2018 SV Panther Football Preview (Brought to you by Vassi’s Drive-In)

The Saucon Valley Panthers are fresh off a Saturday morning preseason football scrimmage with the Fleetwood Tigers.  Fleetwood is a 4A team out of District III who was winless last season.  Nonetheless, the Panthers shook off a sluggish start to dominate the Berks County team on both sides of the ball.  The Panther offense scored four touchdowns on five possessions while the defense failed to surrender a single first down during the game simulation session.

The 2018 scholastic sports season is officially under way.  Monday marked the first day of PIAA practice for high school sports across the state of Pennsylvania. Not even Mother Nature’s rainfall-fury could disrupt the first day of practice for these proud Panthers.

The Mom Squad was back on the gridiron for a fourth consecutive season.  Saucon Valley head football coach Phil Sams along with his players and staff hosted the Saucon Valley high school football program’s mothers for a little sampling of what their sons will be experiencing with two-a-day practices scheduled to start next week.

This past week the Saucon Valley School District campus was buzzing with a lively array of girls drenched with sweat and neon who ranged in the age from 7 to 13.  Dozens of young ladies spent their mornings under the watchful eye of Brickhouse Strength owner and operator Chris Fluck.  For the second consecutive summer, Chris and his staff once again introduced and taught some essential skills and techniques that are designed to enhance athleticism and, more importantly, attempt to help reduce the likelihood of injury.  More and more studies support the unfortunate idea that female athletes are more prone to sports-related injuries than males.  Chris realizes this problem and is again trying to do something about it.

High school football, along with the entire 2018-2019 PIAA sports season, is right around the corner.  Before the sports season is upon us however, Phil Sams and his football staff have, once again, provided a little football fix that is aimed at generating interest and providing fun to youngsters throughout Saucon Valley.  This week, about thirty-five Saucon Valley youth athletes joined the high school Panther football players for a fun and free clinic.
