You have to go all the way back to the 2006 season to find the last time a school other than West York or Dover won the York-Adams League Division II football crown.
In that year, it was Susquehannock. It’s unlikely that the Warriors will be the team to spoil that trend in 2015. While the Eagles and Bulldogs have combined to win the past eight Division II crowns, six of those have gone to West York, including four straight from 2007-10 and then most recently, last year.
Prediction: When Snelbaker was introduced as the new head coach for Dover back in April, he said the community couldn’t have been more thrilled to have him come home.
Just imagine how thrilled the Eagle faithful may be come November when he returns the program back to the top of Division II. Dover is the pick to win the division this year because it has one of the deepest rosters in the division and arguably one of the best in-game coaches in the entire league. When you put two and two together, Snelbaker should get the most out of his players and they should reward him on Friday nights with win after win and eventually, a Division II crown.
Full standings prediction: 1. Dover; 2. York Suburban; 3. West York; 4. Gettysburg; 5. Eastern York; 6. Susquehannock; 7. Kennard-Dale
