Dan Foor Discusses Jersey Shore for Week 2

For the first time since 2005, Shamokin Area won their opener. Hoping history doesn't repeat itself like it did in 2005. The Indians are hoping for a better result in Week 2 than the loss to Montoursville in week 2 back in 2005 when the new turf made it's debut.

The Indian allowed one touchdown on the last play of the game, forced two turnovers, and only committed three penalties for 15 yards.

Where the Indians had to play pass defense against Mifflinburg, they have to face the triple option against Jersey Shore who lost 28-20 to Loyalsock in their opener.


I had the honor to broadcast the opener between Line Mountain and Southern on Saturday night. In one of the strangest games I ever seen Line Mountain rolled out to 20-0 first quarter lead with over 200 yards in total offense in the quarter led by Eagle QB, Marty Beninsky. (Even though it was high school, he would have earned Heismann votes)

Well, Beninsky, center Bryce Martz and FB Joey Hukill all went down in the second and 49 unanswered points later, Southern Area won going away.

Here is hoping we see a week 11 or 12 playoff rematch.


Strangest this of Week 1? Usually, in covering high school football it is not unusual to make it through September only wearing shorts and that near held true. Friday was brutal with the press box being about 90 and humid. Saturday on the other side, had temps in the low 50's in wind by the end of the game. It was a night for trousers.

As it goes, it was the earliest in 21 years that I needed a pair of jeans in the high school football season.
