2016 Parent/ Player Meeting
SELINSGROVE HIGH SCHOOL
Head Football Coach, Derek Hicks
A letter from Derek Hicks to the Selinsgrove Football Parents.
Dear Selinsgrove Football Parents,
On behalf of the Selinsgrove Football Staff. I would like to welcome you to another exciting football season. It is a joy to have you and your son as part of our program.
In order for this season to be an amazing one, parental assistance will be needed! From time to time our football booster will need help and support with various activities and fundraisers. I encourage you to be involved whenever possible. All the work parents do for the program means a great deal to the players and the coaches.
As we advance into the 2016 football season, please keep in mind that high school football is an extremely competitive sport. As a staff, our philosophy is to play as many young men as possible. However, the players who work hard, are dedicated, and have natural ability will play the most.
As coaches, we see our players daily in practice and on game film. Thus, we are in perfect position to evaluate their performance and effort. Academic performance and proper demeanor, on and off campus, are also considered when evaluating players. No matter how players begin the season, there is always the opportunity to earn or lose a position throughout the season. Therefore, players must start strong,stay focused, and remain solid throughout the year!
If you ever have questions or concerns, please contact me. Again, welcome to the Selinsgrove High School Football program.

FORMER SEAL RIDES WAVE
POSTED: MAY 2, 2016
BY: SECV – 8
Time to take some notes from former Southern Columbia state champ and New York Giants Super Bowl winner Henry Hynoski. When it comes to going undrafted, the Tiger alum has been there and done that. And now it looks like another local graduate is seeking his chance on the big stage.
Selinsgrove Seals standout RYAN KEISER will be trying out for the BALTIMORE RAVENS after he went undrafted this pass weekend in the 2016 NFL DRAFT. This is the culmination of an incredible story for the PENN STATE NITTANY LION defensive back. A walk-on at PSU, KEISER played in 42 out of 43 possible games while being elected co-captain for his senior season. But the season was cut short after a rib injury forced him into the hospital for almost a month. His college career ended with a slew of awards, most notably his third-Academic All-Big Ten and a selection on the Academic All-American ballot.
In order for KEISER to make the team and earn a free agent contract, he’ll need to catch the coaches eyes in just three days from May 6-9. The first step will push him to the next round of tryouts, and with everything he has persevered through in his young life, there is no counting him out.
WE WISH KEISER THE BEST OF LUCK PURSING HIS NFL DREAM.

With the new classification system going into effect for the 2016 season and some defections out of Division III, Heartland Athletic Conference football will look a little different next year with three six-team divisions.
All teams will play five division games and four crossover games.
There is one addition this year — Central Mountain — is now a full-fledged football member this season and will play in Division I. Michael Nines won’t be returning to the sideline for Central Mountain this season. He was replaced by former Montgomery coach James Reidinger earlier this year.
Central Mountain will be the lone Class 5A team in the division. The other five teams in the division are Jersey Shore, Mifflinburg, Selinsgrove, Shamokin and Shikellamy. The Bulldogs, Seals, Indians and Braves will all be Class 4A in next year’s new six-classification system. Mifflinburg is the lone Class 3A team playing in Division I.
The most interesting nonleague matchup new to the schedules in Division I comes with Shikellamy and Williamsport facing off on Sept. 23. That could be a big points boost for the Braves, as Williamspoint is a Class 6A school.
Division II will feature Danville, Lewisburg, Milton, Montoursville, Mount Carmel and Southern Columbia. The Black Panthers and Warriors drop down from Division I. The Ironmen and Green Dragons join Milton and Montoursville as Class 3A schools, while the Red Tornadoes and Tigers will be in Class 2A.
Division III will be Bloomsburg, Central Columbia, Hughesville, Loyalsock, South Williamsport and Warrior Run. The Blue Jays and Defenders drop down from Division II. All of the Division III schools will play Class 2A in 2016 except for Loyalsock, which will be Class 3A.
Montgomery and Muncy are no longer in the HAC.
The teams will play a scrimmage on Aug. 20 and opening night of football season will be Aug. 26. The regular season will wrap up on Oct. 28 and the first round of the district playoffs will begin on Nov. 4.
