Behind the scenes video: Sometimes, you can’t pronounce them all right

GTPA reporter Matt Goul, who came to the YDR and GameTimePA from Ohio, has entertained us throughout the years with his unique pronunciations of area cities, schools and athletes.

Which is why this recent GameTime717 outtake made me giggle …. as much for the blatant name error but also for Steve Navaroli’s faux outrage.

Sunday Spotlight: Two-minute drill Q&A with Dallastown’s Justin Tindull

TindullAt 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, it is hard to call Dallastown’s Justin Tindull a kid. Yet, the Wildcats senior isn’t even the biggest player on his team.

However Tindull’s personality shines through and we caught up to the lineman at the YAIAA media day and asked him some questions:

What is a large Least favorite practice drill: Bird dogs. … You have to do it eventually, but it’s pretty boring.

Who would play you in a movie about your life: I would like Will Smith, but he’s pretty skinny. I’d probably go with Terry Crews.

The one player on your team that you wouldn’t want to mess with: Probably say Zaire (Willis), just because of the sheer size of him.

Pregame ritual: Me and Tray Noye used to give each other a pregame punch. We would punch each other in the stomach … I don’t think that worked out that well.

There was no movement in the YAIAA football power rankings after Week 1, hence the hiatus last week. However, much has changed since then with shakeups throughout the league in this young season.

Let’s dive into it:

1. Dallastown (2-0, previously ranked: 5) – Perhaps the Wildcats were a little underrated coming into Week 1. Defensively and in regards to their running game, they looked strong. The question was, how would they overcome the loss of a strong senior class that led last year’s team to a district semifinal, the furthest Dallastown had been in school history. So far, this senior class has made its own impact. Look to last week’s 21-20 win at West York.

2. Bermudian Springs (2-0, PR: 2) – No shame in being No. 2 here. The Eagles are as legit of a team as you will find in District 3. The Eagles have posted a YAIAA-best 689 yards rushing through the first two weeks. They also have been as stingy as they come: 13 points and 244 total yards allowed are both the fewest in the 23-team league.

Before we dive into this week’s picks, let’s look at how we got here.

Lyzz and Matt are tied at 28 correct predictions. In Week 1, Lyzz went out on a limb as the only staffer to pick Delone and the only one to pick York County Tech, which both lost. She also picked Fairfield in a matchup with Newport that split our staffers down the middle. Matt went with Newport and gained another point on her, as he finished at the front of the pack at 15-4.

Sunday Spotlight: Two-minute drill Q&A with William Penn’s Lasmir Mitchell

Lasmir Mitchell, William Penn. (Jessica Sprenkle — Daily Record/Sunday News)

A defensive captain on the William Penn football team, linebacker Lasmir Mitchell shared these details about the Bearcats in 2014 during this summer’s YAIAA media day:

The one player on your team you wouldn’t want to face: Jacob Whitfield. He’s our biggest lineman, and when he gets mad he’s pretty hard to stop.

Your least favorite practice drill: The open-field tackling because linebacker, as you know, we like to fill gaps, not tackle fast running backs and receivers in the open field.

The best nickname on the team: Darren Stephens. We call him “Junior,” “Mo,” all types of stuff. We just call him five different nicknames.

Your worst sport: There’s a lot of them. I’m going to say Ultimate Frisbee … tennis. All types of stuff like that. I’ve tried all of them before in gym class, and I suck at them.

Favorite YAIAA stadium, other than your own: Spring Grove. It gets a little foggy around that time of the year, but it’s a nice field.
