Dallastown/New Oxford- My Observations
- Coming into the game I heard a lot about Dallastown quarterback Andrew Henry, and that he was one of the best passers in the YAIAA. The ground game was so efficient for the Wildcats that Henry never really needed to pass although he did go 7-for-7 for 73 yards.
- Dallastown's Robert Catchings is a very fast man!
- Dallastown's Zaire Willis is a very large human being. I can remember two weeks ago during the GameTimePA chat everyone was talking about him and honestly, I was getting tired of it. After seeing him....MY WORD. The junior is 6-foot-5 355 pounds. That is a man right there!
- New Oxford's Wesley Beans is a strong hard runner that also possesses some great speed. Many people in the Hanover-area talk about his talents as a running back but he might have impressed me even more as a linebacker. the guy has incredible speed at the linebacker position. He can play sideline to sideline and lays some wood.
- New Oxford quarterback Anthony Lippy showed flashes of brilliance but also so a good amount of inconsistency. After talking to Colonials head coach Jason Thurston, I am not sure if he deserves the blame or if it is plays breaking downs and assignments blown that force Lippy to improvise.
- Finally, the Colonials have to be looked at as a legitimate contender in YAIAA Division II. Heading into tonight's game, New Oxford and Dover had a two game lead on the rest of the division and both teams lost.
