Mid-Penn Conference News and Notes: Capital Division

Each week during the 2021 season we’ll offer some news, notes, tidbits and opinions from each of the five divisions in the Mid-Penn Conference.

Roller’s Erby posting staggering numbers, but not yet tested in ’21:

Steel-High sophomore quarterback Alex Erby has thrown for 647 yards in two games on only 30 attempts with 12 touchdown passes. That’s a ridiculous 21.6 yards per attempt. Yes, the defending PIAA champions have played a couple of less-than-competitive teams. Also don’t forget they lost an all-state wide receiver who verbally declared for Penn State via a transfer.

Typically intriguing matchups might not be in ’21:

Couple of matchups for Capital squads that normally would get us excited to see where it goes, but this season these games will barely move the needle on the competitive meter. Steel-High will tangle with Newport. Think of that game at any point the last half-decade? This year it doesn’t seem in the cards to see a competitive game after the Buffs were rolled by West Perry. Middletown vs. Line Mountain would be fairly predictable in terms of the final result, but the Eagles would bring something to the table. Again, that doesn’t seem to be the case in 2021. Going to take a few more weeks to learn where the balance of power in this crazy division is going to split.
