The Salisbury Falcon football team is 2-2 on the season with wins coming against Catasauqua and Northwestern Lehigh. Learning a new offense, the Falcons were expected to experience a learning curve. However, the Falcons have already matched their win total from last year as head coach Andy Cerco seems encouraged by their play so far. Their losses came against Wilson and Bangor as they were competitive in both games, but just couldn’t pull it off in the end. This week, the Falcons take on powerhouse Notre Dame Green Pond, who ended up winning the league last year. I caught up with Junior lineman Daniel Jennings and asked him how practice went this week and he replied with, “We came in every day and worked hard, practice was crisp, and any mistakes we had were corrected.”
The Falcons will look to contain the passing attack as Notre Dame has an experienced quarterback with plenty of weapons at wideout and in the backfield. Jennings when asked what his expectations were for this week, responded with, “We are viewed as underdogs, and we like that, we’re gonna go out there and play hard, and we’ll see what happens.” Jennings is now in his second year starting on the Falcon offensive line.
Falcons feel the offensive and defensive line is considered a strength for Salisbury with captain Michael Killiri taking charge. The top performance so far this year includes a 167 yard, 3 touchdown performances from Timmy Buda in week one. The Falcons will look for that same production from Buda in week 5. Lastly, Dan Jennings explained that it has been an up and down season with high and low points. “We just have to keep pushing through; We’ll see if the falcons can pull off a win this week.”
