This upcoming Friday night the North Hills Indians varsity football team will take on the Pine Richland Rams at Pine Richland at 7:30 pm.

Both the Indians and Rams are 3-0 in section play and are tied with Central Catholic for the top spot in the northern eight conference. Pine Richland’s high powered offense will meet North Hill’s mighty defense, which has only let up 29 points in its first three section games.

The Ram’s offense is led by their quarterback, Ben Dinucci, who has recently committed to Penn University and is currently the leading passer in the WPIAL this year. North Hills has a plethora of offensive threats that will keep the Rams on their toes. Receivers Kindhal Taylor, Brandon Wagner, and Andrew Bly have all had very large performances so far this year.

The rivalry this Friday night extends beyond the field, as two of our own physical education teachers will contend for the win. North Hills’ coach, Pat Carey, and Pine Richland’s coach, Eric Kasperowicz, used to coach together at North Hills until Kasperowicz took over the head coaching position at Pine Richland. Come support your football team and show some school pride at Pine Richland this Friday night.
