Friday preview: Somerset basking in football success
A few more signs saying “You’ve entered Golden Eagles Territory” align the streets of Somerset these days. There are a couple more people wearing Somerset football T-shirts at the grocery store.

“We came out and played well,” Somerset coach Bob Landis said. “Our offense moved the ball, and you can’t ask more from your defense than to pitch a shutout.”
Somerset armed and ready for improvement
