The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association has decided to examines a couple of proposals that would reduce the high school football season from 16 weeks to 15.

The PIAA board of directors will look at two proposals at its next meeting in July that would shorten the season.  One proposal involves the merging of some of the smaller districts into sub-regions; the other would move district winners directly into the state tournament.

Harrisburg school officials have hired Calvin Everett, a 1998 Cougar alum, as its new head football coach to replace George Chaump.

Everett, who played at Florida A&M and Millersville after graduation, served at Chaump's assistant for three years.  Chaump left Harrisburg after eight years and a 62-29 record.

The 32-year old Everett is best known as holding the record for the longest Cougar run from the line of scrimmage...a 99-yard TD run against Chambersburg.

The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports that Everett is excited to become a head coach at such a young age.
