Delco Christian Cancels Season
The Delaware County Christian Green Knights announced that they will cancel their 2018 varsity and JV football seasons.
“Tough day today for @DC_KnightsFB . We love our program, the players and our coaches. We’re only going on hiatus … rest assured we will be back stronger than ever!”, the athletic department tweeted on August 24th.
Per Christopher Vito on PAPrepLive, low turnout and numbers drove the decision. The school has just 103 males, the third smallest in Division 1, per PIAA.org.
Nonetheless, the Green Knights had success. They won the 2014 Class A District One championship, and followed it up the next year by winning the Bicentennial League.
Wrote Vito, “The Knights, according to athletic director Reggie Hill, will continue to practice regularly and maintain weight-lifting sessions as though they were playing this season. He hopes to use this time to generate excitement among his current players and within the school, to support stronger program turnout in 2019.”
Delco Christian won nearly 60% of their games during their seven varsity seasons.
