The amazing season for Oil City (Pa.) running back Ethen Knox came to an end Friday with a 41-28 loss to Slippery Rock in the first round of the playoffs. With 353 yards on 39 carries in his final game, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior finished his historic campaign with 3,705 yards on 385 carries in just 10 games. His Oilers finished 7-3.
Time to put his incredible rushing numbers into perspective.
* The 3,705 yards rank No. 4 all-time in Pennsylvania behind Dominick Bragalone of South Williamsport with 4,704, Zack Barkett of Schuylkill Haven with 4,187 and Austin Scott of Parkland (Allentown) with 3,846. It's also No. 23 all-time nationally behind No. 22 DeShawn Smith of Nature Coast Tech (Brooksville, Fla.) with 3,715 yards.
* In addition, his rushing yardage total of 3,705 yards are the most yards ever gained in high school history in a 10-game season. The previous record was 3,690 by W.C. Roberts of McMinnville (Tenn.), now known as Warren County, set in 1928.
* The 370.5 yards per game is believed to be the second-highest average behind John Giannantonio of Netcong (N.J.), who reportedly had over 3,000 yards in eight games in 1950. While the exact total is not known, the average would be over 375 yards per game.
* Eight games of 300 yards or more yards ranks third all-time behind Tyler Ebell of Ventura (Calif.), who had 10, and Bragalone, who had nine. Henry also had eight. It is not known how many 300-yard games Roberts or Giannantonio had.
* The 38.5 carries per game rank second all-time to Kevin Stanfield of Coffee (Ala.), who had 43.2 carries in 1978, according to the Alabama High School Athletic Association.

St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, an animal shelter that has locations in Central and North Jersey, will no longer provide animal control services for the 19 New Jersey municipalities it serves, come the end of the year.
The shelter currently operates animal welfare campuses in Madison and North Branch, and has provided animal control and rescue services for lost or found pets to surrounding municipalities for decades.
Due to inadequate financial support and risk of bankruptcy, on Dec. 31, St. Hubert’s will stop providing animal control services in New Jersey once its contracts end, according to St. Hubert’s Executive Director Tiffany Barrow.
“We have been trying to figure out how to sustain the level of service that we know our communities deserve without the financial support that municipalities should provide for that level of services,” Barrow said in a statement provided to NJ Advance Media.
Like many other animal shelters across the nation facing chronic underfunding, St. Hubert’s relies on private donors, grants and foundations to fulfill its mission and services. The funding that St. Hubert’s receives through contracts isn’t enough for them to continue providing contracted animal control services, said Barrow.
“We’re currently paying $2 in services for every $1 we are provided through contract funds, and this model would essentially bankrupt us long term. This is a systemic problem, as animal services have been historically underfunded,” said Barrow.
Though they will no longer provide these services, St. Hubert’s New Jersey locations will continue to operate as usual, maintaining adoption services at both campuses, a training and behavior center in Madison, and other community programs including free pet food banks, free vaccination clinics and spay or neuter assistance.
The municipalities that will be impacted once the animal control contracts conclude are: Alexandria Township, Branchburg Township, Florham Park, Frenchtown Borough, Hampton Borough, High Bridge Borough, Hillside, Holland Township, Irvington, Lambertville, Madison Borough, Maplewood, Milford Borough, Netcong Borough, Somerville, South Bound Brook, South Orange Village Township, Watchung and West Amwell Township.
Many of the impacted municipalities, including Alexandria Township, Watchung and West Amwell Township, are already seeking proposals and bids for new animal control agencies and groups to replace St. Hubert’s before the end of the year.
St. Hubert’s is working with the 19 municipalities to help them transition to new animal control contractors, said Barrow.
As for St. Hubert’s being able to find animals in need for its own shelters, it plans to do this by working more closely with its shelter partners to rescue and transfer animals in New Jersey and allocate more funding to its community programs.

Suspended by the state office, locked out of their building and out of money, members of Morris County's oldest Veterans of Foreign Wars post voted on Tuesday to consider dissolution and the surrender of their charter.
But not so fast, said state officials, who informed Netcong Post 2347 that its suspension last week precludes any actions − including a decision for their post to stand down.
"They can't do that," said VFW state Adjutant Ken Hagemann. "They are under the control of the state department commandeer through the administrative committee. They can't do anything. They can't even hold the meeting they held yesterday."
But post Commander Martin Bischoff said that with his members locked out of their deteriorating building and without a canteen license, which allows the post to sell liquor, he sees no way to continue.
"Suspending us and closing our canteen choked our last trickle of income," said Bischoff, a retired Army colonel. "My poor post, after 70 years what a way to go out, by our own guns."
Hagemann was more upbeat about the possibilities to revive Netcong and other posts suspended this month for administrative and other infractions by the state VFW office. Denville Post 2519 and Woodbridge Post 4410 quickly resolved their largely administrative issues and are no longer under suspension. But 10 others remain shuttered and under state control with their futures in limbo.
Hagemann said the state office will send a letter to Netcong members informing them their meeting "was unauthorized and any action taken there is null and void."
"We're going to try and revitalize the post," Hagemann said. "We want to make these posts successful. We don't want to close them down."
Hagemann said he met Tuesday with a Camden County post that had not met since the beginning of the COVID pandemic.
"A lot of members transferred out because they weren't doing much," he said. "But a few people showed up who want to keep it going. We're going to help them move forward."
Hagemann said the state office did grant Netcong an operating exception to allow hall rentals in hopes of generating income. But Bischoff said rentals are not currently practical after a neighboring business prohibited VFW parking in its lot, which the hall had used for decades.
Bischoff said Netcong is down to about 62 members, but many are older veterans, some of whom live in Florida and rarely participate.
"I'm one of the younger guys, and I'm 60, which [the state] beats us up about," he said. "It's hard right now attracting new members."
"It hurts to see a VFW Post close in my legislative district," said state Assemblyman Brian Bergen, a West Point graduate who serves as commander of the Denville post. "As their Assemblyman and their VFW District 10 junior vice commander, I will actively support the members of Post 2347 in finding a new post to call home."
Bischoff said he called a special meeting to vote on the dissolution on Aug. 23. Hagemann said the state office will schedule its own meeting with members.
If Bischoff will not cooperate, "he'll have to be moved aside," Hagemann said.

Following last week’s report about the New Jersey VFW office suspending chapters statewide for various infractions, the struggling Netcong chapter, Morris County’s oldest, unanimously votes to begin dissolution.
The VFW has around 1.5 million members, a drop of a million from 1992. The average age is 67, with 400,000 members over 80. The largest organization of veterans' clubs, the American Legion, has two million members, down from 3.3 million in 1946.
America’s largest and oldest war veterans’ organization began its new membership year earlier this month with almost 1.165 million members, a million less than its peak in 1992, yet significant nonetheless, according to VFW National Commander B.J. Lawrence, who attributes the growth to the organization being more visible on the national scene as well as in more than 6,000 communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, four U.S. territories, and 11 foreign countries.
