There was no secret entering the 2010 high school football season that opposing teams were going to focus on trying to stop Northern Lehigh's Cody Remaley from repeating any performance he had against them last year.

Wilson, last week's foe, would have been glad to have the Bulldog scatback repeat his performance against it. Remaley carried the ball just 12 times for 17 yards, but did manage a touchdown on a kickoff return in a 35-7 loss to the Warriors.

Well Week 2 is in the books and I'm still in the basement. Thanks to Thursday night's Panther Valley at Lehighton matchup, I've had one less day to prepare for this week and hopefully it will be a good thing.

Every year it seems that there is a team or two who gives me some trouble and this year, Tamaqua, Lehighton and Palmerton have all given me nightmares thus far. Hopefully this week things will change for the better.

So here goes:

Through the first two weeks of the season, the Jim Thorpe football team has relied heavily on its running game.

The Olympians have run the ball a total of 87 times for 427 yards in their victories over Tamaqua and Reading Central Catholic while attempting to pass on just 15 occasions.

It is easy to see from the numbers that Mark Rosenberger's first priority is to establish a running attack. The Jim Thorpe head coach will attempt to do the same this week. Except this time around it will be much, much tougher.

Panther Valley at Lehighton

Thursday, 7 p.m.

Records: Panther Valley 0-2 (0-1 Anthracite Football League), Lehighton 1-1 (0-0 Mountain Valley Conference)

Panther Valley's offense needs to ... Protect the football and sustain drives. The Panthers need to be able to run the ball against Lehighton's 3-5-3 base defense. The Panthers offense also needs to get reacquainted with having Joe Revell under center, as last week's starting quarterback, Lukas Damian, suffered a leg injury and is out for the season.
