Dan Foor and a Preview for Shikellamy

Shamokin takes a short trip down route 61 to take on the Braves of Shikellamy.  Last years the Braves picked up their first win against Shamokin since 1983.  This season we could include both teams in playoff talks.

The Braves feature a strong running game led by QB Garrett Pope and Dominick Wolfe.  Shamokin Area counters with 1000-yard rusher Jared Montgomery.  Both teams like to keep things on the ground with Shikellamy running a triple option while the Indians counter with the wing-t.

Right now Shamokin leads Shikellamy by 10 point in the District IV standings and face Mount Carmel for the Coal Bucket next Friday at the Silver Bowl.  Shikellamy closes out the regular season at what should be a winless Milton Black Panther team.

The Braves defensively had a hard time stopping anything in the beginning of the season, but have been better lately.  Shamokin's Achilles heel has been pass defense?  Will a pass win this for the Braves?  We will see tonight.
