1. Did you know the residents of the Capital went 5-1 in their Week 1 crossover games. Big Spring, Boiling Springs, Camp Hill, Middletown and Steel-High all posted wins to kick off 2020. The only team that lost was Trinity in a close one.
2. Right out of the chute we get Steel-High vs. Middletown on the docket in Week 2. This is a hammer game. The Rollers have liked their chances before against the Blue Raiders only to crash and burn. Steel-High RB Odell Greene and Middletown hammer Tymir Jackson, both 1,200-plus yard rushers a year ago, will have a say in the outcome for sure. The quarterback play and ability to tackle in space is the deciding factor for me.
3. If Boiling Springs sold a “fan version” of that jersey they wore in Week 1 on its way to ending that 11-game losing streak by drubbing Susquenita, I’d have to throw down the coin for that. I’d even pay up to $100 for that sweet purple and yellow beauty. Throw in the white helmets and I was smitten. The individual responsible for choosing that combo got it SO RIGHT!!!
