Reigning Region 7 Champ State College Fields No Team In 2011

Though the PA ALB is in full swing, we wanted to pass along some unfortunate and rather unsettling news from PA's Region 7.  The defending region champion and longtime state power, State College, is not fielding a team this summer.


The shocking news comes after their manager was unable to return and many players left for neighboring AAU and other travel teams.  This means that this summer the well known Lions, who proudly wear the navy and blue of hometown Penn State, will not be vying for a regional title or state berth.  


State College, the 2001 PA state champs, have split their remaining players up amongst neighboring teams.  While it will be interesting to see how those teams fare in light of the situation, it is certainly alarming that such a prominent and productive team won't be playing the season.  As we've noted, several other teams have other lost their legion programs, at least for this year.  Those, however, are due mostly to waning interest and not a jump to another division of play.  Many of the players believe that AAU ball, which has been outlined here several times, offers them a better chance at playing in college.  The numbers and statistics certainly do not support that notion, however.


What's your take on this situation?
