2008 Season Recap

The team finishes 12-2 with its last game of the season, the District One Championship, against its newest “rivalry” team, the North Penn Knights. Closer than the score indicates, the ‘Skins trailed just 7-0 halfway through the third. Several tough breaks then let the game slip away and it ends 28-0 for the Lansdale club. Still, with the ’08 group a tough and hard-nosed bunch, led by Dan Shirey, Paul Carrezola and Jay Colbert, they showed their mettle multiple times that season especially in game 13, a District One semi-final contest against the Garnet Valley Jaguars. On the road in the frozen “Ice Bowl” game, the ‘Skins immediately fell behind 14-0 before rallying to take a stunning 21-14 win in weather conditions that were brutal. The squad also secured a measure of satisfaction that year with strong playoff wins against Downingtown East, 24-6, and Ridley, 31-3. The Cougars had topped the ‘Skins to end the 2005 playoff run in the 45-38 thriller at “Heartbreak Ridge” while the Green Raiders shut Neshaminy down, 27-7, during the playoffs the previous year. Shirey heads to Villanova after graduation while Carrezola accepts a ride to Rutgers. Colbert chooses the University of New Hampshire. All three will contribute significantly to their respective schools during their football careers at the next level.
