Future Lions Report

A synopsis of how the high school seniors who have already verbally accepted a scholarship offer to play football at Penn State performed this past weekend.

Jason Evans:

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jason carried the ball 17 times for 81 yards (4.76 yards per carry) including a touchdown as Harrison (9-0) defeated Marietta (5-4) by a score of 31-0 to clinch at least a share of the Region 5-AAAAA championship.

Jason added 34 yards receiving on 3 catches and ran 65 yards on his only return. On defense, he had 8 tackles, caused and recovered the same fumble, added four pass breakups and pitched a shut out on his receiver which makes 8 shut outs this season.

The Hoyas play at home this week against Walton (8-1) to determine the region's No. 1 seed.

Paul Posluszny:

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Paul Posluszny rushed for 182 yards on 24 carries and scored two touchdowns (6 and 9 yards respectively), helping Hopewell (10-1) defeat Knoch (9-2) in their WPIAL AAA quarterfinal matchup by a score of 28-14.

Hopewell will face Thomas Jefferson (11-0) in the semifinals.

Austin Scott:

According to the The Morning Call, Austin ran for 299 yards on just 27 carries (11 yards per carry) and scored 5 touchdowns as Parkland (10-1) won their District 11 AAAA semifinal game against Bethlehem Freedom (7-4) by a score of 42-27.

Austin touchdown runs included two 47-yard touchdown runs and a 76-yard scoring run to put the game away.

Parkland will play Bethlehem Catholic (11-0), who gave them their only defeat of the season in OT, 29-28, for the District 11 championship.

Scott is just 119 yards from Pennsylvania's single-season rushing record (3,089 yards by James Mungro in 1995). So far this season, he has rushed for 2,971 yards and 42 touchdowns.

John Shaw:

Spring Grove (9-2) lost their District 3 Class AAAA playoff matchup against Central Dauphin (11-0), the top ranked team in Pennsylvania, by a score of 42-0.

John's 8 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble and 1 pass deflection were not nearly enough to fend off the abundantly talented Rams.

The York Daily Record has the game story.
