The Palisades football team had a resurgent season in 2012. Getting off the mat wasn't easy but the Pirates were back among the top teams in the Colonial League. The goal this year is to stay there. The Pirates have several guys back from last year which was year one under head coach Kevin Ronalds. As well as year one went, year two could be even better and their expectations are certainly higher. Partly because they were able to hit the ground running which they couldn't do a year ago.
