EsaternPAFootball.com posted a "District 1 and 12 Report" by Armand Vanore today. District 12 looks to be dominated by the usual suspects, LaSalle & the Prep in AAAA and Archbishop Wood in AAA. The North Penn Knights play all three as non-conference games. Vanore also projects the Knights on top of the SOL Continental while at the same time giving a lot of pixels to Pennridge. Of course, last year the Pennridge loss kept the Knights out of the District 1 play-offs, due the 3 losses to the previously mentioned non-conference District 12 games. If the Knights can finish better than 0-3 during the first 3 weeks, it should put them in the play-offs as a very dangerous sleeper team from the bottom of the bracket.
It's still nice to remember the days when the Knights were winning all of their regular season games and near the top of the bracket. Speaking of former glory, I've heard that Andrew Stoll (North Penn class of '09) has returned to the Knights' fold as an assistant coach.

North Penn Knights 2013 Schedule
EasternPAFootball.com has the North Penn football schedule for this fall, starting with a scrimmage at PW on Saturday. I also found this article on the Channel 3 website that predicts better things for the Knights in 2013. Of course, as the article notes, North Penn's 3 non-league games are against the cream of the Catholic League. They will need to beat at least one of these teams, along with last years SOL Continental winner Pennridge, to get back in the playoffs.

Dick Beck talks about the 2013 North Penn Knights on EasternPAFootball.com. Sounds like they have good size on the o-line, but he doesn't say anything about speed, normally the difference maker for Dick Beck teams.
