State College–Bishop McDevitt Football Preview
Time for a change of pace. I owe my alma mater a bit of face time to get the word out about this game this Friday night at 7. Bishop McDevitt comes into town this friday ranked #2 in the state and looking for revenge after State High upset them 20-19 at home last year. State College on the other hand, comes into the game with a #15 ranking in the state and are 22-5 in their past 27 games including a Mid Penn League Championship and a PIAA District AAAA Championship. In high school football losing doesn’t end your season the same way that it does in college football but a victory for either team will go along way for seeding and bye weeks in the playoffs just a few weeks away.
If you dont care too much about either teams playoff hopes it is still a good chance to enjoy State College’s best kept secret in friday night football in the heart of downtown. It is also a good chance to see one of Penn State’s soon-to-be-freshman in Alex Kenney who has amassed 18 TDs this season and has an eye-popping 8 yards a carry. Tickets are only 5 bucks and you are bound to see a great game between two solid teams that have a lot of history between them.
Both teams boast solid defenses and smart quarterbacks. My hope is that you’ll take the time to check out a future Penn Stater, support a good local sports team and enjoy a good football game.Lets Go State!
