and three on the ground. Balance!
3. Harrisburg2-13
The return of head coach Calvin Everett to the sideline after his three-game suspension certainly had an impact on the Cougars. They went out and drilled Carlisle to restore some order on Market Street.
2. Exeter Township4-03
Fully aware the talent level at Governor Mifflin has fallen off a cliff for this season and the Mustangs are a one-win team. Still, the Eagles winning by 30 just doesn’t look like the right result in this matchup. Quality of schedule is definitely up for debate, but the results are not.
1. Bishop McDevitt2-11
Had to wait an extra week for the response from the Crusaders after that Week 1 setback to hammer Imhotep. And good gracious what a response. Taking La Salle College out to the woodshed with a 56-7 win is a clear message delivered.
