This weekend begins two weeks of crossover games in the PSAC, eight games with each of the East schools playing the West. These games do not count for standings towards playing in the PSAC State game.

PSAC Power Performance;

Tanner Gary
Slippery Rock QB
Fort Cherry High School

This week it was a story of renewal, from a small WPIAL football power, Slippery Rock Quarterback Tanner Gary has had quite a trip throughout three college programs. From Bowling Green to FCS power Youngstown State, to Slippery Rock. Tanner seems to have finally found a home and for the first time since playing for the Rangers in the Black Hill Conference of the WPIAL it seemed to come together. Saturday vs. Kentucky State Tanner would have a day, a five touchdown day. (22-34 390yards 5TD 0INT)
Congratulations on the great start to Tanner and Slippery Rock Program.

Week 2 is Saturday September 9th
