CAMP HILL, Pa (WHTM) — One of the smallest schools within their division, sometimes Camp Hill might be overlooked. But this is a team that is just two seasons removed from winning a district championship, defeating York Catholic in 2020.
They finished last season 4-6, missing the playoffs, but the chip on their shoulder always stays put.
“We all agree that we love it because when we win a game, it’s like the most exciting thing,” said Tommy Corbin, a junior wide receiver for Camp Hill. “We are like, ‘we are smaller than you, but we are better than you.’ So we are stronger and we push harder.”
A fifth place finish in Class 2A District lll last season, the Lions just barely missed out on the playoffs.
“I think a lot of the steps to get there have already been placed down. We went to a Millersville camp, we’ve already pretty much had three-a-days for three straight days. We are so much further ahead. I can’t even describe how much further ahead we are this year than we were last year at this time,” said senior wide receiver Michael Shartle.
Camp Hill begins the 2022 season at home as they open up against Newport on Aug. 26.
