High school football season is in full swing, meaning there’s plenty of writing to do. It starts with the previews — like those of Sun Valley, Archbishop Carroll and Upper Darby. But what are previews without games? Some are one-sided. Actually, a lot of them are one-sided. A lot. Some involve surprising competitiveness, especially when neighborhood rivalries like the Media Bowl are contested. Others turn into classics that go right down to the wire. And others involve cagey play, if not a lot of offense, like this pair of Episcopal Academy contests.
And once in a while, there’s a long enough lull in the action to look ahead to the next slate of games and focus on some individual accomplishments, like the impressive season George Walker is putting together
