W1nning 4 his father: Tommy Kirchhoff and best friend Bobby Whalen carrying on Kirchhoff legacy

It wasn’t their finest juncture, but it would be unwise to judge the Kirchhoffs from this indubitably human moment:

Tom Kirchhoff, confined to his electric wheelchair by the effects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, was unhooked and exiting the family van as wife Staci and son Tommy began walking toward the house.

By 4th Down Staff

Somebody must have made a deal with Mother Nature for the 2017 version of Week Zero. The opening night of the season was blissfully cool and comfortable for late August.

And a team under stress, the Camp Hill Lions, could not hold up under the heat Palmyra brought in the fourth quarter at Buck Swank.

Trinity outlasts Annville-Cleona, 36-34

By Jeffery Kauffman

LOWER ALLEN TWP. — Trinity used a heads-up play by linebacker Dante Manetta to grab a 36-34 victory over Annville-Cleona in their Week Zero contest Friday night at COBO Field.

Tied at 34 in the final quarter, Trinity’s Norvell Bartow lined up to kick his fifth extra point. The kick was low and blocked by the interior line of the Little Dutchmen, and an alert Manetta picked up the ball and ran it in for a two-point conversion. The play proved to be the winning margin.
