Media Bowl Tonight! - 7pm at Penncrest

Tonight's high school football game between Penncrest and Strath Haven was once known as the Burger King Bowl.  Back when I played for Penncrest we'd meetup the night before each  game as a show of team camaraderie.  There wasn't a whole lot to do back then, so this was a big deal. 

Because this former Burger King was located at the corner of Baltimore Ave and Providence Road, Strath Haven showed up too for their night out.  Times sure have changed, as there is a bank there now, but the rivalry is bigger than ever.

Penncrest won last year, but I think Strath Haven may hold the overall record for wins. Either way, check out what will be a great game this Friday at 7pm (Penncrest) to see who will win the bragging rights of Media.

  1. The game was classic Friday Night Lights game. Both bands played great half time shows entertaining the crowd of over 3,000 people at Lou Scott Field. It was great to see so many students, parents, teachers and alum at the game on both sides of the field. It was a special night for the Media area and we are very fortunate to have 2 high schools battle it out for bragging rights for another year. There is no better place to be on a Friday night than a HS football game. There are several Penncrest players who are D1 recruits adding to the high quality football that is played there.
