Here's the latest installment of Mike White's High School Football Notebook. Click here to read the story.
"Central Catholic's defense likes to call itself the "Chain Gang." For one of the Vikings' standout defensive players, a chain reaction of events is leading to a probable future in college football.
The more Central Catholic wins, the more games they play. The more games the Vikings play, the better linebacker Niko Thorpe performs. The better Thorpe performs, the more college coaches are noticing.
In the past few weeks, Thorpe has taken his game to its highest level and he also has received scholarship offers from Lafayette and Stony Brook, two NCAA Division I-AA programs. Also in the past few weeks, Temple, Villanova and Georgetown have stepped up their recruiting of Thorpe.
Thorpe and Central Catholic will play St. Joseph's Prep in the PIAA Class AAAA championship game Saturday in Hershey against St. Joseph's."
