HARRISBURG – Harrisburg High is forging a legacy of excellence in District 3 football.  Four of the last six years a District 3 Championship football game has featured the Harrisburg Cougars.  In three of those six games, Harrisburg has emerged victorious.  The Cougars started with a 5A title back in 2016.  Harrisburg has now posted 6A crowns in 2021 and 2022.  On Saturday afternoon, at Severance field, the Cougars had no trouble with Manheim Township in a 44-6 victory in a District Three 6A Championship win.

Harrisburg QB Shawn Lee Jr. had an outstanding performance in the win. Lee Jr ran for three scores and had a pitch and catch TD pass to Mahkai Hopkins as well.  Hopkins had a TD run to open the game’s scoring.

The first quarter was the Mahkai-Hopkins show.  Hopkins ran in a TD on the Cougars opening possession and also scored on a TD pass from Lee.  The score was 16-0 after one for Harrisburg.

Quarter two featured two Harrisburg TDs as well.  Kyle Williams took back a punt and Lee punched one across for the Cougars to make it 31-0 at the break.

Manheim’s bright spot was a pick six by Nick Palumbo early in quarter three.  Harrisburg just shrugged the TD off and countered with two more Shawn Lee Jr. scores and a 44-6 final score.
