 Seals Football VIP Visits the ‘Grove!

A Seals Nation VIP was spending some time in the ‘Grove this weekend with his Pap Diz, some aunts, and uncles. Jack “Boon” Dailey, the son of John “JP” Dailey (’88) met up with Coach Kahn to talk about what a great man his dad was. John was a standout linebacker for the Seals and was a member of the 1986 team that upset the defending USA Today High School National Champions (Berwick). John was a Commander in the Coast Guard.

Coach Kahn tells us that it was not a surprise to find that Jack is a “chip of the old block”. It was a blessing getting to finally meet JP’s son and share stories of his father as a Seals football player. JP was a great man on and off the field. To honor what a great leader, friend, father, and family man John was, each year a senior football player is awarded the “John (JP) Dailey Man of Character” award.

Jack is currently living in Virginia with his mom and is playing little league baseball. Jack has a great sense of humor – just like his old man. Jack is also a very good swimmer. Of course, he is looking forward to playing football when he is old enough.

It took some searching but JP’s original #55 “blood jersey” was taken from the archives and given to Jack. Jack looked good in JP’s jersey. Although Jack lives in another state, he is an official honorary Seal. We will be keeping in touch.

Seals Football Players Continue to Give Back to School and Community

In addition to random acts of kindness, such as shoveling snow for our elderly citizens, working at Martha’s Table, and participating in various fundraisers to help others, this is the second year that Seals Football players have been reading to students in Selinsgrove Elementary School classrooms. Seals Football players visit the Selinsgrove Elementary once a month. Faithe Bastian, Literacy Coach grades 6-12, stated that the elementary school students really look forward to seeing “the big kids”. All of the guys have done a great job!!

Keep up the great work Seals!

FOUR SEALS SELECTED TO PLAY IN DISTRICT 4 ALL-STAR GAME!

Our most sincere congratulations go out to four of our beloved Seal seniors!  Ben Kahn, Conner Liesenfeld, John Daku and Nic Showers have been selected to play in the 2014 District 4 All-Star game by the PSFCA District 4 Coaches’ Association.  The game will be played on the South Williamsport High School Football Field on June 27th, 2014, at 7:00 PM.

The all-star game will feature the best high school seniors from the northern half of District 4 (which reaches all the way up to the New York border) versus the best of the southern half of the district.  The Seals all-stars will play on the southern team.  This game is rich with tradition and it is one of the oldest games of its’ kind in the state of Pennsylvania.  The South Williamsport Lions Club has sponsored this game as a fundraiser for charities since the early 1970’s, when it was known as the “Athletes vs. MS” game (MS standing for Multiple Sclerosis).  Last year the Seals were well represented in the District 4 game by Harley Stahl, Andrew Rhein, Mike Walter and Tyler Krebs.  The south team won an extremely action packed game, with outstanding performances by our Seals!

The entire Seals Nation should be in attendance on June 27th, to cheer on our proud Seals All-Stars!  Remember this – once a Seal, always a Seal!  These guys may be moving on … but they will NEVER MOVE OUT of the Selinsgrove Football program! 

2014 VARSITY FOOTBALL SCHEDULE RELEASED:

The 2014 Seals Football schedule has been released.  You will notice some exciting changes to this year’s lineup!  Trinity dropped the series after going 0-2 versus the Seals in the last two seasons.  They have been replaced on our schedule by the Central Columbia Blue Jays.  The Blue Jays are coached by Coach Jason Hippenstiel, who is in his second stint as the head coach at Central Columbia.  This schedule change rekindles a long-time rivalry between the Seals and Blue Jays that goes back to the days of the Susquehanna Valley League in the 1960’s, when both the Seals and the Jays were Class “B” teams (now called “AA”).  The Seals and the Jays played from 1964 through the 2001 season.

Every other year the Heartland Athletic Conference shuffles the teams in Divisions 1, 2, and 3 based on the most recent enrollment figures.  This year it has resulted in Danville (the longest standing rivalry in Seals history) being dropped to Division 2, while Montoursville has been bumped into the Division 1 category.  Again, this re-unites the Seals with the Warriors, who share a history that is rich with extremely hard-fought games and championship matches in the Central Susquehanna Valley Conference and District 4 playoff games.   The warriors are a very physical team who have seen much success under their current coach, J.C. Keefer.

Finally, let’s not forget that the Seals will dodge no one, as evidenced by the schedule they play. This is one of the most rugged, if not the MOST rugged in the state of PA!  The Seals’ opponents have a combined 17 state championships!

HOT TOPIC: WILL THERE BE 9TH GRADE FOOTBALL?

THIS IS THE EXPLANATION WE GOT:

At a recent Heartland Athletic Conference meeting this topic was discussed.  At this point there is no official word regarding which schools in the conference will be able to field 8th and 9th grade teams and who will not be able to.

 In August there will be a HAC meeting (attended by athletic directors and school administrators).  Each school will report whether they will have separate 8th and 9th grade teams, or whether the 9th graders will be brought up to join the 10th and 11th grade players to play a JV schedule.   In other words, each school will make one of the following choices:

  1. Full 8th grade team, full 9th grade team, grades 10 through 12 will form Junior Varsity and Varsity teams.
  2. Full 8th grade team (with the possibility of a “B” game each week), grades 9 through 12 will form Junior Varsity and Varsity teams.

 After each school reports its’ intent, the junior high schedules will be built.  The conference will match schools only playing 8th grade football on the junior high level with others doing the same.  They will also match schools fielding 8th and 9th grade teams with other schools who plan to field 8th and 9th grade teams.  They are waiting until August to do this because most coaches are reporting that they will have a much better idea about the number of junior high players they will have by then.

 The plan at Selinsgrove is to do what is best for the players based on the number of young men who make a commitment to play during the 2014 season.  Decisions will be made after the coaches have had the opportunity to meet with prospective players and discuss the situation with the administration.  Parents, please plan to attend Booster Club meetings so you can get the latest updates and join in discussions with Coach Hess regarding this matter.
