Neumann-Goretti at Upper Merion preview
Upper Merion will host Neumann-Goretti Friday night, August 29th, in the 2008 season opener. Game time is 7 PM. Both schools are hoping to improve, after disappointing seasons in 2007.
Neumann-Goretti is led by 2nd year head coach Bill Sytsma, and features heavily-recruited lineman Kadeem Custis. The Saints finished at 2-9 last season, but did qualify for the Philadelphia Catholic League Blue division playoffs, losing to Archbishop Carroll in the first round. In 2008 N-G will play in the newly-formed PCL Blue AAA division; a result of the PCL joining the PIAA.
Joe Powel begins his 2nd season as head man at Upper Merion, which competes in the Suburban One League (American Conference). The 2007 Vikings were a young team, and finished with a dismal 1-9 record, but most of the starters are back, and eager to improve in ’08. UM grad Brad Scioli, who starred at Penn State and played in the NFL for the Indianapolis Colts, is now a member of the coaching staff.
