This fall Whitehall High School’s stud running back Sa’quon Barkley took the Lehigh Valley Conference by storm. He has dominated the field as a runner, receiver, and as a linebacker wreaking havoc whenever he has the ball in his hands. He currently leads the LVC in rushing and will be the man to stop when 7-1 Whitehall takes on league rival Easton who has a matching record. Easton has a tough defense that has been stout against the run. Look for them to load the box and make Sa’quon work for his yardage.
Another intriguing matchup will be the head to head competition with Easton running back Shane Simpson. Shane Simpson is also regarded as one of the top running backs in Pennsylvania and will be given a heavy dose of action during the contest. Shane was awarded the Sledgehammer Award for the top running back at last May’s FASST Elite Camps Brader/Persa Elite Offensive Skills Camp. Sa’Quon has verbally committed to Rutgers University but most recently was offered by Penn State. This will be a matchup the avid football fan will not want to miss.
