We originally told you on Delcofootball.com that our annual football preview would be published in Thursday’s edition of the Daily Times. Uh, we were wrong there. It’ll be in stores and online FRIDAY, well in time for opening kickoff. Hey, we’re just happy to get it up and out in time…
So, what’s inside?
COVER STORY on concussion treatment at the high school level, what’s being done to prevent them, how head injuries change the way coaches call play, etc. We put in a lot of hard work to give this otherwise familiar story a Delco twist. It’s important to know what measures schools are taking to make sure kids are safe on the gridiron.
FULL TEAM PREVIEWS of all 23 schools in Delaware County, including looks at Harriton, Conestoga and Lower Merion. It’s the type of depth you’ve come to expect with our team previews, and you won’t be disappointedt. Every preview story includes colored pictures (it’s been only 40 years since the advent of color TV!) with “At A Glance” capsule boxes, which provide brief snapshots (returning players, outlook, etc) of every team
TWO-PAGE MASTER SCHEDULE … This is a preview tab staple. Every game that is on the Delco schedule this fall is listed here in alphabetical order (by team(.
OTHER GOODIES like Delco records and stats from the 2011 season.
Also coming Friday…
I’m working on previewing the big games this weekend, with news regarding Ridley and Strath Haven. I’ll also have an inside-back column to usher in the new campaign.
