Dan Merkel prepares for third year as Allentown starting QB

2018 started off hot for Allentown. The Redbirds opened up with a three game win streak before dropping three in a row to end the season 4-5 under Coach Jay Graber. Jason Lackenmeyer enters 2019 as A-Town’s new Head Coach and despite having some inexperienced talent at the varsity level he has two year starter Dan Merkel under center… Last season the Junior quarterback threw for 1,429 yards with 8 touchdowns and rushed for 844 yards and 6 TD’s.

JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez stopped by training camp for the latest:
