Cook, George want to end on high note

Thursday, November 22, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

Nick Cook and Kyle George have tried to be on the same page throughout the entire football season. But as the 2012 season continued to grind its way unfavorably for Northampton, the quarterback and wide receiver duo also deteriorated stat wise.

The two K-Kids hope things can pick back up this Thanksgiving when they take on rival Catasauqua in the final game of both team's regular season.

One thing for sure on the minds of both players is that they have the same mindset about this week's game.

Whitehall, Northampton football programs help Hurricane Sandy victims

Thursday, November 15, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

Who said that watching television isn't good for you?

The father and son duo of Tim and Dan Caffrey obviously used the television to spark an idea to help people that were ravaged from Hurricane Sandy.

As coaches at Northampton and Whitehall's freshman football teams, the Caffrey's decided to team up their high school allegiances for a greater cause by collecting donated goods to help people in the town of Union Bay, NJ over the weekend.

Pete's Top-10 Titles are on the line

Thursday, November 15, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

Not a very shocking week in terms of wins and losses, but Parkland's 41-10 victory over Easton pretty much showed everyone what they needed to know about the Trojans. Clearly, the best team around, but it would be interesting to see what the Rough Riders of Catasaqua could do against the Trojans.

Since district sports are run by computers now, maybe we can assemble a computer generated mock Lehigh Valley championship game?

Now that would be fun. Wouldn't it?

1. Parkland (9-2)

Last week's rank: #1

Might as well just put Parkland in the championship.

PIAA NOTEBOOK Curry still going strong at Berwick

Thursday, November 8, 2012 by ROD FRISCO Special to the Press in Sports

Time never stands still. Neither, it turns out, does George Curry.

Curry, the state's leader in career high school football coaching victories, has made his return to sidelines at Berwick Area High School a spectacular one. At 8-1, Berwick has qualified for the upcoming District 2 Class AAA playoff and burnished Curry's extraordinary credentials.

Kids fall to Whitehall, drop sixth straight

Thursday, November 8, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

It's been a long time since Northampton's football team experienced that winning feeling.

The hopes of a prosperous 2012 season appeared to be a reality after their week one upset over Stroudsburg, but that seems like an eternity ago for the Konrete Kids.

Northampton lost its sixth straight contest last Saturday night when they fell to Whitehall 45-3.
