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.

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.

Kids compete at state meet

Northampton cross country coach, Dan Benner, advised junior, Hayley Jackson, to get a good, fast start at the Class AAA PIAA State Cross Country Championships last weekend at Parkview Cross Country Course in Hershey, Pa.

Jackson followed his advice, and ultimately, completed the race in 21:03.

"I took it out pretty hard and wasn't terribly tired. I just wanted to stay up more, but I'm really happy with my time," Jackson said.

This was Jackson's second trip to Parkview, although her first race there was two years ago.
