Feels good to be back!

Luckily District 1 is back and well part of District 12 is back so join me every week has we take a look at What’s Happening my little area of Pa. If you have anything you think should be included in this weekly column please drop me a note on twitter at WilliePAFN or email

Fast Start In the Chest Mont

The Chest Mont League kicked off their season last Friday and two games saw the opening kickoffs returned for touchdowns. West Chester Rustin’s Dayshawn Jaocbs returned the opening kickoff 98 yards against Unionville. Sun Valley’s Antonio Rivera returned it 88 yards against Great Valley.

For Rivera and his Vanguard teammates it was an emotional moment has they were playing their first game since the passing of teammate Tazuan “Taz” Thomas who tragically passed in July in automobile accident. Rivera was Thomas’s best friend. Jacobs would add another kickoff return of 90 yards in the Knights 35-27 loss to the Indians
