A look back at the Barons

As we enjoy the summer months with the football season ahead of us, here is one of the reasons the Barons of Manheim Central were so good this past season.

A Will Rivers 77 yard TD run is the video highlight.

Some have said this is the best offensive football play of the season for 2018-19 L-L League football.

Regardless, the Barons finished the season with a 14-1 record. They went to their 3rd state title game which they lost. They won it all back in 2003 against Pine Richland.

They won the District 3 Class 5A title beating Cocalico and won the LL League Section Two title with a 10-0 league record.

Below is the District 3 Title game highlights.

It was cold, below freezing cold but that did not stop the red hot Manheim Central Barons from winning their second District 3 Class 5A title in two years and 18th overall.

It was a lopsided 48-14 win for the undefeated Barons.

The Cocalico Eagles came out strong dominating the first 8 minutes of the first quarter. But then the Barons put the game into another gear.

Quarterback Evan Simon threw 5 touchdown passes in the game. Three in the first half to essentially put the game out off reach.

Barons’ running back Jake Harbach scored on an 11-yard run and Tyler Flick scored on a 3-yard run.

Cocalico’s QB Noah Palm scored both TDs for the Eagles.

The Barons (13-0) will now get ready for the District 1 champion Upper Dublin (12-1) in the PIAA Class 5A semifinals next week.
