Geoff Giordano of APBA Football (a great resource for any APBA fan not just football buffs) on Facebook has posted a two-part series on thoughts from former APBA Journal editor and publisher Howard Ahlskog.
Some interesting stuff there… even hints on modifying the game for your football replay:
“We limited running backs and receivers to their long gains,” he asserted. “You give a guy who caught 70 passes and his long was 25 and the APBA game in those days — you throw to him long you get a 1 (and) it’s gone … 70 yards. No way. Some of these guys were 250-pound running backs.
Ahlskog doesn’t hold back on his thoughts on the game in his interview. Well worth the read.
Also, you can now find the Bridesburg APBA League on Facebook now! Brian Cavanaugh has created a Facebook page for the league which runs out of the Bridesburg Boys and Girls Club in the Philly area.
Brian has been uploading the team logos lately. Very fun!
