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.
McDevitt’s math eye popping
Time for some crazy McDevitt numbers update. Keep in mind the Crusaders are blowing out so many teams, most of these players have not participated much if any in the fourth quarter and maybe even the third quarter, too. Freshman QB Stone Saunders is completing 67% of his passes with 22 touchdowns and zero interceptions. The other numbers for him are just window dressing. The two running backs, Marquese Williams and Cyncir Bowers, are averaging an identical 14.6 yards per carry, and all three wideouts with double-digit catches are averaging 17.8 yards per reception or better. All three teams remaining on McDevitt’s regular-season schedule are currently below .500.
Why do I think Palmyra-Cedar Cliff is going to be an interesting game? Confidence matters, is what I say, and the Cougars have it. Cliff is the better team, but mojo is hard to stop. Why do I think Hershey gets a win and beats Mifflin County? And why do I think Red Land is going to take care of Lower Dauphin and prove they are better than its record?
