"They figure he was one of the men on the raid that strayed this way," Anna Rotz said of the unknown Confederate soldier's grave. The soldier was shot July 30, 1864, the same time that Confederate raiders were occupying and burning Chambersburg, Pa., about 16 miles to the east.

As the last chords of "Amazing Grace" fell away, Seiler began walking from player to player and coach to coach offering a few private words. Steel-High (5-1, 3-0) had just unleashed the passing of quarterback Jerel Lewis and the speed and athleticism of Sean Alexander and Austen Brown as the Rollers ran away from the Indians (1-5, 1-2)
