Lycoming Football - The Faces of the 2019 Warriors

Williamsport, PA - The thing I love about following Lycoming Football (Home and Away since 1996) is the players. It isn't all football for me. I know those who strap on those cleats are also getting a great education from a well respected college. I know, because I am a 1977 accounting grad who's life was changed by Lycoming College. So after two days of photos, I have randomly picked some photos and tried to research some facts about each player and their schools if available.

So enjoy the ride men of Blue and Gold. Getting a great education and playing the game you love so much. It is one of the hardest thing to accomplish in my opinion. All the best!

Fr WR Brady McClintock - Littlestown HS, Littlestown, PA
Littlestown is a borough in Adams County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 4,434 at the 2010 census.

Originally laid out by Peter Klein in 1760, the town was first named "Petersburg". German settlers in the area came to call the town "Kleine Stedtle". As confusion between the town and a neighboring town (also named "Petersburg", now York Springs grew, the town officially changed its name to Littlestown (essentially a translation of "Kleine Stedtle" from German) in 1795.

Littlestown is surrounded by three larger towns -- Hanover, Gettysburg, and Westminster—all within 10 to 20 miles (32 km) driving distance.

Fr LB Ramessis Rolon - Bensalem HS, Bensalem, PA
Bensalem Township is a township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States and borders the northeast section of Philadelphia. The township is composed of many communities, including Andalusia, Bensalem, Bridgewater, Cornwells Heights, Eddington, Flushing, Oakford, Siles, Trappe, and Trevose. As of the 2010 census, the township had a total population of 60,427, which makes it the largest municipality in Bucks County, and the ninth largest in Pennsylvania. The township, which was founded in 1692, is almost as old as Pennsylvania itself, which was founded in 1682.

The origin of the name Bensalem likely comes from references made by settler Joseph Growden, who named his estate Manor of Bensalem in honor of William Penn and the Semitic term for peace, Salem. It was originally named Salem; the first syllable Ben was added in 1701.

Fr DB Antwoine Carter - Greencastle-Antrim HS, Greencastle, PA
Greencastle is a borough in Franklin County in south-central Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 3,996 at the 2010 census.[3] Greencastle lies within the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania. Greencastle was founded in 1782 by John Allison from the Barkdoll House.

#49 Fr LB Taytdum Fortson - Mifflin County HS,  Lewistown, PA
#52 Fr LB Shawn Truhe - Lehighton Area HS, Lehighton, PA
#49 Fr LB Taytdum Fortson - Lewistown is a borough in the county seat of Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is the principal city of the Lewistown, PA Micropolitan Statistical Area, which encompasses all of Mifflin County. It lies along the Juniata River, 61 miles (98 km) northwest of Harrisburg. The number of people living in the borough in 1900 was 4,451; in 1910, 8,166; in 1940, 13,017; and in 2000, 8,998. The population was 8,338 at the 2010 census. Of the four communities in the United States named "Lewistown", this borough is the largest.

While Lewistown did receive the prestigious All-American City award in 1973 for its rebuilding process following the disaster, many of the blue collar workforce left the area to head south, along with the companies which chose not to rebuild in Lewistown.

Lewistown is home to the Pennsylvania State Fire School, which is the only such facility in the state. Firefighting in Lewistown is very important, as volunteer firefighters have strong allegiance to the multiple independent fire companies in the borough to which they devote their time.

Today, Lewistown is still looking to rebuild, but is now overshadowed by nearby State College. Due to the growth of Penn State and the construction of a new highway system, Lewistown is now struggling to avoid becoming the last rest stop for travelers coming from the east on their way to State College.
#52 Fr LB Shawn Truhe - Lehighton (/li'hɑitən/) is a borough in Carbon County, Pennsylvania, United States, 77 miles (124 km) north of Philadelphia, and 54 miles (87 km) south of Scranton. In the past, it developed early industries because of water power from the Lehigh River. With the location of a repair facility here and its regional operations, the Lehigh Valley Railroad became for years a major employer of thousands of people from the area. Post-World War II railroad and industry restructuring led to job and population losses.

From a peak of nearly 7,000 in 1940, the population was 5,500 at the 2010 census. Lehighton is the most populous borough in Carbon County and still the business hub of the county.
