Central Dauphin beats Manheim TWP 31-9 in season opener

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Glen McNamee earned his 100th win as Central Dauphin’s head coach in the team’s 31-9 win over Manheim Township. The season home opener is the last game played for the Rams since losing the District III title game to Cumberland Valley in a 7 overtime classic.

This was the first game for the Rams and Streaks as 6-A schools following reclassification.

Micah Parsons, the junior and Penn State verbal commit, made more plays offensively than at his natural position as a defensive end. An 8 yard touchdown run was the first for the Rams this season. Parsons was busy throughout the day, with September 1st being the first day college coaches can reach out to players they intend to recruit. The recruiting landscape has changed with social media. Parson said over 40 coaches reached out to him through phone calls, DMs and text messages.

“I don’t plan on decommitting any time soon. I’m waiting to see how my year goes and how Penn State’s year goes, and I’m also taking all 5 of my official visits.”

Among the many coaches to reach out to Parsons was Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who Parsons says followed him on Twitter and sent him a direct message.
