Trojans can't answer Red Rovers' assault

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

As the Easton football team ran off the field last Friday night at Parkland School District stadium, the Trojans and its staff were left stunned. The coaches stood motionless near their endzone trying to grasp what just had happened.

Ezra Gaines caught a 53-yard pass from Brad Wilkins to put Easton up 35-14 in the fourth quarter. The Red Rovers scored 28 unanswered points, and completely shut down Parkland offensively, on their way to a 35-28 Lehigh Valley Conference victory.


Krajcir's athleticsm is a big asset for the girls volleyball team

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

Senior Callie Krajcir came out of the girls volleyball preseason with a defined role.

After double sessions had ended and the roster was set, she was slotted as the team's libero.

But when the defending state champion Trojans took the court in their season-opener against Freedom on Tuesday night, Kracjir wasn't donning the red jersey reserved for the player at that spot.

Instead, Lyndsey Iacobelli was playing libero and Krajcir was on the front line.

"She is so...

Football hoping to bounce back quick

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Turnovers were the key component in the 37-35 season opening loss at Delaware Valley last Friday. A slow start didn't help, but the Trojans shot themselves in the foot by turning the ball over three times, while still eclipsing over 400 yards of total offense.

What helps Parkland is that they were not the only Lehigh Valley Conference favorite to lose the opener. Whitehall and Liberty also got off to 0-1 starts. The Trojans will look to not only get off the schneid and into the win...

Sluggish start does in Trojans against DV

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by LOU RUSNOCK AND CJ HEMERLY in HS Sports

If the Parkland football team learned one thing about itself in Friday's opener with Delaware Valley it was that its new offense could put up points in a hurry.

Unfortunately for the Trojans, it took a little too long to figure out how to crack the Warrior defense.

The slow start doomed Parkland in a 37-35 loss in Milford.

"There's no question it hurt us, especially the turnovers," head coach Jim Morgans said. "We messed up a kickoff in the first quarter which hurt us,...

Beth. Steelers 32, South Parkland 6

The Bethlehem Steelers dominated South Parkland in their season-opening SYFL matchup on Saturday. Poor tackling and mistakes doomed the Trojans from the start. The Steelers struck first on a 60-yard touchdown run on the third play of the game.

The Trojans stayed in the...

COLLEGE CORNER Hibshman has a new role for Temple

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

Going back to her days at Parkland High School, Temple University field hockey player Sydney Hibshman was one of the anchors of the Trojans defense.

After seeing time on defense and at the forward position in her first collegiate season as an Owl, Hibshman is entering 2012 at a new position. She'll be seeing plenty of time at either the left or right midfielder position.

While being accustomed to playing on the defensive end of the field for much of her career, Hibshman is...

Herod wrapping up successful career at Ship

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

When it came down to choosing a college, it seemed all too easy of a choice for Kevin Herod, a senior fullback. The Parkland grad came through the Wing-T offensive set run by head coach Jim Morgans, and was recruited to do just that when he signed to play at Shippensburg University.

"When I came to visit Shippensburg, I liked the coaching staff and the way they run the Wing-T offense," said Herod. "Since it's what I ran at Parkland, I would be able to pick it up. I was also able to...

Laub gets chance to lead Richmond

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

John Laub was bred into the game of football. At the ripe age of six, Laub was out competing on the gridiron. He had the raw talent from a young age and that was due in large part to the legacy before him.

Laub's father, John, played football at the University of Delaware, and his grandfather, Doug, played at the University of Penn. He even has a second cousin known for his success in the game, former pro Matt Millen.

"It's a game I just grew up to love," said Laub. "It wasn't...

Robertson led volleyball to new heights

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

Perhaps the scariest thing about Kelly Robertson's junior year as a Parkland athlete is that it could have been even better.

All the talented volleyball middle hitter, basketball center and track jumper did was lead one team to its first ever state title and earn state MVP honors in the process.

A knee injury during basketball season put a damper on what could have been a highly decorated campaign, but it wasn't enough to stop her from being named the 2011-12 Parkland Press...

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

The tragedy that engulfed the Philadelphia Eagles organization Sunday morning was one of shock and sadness with the sudden death of Garrett Reid.

The 29-year-old son of head coach Andy Reid was found unresponsive in a Lehigh University dorm room at 7:20 am Sunday when he was found by an Eagles official.

The aftermath and questions that remain are now part of the puzzle that the Reid family, Eagles organization and fans seek in the wake of a family tragedy.
