Each week during the 2020 season we’ll offer some news, notes, tidbits and opinions from each of the five divisions in the Mid-Penn Conference.
Capital Division depth
Look at the MPC Capital showing some depth in the early going. Steel-High, Boiling Springs and Camp Hill are all 2-0. And division kingpin Middletown is still a strong squad at 1-1. The Bubblers have caught my eye a bit. It’s not the fact that they’ve knocked over two lesser opponents, and ended an 11-game losing streak in the process. It’s how they’ve done it by pounding those teams. A more thorough examination awaits from 1-1 Big Spring this week.
Weapons galore at Steel-High
*I know Steel-High has more 6-foot-3 athletic receivers than any team should be allowed. But to me that’s the eye candy of this offense. The meat and potatoes is the offensive line growing in confidence and Odell Greene running for 100-plus a game.
Shuster fueling the Lions success
*Camp Hill QB Daniel Shuster has moved from being a pretty good high school quarterback to very good. He’s spreading the ball around more, making his receivers better and giving the Lions more of a shot to win in 2020. Some small-school college is going to get a good one in the future. Just what I see.
