Chenango Forks Football RecapPosted: Updated:
Binghamton, N.Y. - It's Week three of high school football and there's no surprise that the Blue Devils of Chenango Forks are undefeated, entering Friday night's game against the Owego Indians, 2-0. But, this teams size and strength could bring Forks some difficulties that they haven't exactly seen yet this year.
"They always seem to have big strong kids up front. I think that would be their biggest strength is their size and their strength" said Head Coach Dave Hogan.
But, Chenango Forks also has size and strength, especially in their sophomore running back, Lucas Scott. The fifteen year old stands at 6-4, weighs 240 pounds and has made a lasting impression on the team as well as by standers right from the very start of the season.
"He's a different breed" said Quarterback Jacob Topa.
"Having him step up the way he has in the past two games is incredible. Once Jeremiah [Allen] is back and ready to go, those two in the back field, wow, it's gonna be a wonderful thing to watch."
Superstar running back, Jeremiah Allen is dealing with mono and has yet to step on the field for a game this season. Therefore, giving Scott the opening to show what he is capable as well. The sophomore has scored 8 touchdowns in two games, dominating the field and epitomizing what Chenango Forks Football is all about.
"It's not just Lucas, he would be the first to tell you that there is a lot of other people that have stepped up as well" said Dave Hogan.
"But, Lucas has certainly stepped up in a hurry when we needed him. I expected it, but I didn't expect it to be this soon."
