Inside The Mid-Penn Conference
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.
1. Hello, Cedar Cliff, and welcome back. We missed ya during that one-week hiatus of the 2019 District 3 Championship game. Taking in the Colts on livestream bumping off Berks Catholic in double OT was exactly what this program has evolved into. The Colts still need to find a running game to balance out the offense a bit, but up front they are rock solid on both sides of the ball. You kind of forget QB Gannon McMeans threw for nearly 1,500 yards last season.

2. Milton Hershey has opted out for 2020, Lower Dauphin had to cancel its Week 1 game because of COVID-19, Mechanicsburg and Susquehanna Township have moved to the Colonial and Mifflin County has jumped divisions again. The MPC Keystone, we hardly recognize you.
3. In RB Marquese Williams and QB Lek Powell, Bishop McDevitt has more than 3,000 yards and 30-plus touchdowns of offense returning. And each had big games in the opener against Mifflin County. Not sure anybody else has that kind of firepower.
