webshaheim10 15 14

Roller football is back.

After a tumultuous 1-4 start to its season, Steelton-Highspire's playoff hopes were hanging on a thread. Then last week, the Rollers claimed a potential season-saving win over Camp Hill on Cottage Hill, knocking the Lions down from their top spot in the District 3 Class A ratings.

The Rollers brought that same intensity with them to Elliotsburg on Friday, Oct. 10, crushing West Perry, 34-7.
Steel-High Coach Andrew Erby hopes the second straight win is just the start of a winning streak.

“We’re just getting ready,” Erby said. “We’re getting this group up to speed. They have been making progress.”
