The Beaver Swami Sayz: Road trip to Newport
Written by: Billy Splain on Thursday, October 20th, 2016
Into the Central PA unknown…
After getting back on track by defeating the Knights, the furry gridiron gang will head deep into Central Pennsylvania to face a new foe – the Buffaloes from Newport, PA who are currently ranked 6th in the state for class AA by PA football news.
What to expect: A natural grass field that appears to merge with the baseball field making one end zone the all dirt baseball infield (let’s hope for no rain!!); an unorthodox defense that is in constant motion prior to the snap and a strong, powerful running game complimented by a solid passing attack.
The Beavers are busy studying and game planning – the defense is cutting trees; building a corral to herd and contain the Buffaloes. The Beaver offense express has enjoyed a solid ground game led by Brock Adams and Dalton Kruzelak to compliment the well-known aerial attack. Quarterback Matt Miller is healthy and mobile; regaining his elusiveness in the pocket is a welcome sight and he has been able to spread the ball around to several receivers led by Junior Kyle Hopson.
The questions and the unknowns will be answered under the Friday night lights, but the Swami believes in the buck tooth bandits – DuBois 35, Newport 28
