Varsity Kickoff Countdown is a daily series on the Varsity blog. It’s 26 days until the opening night of the high school football season on Friday, Aug. 29:

Number of the day: 26

That’s the number years since the inaugural PIAA football playoffs were held.

The original four title games were held at sites throughout the state, with the Class A championship contested at Shippensburg University’s Seth Grove Stadium. That historic game saw the Camp Hill Lions beat the Cambridge Springs Blue Devils 18-7.

Cambridge Springs not only became the first District 10 program to reach a PIAA final, but remain the only Crawford County football team to advance that far.
