2015 District 3, Class AAA Preview

By Andy Shay

This bracket has recently been dominated by Bishop McDevitt. The Crusaders are once again the No. 1 seed and generally viewed as the team to beat. But McD has a loss this season to another team in the AAA bracket, Susquehanna Township, and that adds another layer of intrigue for 2015.

 

Defending Champion: Bishop McDevitt Crusaders. Head coach Jeff Weachter’s club is going for District 3-AAA title No. 6 in a row.Twp-CC-main

Top Four Seeds: No. 1 Bishop McDevitt; No. 2 Northeastern; No. 3 Manheim Central; No. 4 Solanco

Bracketology: The lower half of the bracket is full of tasty tidbits in terms of opening round match-ups and potential down the road. First, everyone is already on notice that Susquehanna Township is lurking in the No. 7 hole. The Tribe played a killer schedule, started 1-3 and has reeled off six straight including beating No. 1 seed Bishop McDevitt and a couple quality Class AAAA playoff squads in Cedar Cliff and Lower Dauphin. No. 3 seed Manheim Central is also in the bottom half along with No. 2 seed Northeastern. Do we really know what Northeastern is capable of as a bright lights squad at this level? That’s a huge question that needs answered. And don’t forget, No. 15 seed Northern Lebanon’s only two losses were by self-reported use of an ineligible player that led to forfeits. This bottom half of the bracket is going to be fun to watch unfold. The top half of the bracket is pretty simple. Can either Solanco at 9-1 or possibly Lampeter-Strasburg with an 8-2 mark compete with McDevitt?

Five Players To Watch: Ben Moser, QB, Susquehanna Township; Bishop McDevitt WR’s (Kobay White, Kyree Calli and Bryce Hall); Robbie Hassel, RB, Solanco; Koran Jordan, RB, Conrad Weiser; Tayvon Bowers, QB, Bishop McDevitt.

Most Intriguing First Round Game: It came down to a choice between three games, and it was nice to have that many too choose from. No. 10 Conrad Weiser at No. 7 Susquehanna Township at Roscoe Warner Field. Why? This is a re-match of a Week 1 game the Hanna Tribe won comfortably. Something tells me it might not be that easy this time around. The Scouts are a tough nut to crack and are good at what they do – running the ball. Hanna, rightfully, has high postseason aspirations. Probably not happy to see the Scouts again.

Championship Game: No. 1 Bishop McDevitt vs. No. 7 Susquehanna Township

2015 Champion: Bishop McDevitt Crusaders. We are all aware of that loss to Susquehanna Township, but it seems that loss served this team well. You going to pick against them winning No. 6 in a row?
