    A true changing of the guard! Senneca perfect fit at Easton.

    Easton Area Football will be back! Easton always loaded w/ talent walking those hallways and only need the right coach to bring them back out onto the field; this might be that very coach.

    Two seasons and they’re in the PIAA playoffs. Next season is all about Parkland for sure but that’s it, lol
