8-0, Senior Day, the Backyard Brawl and playoffs ahead…why, it must be a Spartan October.

We have much to cover today. I’ll start with thoughts on the WFA HOF, recognize our most recent veteran with a lot of Spartan championship hardware, provide the latest district playoff update, introduce the Century Club, talk oldster/youngster, enrapture you with more girls volleyball stuff, and toss out a tough Spartan trivia question. So pay attention.

Hall of Fame
Homecoming 2019 was another success as was the WFA’s 2019 Hall of Fame Induction. To refresh memories, former Spartan players Mike Mitchell, Pat Tierney, and Andrew Althouse joined Youth Football President Scott Jones and former West Reading Cowboy standout Ron Cardinal as this year’s inductees. I took a few moments last weekend to reflect on the HOF inductees. And when searching for the most common thread, I settled upon this uncompromising trait each possesses in abundance: passion.

For life, for competition, for their school, their family, their friends, their team.

Passion.

Gotta make it a quick one tonight, kids. It’s Friday night, I have WEEU streaming, thirty or so tenth graders in my backyard, a sensory-overloaded dog, and I need a beer.

Last Friday
The Spartans continued to roll, this time with a 45-6 win at Hamburg. Pretty typical Spartan effort for this season: 300 yards on the ground, good special teams, and a stifling defense. The only real concern I see with this team is their affection for penalties. Seven against the Hawks, six previously in Fleetwood, twelve at home against West York, six with North Schuylkill, and nine in the Twin Valley season opener. Only the Pottsville (four) and Blue Mountain (two) games were more reasonable. For a team executing so well in, really, every aspect of the game, the penalty thing is baffling. I’m sure this will tighten up as the regular season draws to a close.
