West Branch Football is Back!

West+Branch+Football+2020

C. Peterson

This year, the West Branch football team, as well as other WB sports, will be noticing some massive changes to this year’s season due to COVID-19. Not only will the players be facing changes, but the spectators will be as well. Spectators will only be allowed to attend when the school district permits and must abide by rules and regulations set up by the Pennsylvania State Government. These rules state that there will not be more than 250 people in a gathering, social distancing and mask-wearing will also be practiced.

The football team will be kicking off the season today, September 11th, with an away game at Juniata Valley. The game will be live-streamed on YouTube here. The live stream starts at 7:00 p.m.

With the season starting later and the lack of two-a-days, the Warriors have had to work a lot harder to become a playable standard. The West Branch football team will have nine returning seniors: Camden Kopchik, Sarah Betts, Will Herring, Kayden Grubbs, Noah Hoffner, Kyle Moore, Ethan Yingling, Tanner Rice, and Jacob Martin. Seventeen letter-winners will also be returning: Camden Kopchik, Sarah Betts, Will Herring, Kayden Grubbs, Noah Hoffner, Kyle Moore, Ethan Yingling, Tanner Rice, Derek Browne, Nathan McDonald, Owen Graham, Jackson Croyle, Parker Johnson, Kyle Kolesar, Billy Bumbarger, Chase Evans, and Jacob Martin.

West Branch is looking forward to a successful football season!
