Swift and Strong . . . 
   On Oct. 22, 2016 (2 p.m. start), St. Joseph's Prep visited La S Salle for a Catholic Red game at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High. The Prep rolled to a 63-35 victory and thus clinched the CL Red championship (at 5-0) with one game remaining.
   This was the first time since 1960 that a CL title (overall back then, won by La Salle at 8-0-1) was decided only by regular season play. CL officials made the switch because the Red and Blue divisions would be including teams from multiple classifications.
  Senior RB D'Andre Swift, a 5-11, 210-pound Georgia commit with outrageous speed and strength, fueled this win with seven total TDs and six on the ground; both efforts tied CL records. He rushed 19 times for 275 yards and caught three passes for 21. Swift's top five runs went for 75, 62, 33, 31 and 21 yards. His grunts were center Mack Grey, guards Jackson Evans and Carter Lynch and tackles Sal Cinaglia and Taron Hampton while tight end Jack Crossed also provided major blocking help.
  The complete boxscore is below. All stats were compiled by Ed "Huck" Palmer. Thanks!
  One last thing . . . The game lasted 2 hours, 57 minutes.
