On August 25th the Explorers will open the season on the road in the annual showdown against North Penn. The upcoming season looks to be a bright one for the Explorers. With the return of quarterback Isaiah Jones La Salle looks to improve upon its PCL playoff loss last season. This early test vs. the North Penn Knights should be a good measuring stick for the season. In the Philadelphia Catholic League, the Explorers will be likely competing vs. St. Joes Prep and Archbishop Wood for the top spots in the league. Both of these teams are ranked nationally in the High School Football America’s preseason poll. Over the summer multiple players have picked up college offers for La Salle. On offense: WR Troy Holland, QB Isaiah Jones, TE Liam Trainer, and OL Colin Hirschmann. On Defense: DB Devin Smith, DL Garrett Zobel. If everyone remains healthy La Salle has a chance to challenge St. Joes Prep for the Catholic League Championship, and make a run deep into the state playoffs.
