Clarion U. football opens
PITTSBURGH — Playing at Highmark Stadium in downtown Pittsburgh Saturday at 1 p.m., the Clarion University Golden Eagles football team takes on PSAC rival Shippensburg.
While the Golden Eagles, coming off a 1-10 season, were picked to finish seventh in the PSAC-West, the Red Raiders were the No. 2 team in the PSAC-East as they went 19-2 last year and earned a berth in the NCAA Division II playoffs before losing in the first round to PSAC-East rival West Chester, which is ranked No. 1 in the division going into the season.
It’s the 57th meeting between the teams and Clarion has lost 11 straight games to the Red Raiders dating back to their last win in 2000.
Golden Eagles head coach Chris Weibel enters his fourth season at his alma mater.
D9 and Kane native Keaton Rounsville is slated to start at right guard on offense while Brockway’s Jarrett Esposito is battling for the starting nod at punter and place-kicker.
