It was media day yesterday. A time for the local press corp and the high school football coaches and players to meet and greet each other.
When all is said and done…..Wilson is still going to be the top dog in the L-L League 2017 football season. They have won 64 straight L-L League games and 9 straight Section One Titles. They also won their 7th District 3 title last year making it to the semifinals in PIAA competition.
Here is a photo of Wilson quarterback Connor Uhrig who threw for 2,050 yards and 26 touchdowns last year for the Lancaster-Lebanon and District 3 Class 6A champion Bulldogs.
Here’s a recap of the 2016 Bulldog Season. The top highlights are the district title game.
Here is the report and highlights of last year’s District Title 28-14 win against Cumberland Valley on November 27th.
It was windy, it was cold and it was a tale of two games in one at Hersheypark Stadium Saturday night.
In the first half, the Eagles of Cumberland Valley held the Bulldogs to zero points to take a 14-0 lead into the locker room. Then the Bulldogs came roaring out to score 28 unanswered points with their first 4 possessions in the second half for the win. The win secured the District 3, Class 6A title for Wilson. It was the Bulldogs’ 7th district title overall and third in the last five years.
Wilson’s running back Iggy Reynoso rushed for 208 yards and two second-half touchdowns.
When QB Connor Uhrig’s 37-yard heave to Foday Jalloh pulled Wilson even with Cumberland Valley with 4:35 left in the third quarter the new game was on.
A little more than four minutes later, Reynoso’s 1-yard plunge to cap an eight-play, 60-yard drive put Wilson in the lead for good.
For the playoffs, Reynoso had 583 yards rushing and 8 Tds in 3 post season games. For the season take a look at his stats: 207 carries, 1,613 rushing yards, 24 TDs. Yeah, he’s good.
Wilson (12-1) will now take on the WPIAL champion Pittsburgh Central Catholic at 7 p.m. next Saturday in a 6A semifinal at Altoona’s Mansion Park Stadium.
Enjoy the highlights.
