CATAWISSA R.R. — Back in 2006, Southern Columbia was trying to become the first school in PIAA history to capture five consecutive state championships. Its talented roster was nearly complete, led by what at the time was perhaps the top senior class to ever come through Jim Roth’s prodigious program, but there was one position left to fill.
“Kickers can be overlooked at times, but in high school you see it all the time where some teams struggle to find one that can get the job done,” said the head coach of the Tigers. “It’s an element of the game that we just don’t have to be concerned about since this started. The option to go for two does not come up very often. We have scored a lot, so our kickers get many attempts and I think it helps their consistency.”
