The odds weren’t in Thomas Merkle’s favor when he began this season as a freshman at Kenyon College.

Going into fall camp leading up to his first year with the Lords, the York Suburban High School graduate had to try to beat out two junior quarterbacks, who were with the program for the two prior seasons. However, working in his favor was the fact that, like him, neither had ever started a college game. So, all Merkle could do was compete and let his talent determine his fate.

Despite his inexperience at the NCAA Division III level and his lack of size, the 5-foot, 10-inch Merkle always possessed a strong arm and loads of confidence.

RYAN VANDERSLOOT, 505-5403/@yaiaascoresGettysburg vs Susquehannock boys' soccer

GLEN ROCK — Ever since Gettysburg joined the York-Adams League in 2014, the boys’ soccer rivalry with Susquehannock has been intense.

It didn’t lessen any on Tuesday evening.

In game that totaled 31 fouls between the two clubs, it was clear there was respect, but little love for each other. For the first time all season, the York County Warriors found themselves trailing, courtesy of a Logan Carbaugh goal for the visitors just under 10 minutes into play.

With Coach Brett Maxwell’s team in the unusual position of playing catch-up, the emotions sometimes got a little heated.
