KEYS TO THE GAME 1. Establish the run
Williamsport will try to get Potts going early. That’s no secret. But for State College to have some success the Little Lions need to be able to run the ball.
2. Finish the job
State College must finish its tackles. The Millionaires have had success picking up yards after initial contact.
3. Hold your ground
State College needs to find a way to contain Hankins. He can beat you from the pocket and on the run.
Williamsport’s Isaiah Hawkins (22) tries to break away from Valley West’s Quaid Braddy (42).
