Dozens of Warrior Fans Travel to Philly to Watch Julian Campenni and UCONN
Family, friends, coaches, and former classmates met at the Linc in Philly to watch Jullian Campenni and his UConn Huskies defeat the Temple Owls. The Huskies, down 21-0 at half, made a remarkable comeback to win 28-21. Julian Campenni anchored the center of the Husky defensive line which stymied the Owls in the second half. Many say the Husky comeback was attributed to Coach Fanti leading the UConn cheering section. His thunderous voice--pegging the noise meter--could be heard echoing throughout the Linc--"UCONN"...."UCONN". Julian was able to meet with the Warrior faithful after the game before traveling back to Connecticut. Yeah, it was a little chilly, but well worth seeing number 90 in action.

Warrior Nation Travels to Bucknell to Support Nick Bartoli and Nick O'Brien
About 30 family members, coaches, former teammates, and Warrior fans traveled to Lewisburg on Saturday night to watch Nick Bartoli's Sacred Heart Pioneers play Nick O'Brien's Bucknell Bisons. Sophomore Nick Bartoli (#62) played the entire game at right guard. Freshman Nick O'Brien (#21) played on special teams and had a nice kickoff return to open the second half.
The policitcally correct Coach Spencer and Coach Fanti--wore both Bucknell and Sacred Heart T-Shirts. Coach Pizano called the signals at the grill during the tailgate, while Coaches Jason Speece and Ken Kopetchny coordinated the refreshments. Rarely do you see such teamwork in a coaching staff. Then when you think it's all about burgers and hot dogs--Coach Fanti pulls out a trick play--a porketta sandwich.
Bartoli's Pioneers' got the better of O'Brien's Bisons. Running a no-huddle offense, the Pioneers defeated the Bisons 16-0.
Defensive Back Nick O'Brien had 5 tackles for Bucknell to help the Bisons defeat Lehigh 48-10. O'Brien returned three kickoffs--the longest being a 40 yard return. O'Brien is seeing plenty of playing time as a true freshman.
Bucknell wins 3rd straight--O'Brien with 5 more tackles playing cornerback.
Message From President of Parents Association - Dan Resciniti
Please let me take this opportunity to dispel any misconceptions about the "peddling" of T-Shirts at Wyoming Area Football Games and T-shirts sales for Wyoming Area Football T-shirts via the use of social media networks on the Internet (with the exception of the Wyoming Area Football Official Website : www.wyomingareafootball.org).
1.) Only the T-shirts and apparel that are sold from the WAFPA Spirit Stand at the field, or at any sanctioned WA Football event (ie. Meet the Warriors, Night at the Races, etc...) will benefit "the program" and 2.) The Wyoming Area Football Parents Association will receive ABSOLUTELY ZERO funds from the sale of these items. Thank you
