Lots of history was made last night as the Current Seniors became the winningest class of all time at State High having now 33 wins. Additionally Sophomore stud Linebacker Ryan Domico notched his 100th tackle this season, coming into the game just 2 short. When I asked him about it all he had to say was “I did it” and smiled.
Looking at next week State Hugh will be taking on the Winner of Pine-Richland VS. Central Catholic. No matter who it is this State Hugh team is excited and ready to keep playing.
