Big School Team # 6 LaSalle College (12) 0-0
The Explorers have done quite well for themselves in their first three forays into the PIAA playoffs – three consecutive victories over District 11, three trips to the PIAA semfinals and two PIAA AAAA title game appearances, including the 2009 state championship. That 6-2 state playoff mark is part of a larger run of an overall record of 63-18 (.778) since the start of the 2006 season, all under head coach Drew Gordon.
The 2012 season could prove to be more of the same – LaSalle brings back several quality pieces from its 12-2, PIAA semifinalist team of a season ago. WRs Sean Coleman and Ryan Winslow will provide a pair of steady targets for senior field general Chris Kane, who will be protected by a large offensive line, one of the biggest the Explorers have put on the field. Winslow is also a weapon as a kicker on special teams, and is a Pitt recruit at that position. Coleman and Jimmy Herron, a rising sophomore, provide experience in the defensive backfield for the Explorers, who are looking for a fourth straight season of 12 victories or more.
