During the winter sports season at Northeast High School, one isn’t likely to find one of the school’s most winningest coaches anywhere on campus.
We’ve officially entered the third week of March, and wouldn’t you know it: there’s still snow covering lawns and car windshields throughout the Delaware Valley.

Scoreless through four full quarters, it almost seemed appropriate that the newest chapter of the ancient Northeast-Central Thanksgiving rivalry would be decided, in part, by a coin toss.

Asked what would be of most importance heading into Friday night’s game at Northeast High School, Frankford senior quarterback Marquise Poston responded with a snappy answer to an arguably stupid question.
