A bro from the Philly area sent us in some pics of a high school team from Philly with a rich history, Springfield. The shots after the jump are from their first round game of the District playoffs. They played Owen J Roberts High School and won 9-3, which makes them 17-1 on the season. The Cougars play Hatboro-Horshem High School on Saturday in the next round.
The squad is not only stacked with talent, but also have top of the line gear. Make sure to check out their Maverik Maybachs, Nike uni’s, and Cascade helmets with a “Pride” decal on the back. And if you are wondering what “19064” on the backside of their shooting shirts means….it’s the Springfield zip code. Philly reps it hard!

Bergs, that’s what I was referring to. He was in net for Episcopal when Springfield trounced them.
Doc played at Episcopal Academy in PA not Springfield.
Penn State has always gotten great recruits in recent memory. I hope they start to pull it together with a new coach.

You think those Penn State recruits will stay?
