Surprising Pennsbury. What’s up with these Falcons? Don’t they understand that they’re not supposed to be this good?

Pennsbury doesn’t have a player taller than 6-foot-6. And of the players the Falcons do have, none honed their skills on the blacktops of Philadelphia or Chester.

But the road to the PIAA Class AAAA state might still go through Pennsbury.

The Falcons return four starters from a team that made its first Class AAAA state semifinal appearance in school history.

A lot of Pennsbury’s success will depend on West Virginia signee Dalton Pepper. The 6-5 senior guard is one of the nation’s top 150 players in the Class of 2009, according to rivals.com.

A four-year starter, Pepper is 20 points shy of breaking the Pennsbury boys’ career scoring record of 1,552 set by Jason Vegotksy in 2005.
