The Lackawanna Trail Lions played their first scrimmage game of the season under their new head coach Rob Dermer, on Saturday August 16. The Lions took on the North Pocono Trojans, the school where Coach Dermer acted as Freshman head coach last season before coming to Trail. Also, making his debut as a Lion on Saturday was quarterback Matt Aten. Aten came on to the team as a freshman and was named starting quarterback earlier this month. The coach says Aten is fitting into the role nicely and showing a lot of skill out on the field. Trail will have another scrimmage Friday, August 22 at Wilkes-Barre Coughlin at 6 p.m., to prepare for the regular season which will kickoff Friday, August 29 against the Lakeland Chiefs at Lakeland.
