This was the last time on Saturday the 24th for these Football Players to play together at the 27th ANNUAL DISTRICT 4 NORTH – SOUTH All – Star Game at South Williamsport High School’s Rodney K. Morgan’s Stadium. A victory was not in the cards as the South came up short in a 37-29 loss to the NORTH. The Selinsgrove Football Booster Club would like to wishGOOD LUCK to these fine young men if it is off to a job or off to college this fall.
Today Saturday June 17, 2017 was the Football camp at State College. The 7×7 was hel a couple blocks away so didnt get to see too much of them play but they went 4-3 I think on the day as there were a Lot of very good teams there. They also had a Lineman Challenge held over at Holuba Hall which is the indoor/outdoor practice facility for The Lions!! They paired the teams up so that there were 13 players to a team and we got matched up with a great bunch of kids from a Catholic School from Levittown. I am not sure where they finished but they had a good day and enjoyed themselves.
Holuba Hall….what an Awesome facilty ! !
Farmers Carry…..relay race where you pick up the two weights and race out to a cone and around and back
25lb Sand Bag Toss….you had to shot put it with two hands out front…..you started at goal line and each teammate had to toss from last spot and then measured for overall length
Flat Footed Long Jump…..start at goal line and you start next jump from where last teammate landed and then measured for length after all went
Sled Race…..relay race where everyone pushes sled to a cone and back then next person goes
Sled Tug……split your team in half and there is a weighted sled in the middle and one person pulls sled across their line and then opposite person pulls sled back across their line and it is timed until everyone pulls
Figure 8 race……..everyone races around the figure 8 and total time for team
Tire Flip……start at goal line and you pair up and each pair has to flip it 3 times and next pair go and so on until you get it down 30 yards and back to goal line
……..part 2 of State College Camp. The one challenge the boys got to do in the Lions weight room. Pretty impressive facility. Probably the highlight was at the end when they were almost done and got to shake Coach Franklin’s hand. Of course leave it to Critter to ask him for a pic. He said ok but make it quick as he had to run. Adam said Coach Franklin was probably not too happy with him afterwards as after they got their pic taken then other teams wanted theirs as well. He might still be there getting pics as there were like 42 teams there haha. Overall pretty good day and weather held out. Look forward to two weeks the SEAL!S will be at Berwick for their next competition. GO SEALS!!!!
