YORK – When you are one of the top college recruits in the country, the eyes are always on you.  When you are one of the top teams in your state, the attention on your team is greatly magnified.   Governor Mifflin came into this season with both.  The Mustangs returned a core group that has Mifflin ranked #2  in 5A.  Mustangs Running Back Nick Singleton is ranked the #1 Running Back in the country and headed to Penn State.  Pretty lofty expectations for any team and player.  On Saturday night in York, neither Governor Mifflin nor Nick Singleton was disappointed.  Nick Singleton just got better each time he touched the ball. Governor Mifflin (1-0) had a dominating effort on both sides of the ball.  The combination of the two equaled a 55-6 win over a very good York High (0-1) team Saturday night.

Singleton finished with 281 yards and five touchdowns on 18 carries.  Nick was almost unstoppable in the third quarter. Here are his post-game comments.
