Justin Criado profiles the Springdale football team.
"Springdale coach Dave Leasure and his Dynamo players still read newspapers.
This past August, when the annual preseason predictions were making the rounds, they read about how they were supposed to finish in the Class A Eastern Conference cellar, nowhere near the WPIAL playoffs.
"Sure we did. We have about five or six articles posted in our weight room with the preseason predictions and all the articles that didn't mention Springdale even though we've had a lot of success here since 2002," Leasure said. "The expectation on the outside was we were going to go 2-7 or 3-6 and start the downward spiral of Springdale football.""
