NEW OXFORD, Pa (WHTM) — Building a winning culture is never easy and there is no proven formula on how to do it, but New Oxford football has found a way.

The Colonials have made it to three straight district playoffs, the first time that has happened in school history, and proved they are a consistent force to be reckoned with in Class 5A. After a 6-4 finish last season, New Oxford was knocked out in the first round of the postseason by powerhouse Shippensburg, who was 10-0 at the time.

Now New Oxford has their eye on making it four in a row and making it farther.
