A returning quarterback may mean there’s more run-pass balance from Interboro’s offense this season. But it doesn’t mean that for coach Steve Lennox, third down is automatically a passing down, even as Jared Dellipriscoli has matured under center.That’s less a commentary on his signal-caller than it is praise for option No. 1 on the third-down call sheet. Six times, Interboro gave Mike Moore the ball on third down in Friday’s season-opener against Strath Haven. Six times, Interboro’s big back plowed over and through defenders to move the chains.
Moore was the difference in a sloppy and error-prone Week 1 contest, his 178 yards on 29 carries powering Interboro to a 23-15 win in the Delaware County Athletes Hall of Fame Kickoff Classic.
“I know just knowing my coach, he’s going to keep on doing it,” Moore said of the third-down reps. “But I hope the whole season plays out like it did tonight.”
