Over the next couple weeks we will take you inside training camp of your favorite Delco team. For full reports on every team, make sure to check out our annual football preview guide, due out Aug. 30.
Our good friend Harry Chaykun offered the following quotes from Penn Wood camp.
Penn Wood coach Troy Brooks regarding Saturday’s scrimmage at Haverford
“It was a big improvement from last year. We know we have things to work on, and we’ll continue teaching techniques and fundamentals, trying to get things together so that we can compete. But this was far better than our first scrimmage last year.”
Akinshola Jolaoso, senior QB, who also is on wrestling team, talks about his relationships with All-Delco grappler Karon Lucas-Tillery and Dan Madonna, who is head wrestling coach and football defensive coordinator: “Whenever we pair off at (wrestling) practice, it’s Karon and I going with (Madonna), and he always wins.” He said that last part with a smile on his face.
Penn Wood is looking to rebound from a season in which they won only one game.
