Central York vs York High football

One could argue that over the past few seasons, Khalid Dorsey was the heart and soul of the York High football team.

He was one of the team’s most important players during a period when the program went through some tumultuous seasons and one great turnaround. After playing for Bearcats teams that went 1-19 through his first two varsity seasons, Dorsey helped build York High into a 9-2 team this year, including earning a share of the York-Adams League Division I title, while also qualifying for the District 3 Class 5-A playoffs.

 Around the rest of District 3 and all of Pennsylvania, high school football is still being played.

It’ll be that way well into December.

After a disappointing showing in the first weekend of the District 3 playoffs, football around the York-Adams League has come to an end.

YORK DISPATCH STAFF REPORTCentral York vs York High football

It wasn’t the way the York High Bearcats wanted the season to end.

After the most stunning one-season turnaround in the history of York-Adams League football, the Bearcats certainly didn’t want to go out with a 56-7 loss to Gov. Mifflin in the first round of the District 3 Class 5-A playoffs on Friday night, Nov. 10.

Still, that’s exactly what happened.

To make room for Beatty on the roster, the Eagles released Taylor Hart, a converted defensive tackle who was trying to make it in the NFL as an offensive tackle.

York Catholic vs Newport in District 3, Class 2-A Championship

I’m writing this column on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 12, the day after the high school football season for the York-Adams League came to an end.

It shouldn’t be this way. Even for the Y-A League, it usually isn’t this way.

A year ago, football around the league ended the Friday before Thanksgiving. Still not great, but more respectable.
