Members of Team Pennsylvania Making Early Season Impact

By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

Erratic weather has played havoc with schedules during the first two weeks of the high school season.  Most teams have managed to play three or four games while others have struggled to begin their schedule.  Games were once again postponed statewide on Thursday due to the latest round of poor weather.

With no game action to report on from yesterday, today we take a look at some early season results for members of Team Pennsylvania.  The 17 player roster for this year's PBR Future Games was compiled over the past several months and will make the trek to Indianapolis the first week of August to participate with top prospects across the country.  This year's roster is comprised of 10 sophomores and seven freshmen.  Following is a look at some of the top performances by members of Team Pennsylvania in the early stages of the spring.
