Interboro coach Steve Lennox said he would win.

And he kept his word.

A year ago, Lennox took Dickinson High (Del.) to a 12-0 record, the Flight B championship and the No. 1 ranking in the state in football. In Lennox's 11 seasons, Dickinson compiled an 84-26-1 mark and was 47-2-1 in the last five years with three appearances in the state final.

Then, Lennox decided to make sort of a homecoming by leaving the Delaware school and going to Interboro, near where he grew up. Some people said he couldn't win as regularly at Interboro. Lennox didn't want to hear any of that.

Lennox will coach the Bucs in the District 1 Class AAA championship game, against Strath Haven (10-0), on Friday night at Strath Haven.

"We have a great group of kids who are very selfless," Lennox said. ''They didn't care who got the highlights each week, as long as we won.

"I also want to thank the community and fans for being so supportive all year. It's just a great feeling."

The Bucs, who are 8-1 overall, clinched the Del-Val League American Conference title outright when Academy Park lost to Sun Valley on Saturday.

"This is a great opportunity for us," said Interboro senior running back and co-captain Jim Raynor. "After watching them (Strath Haven) Friday night, we know that Strath Haven is a great team."

This past season was almost like a dream for Raynor, who had been a member of the Bucs' American Conference champions when he was a sophomore.

"In my sophomore year, I got a chance to play because someone got injured," Raynor said. "Last year, we struggled (3-8 record) and it hurt. This year, it's just great."

Raynor visited Penn over the weekend and hopes to play for the Quakers next year. He also has heard from several other schools, including Maine and Connecticut. Before he thinks about a college for next year, he has two games on his mind - against Strath Haven on Friday and the season finale against Ridley on Thanksgiving Day.
