FOOTBALL: Hobart-Penn 1979 – “We Can Beat These Guys”

Nobody gave Hobart a chance to beat undefeated Penn in the 1979 Class 3A regional. Their mistake. On a cold, drizzly night in early November, 1979, Jeff Galovic, a senior at HobartHigh School, stood alone with his thoughts on the top row of the home bleachers at Brickie Bowl, his school's postcard-worthy football stadium.

FOOTBALL: Hobart-Penn 1979 – “We Can Beat These Guys” – Part 2

When Duke’s Christian Laettner hit a buzzer-beater to send his team into the 1992 NCAA Final Four, he did it against a Kentucky program that had clawed its

FOOTBALL: Unbelievable, Unforgettable – Part 3

While Andrean-Griffith, 2004, will always and rightfully be remembered for the frenzied final two-plus minutes, beginning with that shotgun snap to Finn, what cannot be lost is how incredible the game was from start to finish. At school that day, an Andrean player ripped a spare part from a leftover Halloween decoration lying around 5959
