H.S. football notebook: Southern's Feudale shows off highlight-reel moves

By The Daily Item

WHICH WAY DID HE GO? Following his blockers, Southern Columbia fullback Adam Feudale was dangerous enough for Selinsgrove's defense. But when he took off on his own, that is when he put on a show for the Tigers' fans on Friday night.

Most of his runs -- en route to 178 yards on eight carries and a touchdown -- were of the highlight reel variety.

He was able to quickly reverse field again and again, and when he had to, he ran people over. In addition, he turned a screen pass into a 34-yard gain, but he probably ran 60-plus yards along the way. He made a move shortly after catching the ball that left defenders what happened to him. They may still be looking for him.

Oh, by the way, those yards came in the first half. He left the game just before halftime, but Southern coach Jim Roth said it was not because of an injury, there was just no need to keep him in the game.


HUNGER GAMES: Roth said one of the reasons his backs and receivers are making all the big plays is that, because they have such depth, and are so versatile this year, their touches are limited.

"It seems like everybody's hungry right now and when they get the ball, they're hungry to run the ball, they're playing real aggressive, and with the wideouts we have right now with (Zach) Tillett and Luke (Rarig) at the split end positions and the way our backs are catching the ball, it just gives a defense a lot to contend with."


ONE MORE DRIVE: Although the game was long out of reach, Selinsgrove gave its fans something to cheer about on the opening drive of the second half.

Mason Pope returned the kickoff 33 yards to the Selinsgrove 45. The Seals converted a pair of fourth downs, the second when quarterback Isaiah Rapp drew the Tigers offsides on a fourth-and-one with a hard count.
