Thursday, October 17, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Parkland offense scored on its first possessions of each half, but it was the Trojans defense that received the praise in holding off Freedom last Friday night.

Devante Cross ran 68 yards for a touchdown less than three minutes into the game, and Kareem Williams broke through for a 44 yard score on the second play of the third quarter, but three very timely interceptions from the defensive unit helped to preserve a 21-0 win over the Patriots at Bethlehem Area School district...

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

In his post-game speach to his team, head coach Jim Morgans seemed satisfied with the 47-6 road win over Nazareth, and he had one statement he made towards the Lehigh Valley Conference.

"At least now, teams around the league will know that we can throw the football too," Morgans said to his team.

Trojans take on Freedom

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Pres in HS Sports

The Parkland football team is known for its explosive rushing attack, but it was the Trojans' passing game that shone most brightly in a 47-6 win at Nazareth last Friday night.

"With the offense...

With all of those accomplishments, this season saw the two talented student-athletes go undefeated through the season and the first four rounds of this year's Class AAA...
