The punt return, a 57-yarder, occurred with 7:07 remaining in the fourth. And that was how he zoomed, like a 707.
"On the first couple punts, I noticed they weren't getting downfield," Bier said. "I didn't need to fair catch it. When that one came to me, I knew I had a chance to return it. I made a couple guys miss and got in."
On offense, Bier lines up at wide receiver. He plays free safety on defense while also returning, of course, and by the end of every game he's pretty tired. He's feelin' it at the end of each practice, too, mostly because the Patriots routinely dress about 30 players.
"As captains, we go around school and try to talk kids into playing," Bier said. "Some kids say they'll be out there, but then they never show up to get their pads. Others show up for a couple days, then quit. We had a lot of kids who made it through spring workouts, but didn't continue from there.
"The last couple seasons we haven't put together a lot of victories. I guess some people don't want to work hard for a team that maybe won't wind up as a winner.
"The hard part of the numbers thing is that you don't get a good look from the scout team."
Bier's primary sport is baseball - he'll start at third base or shortstop, depending on who's pitching - but he's not disappearing from the gridiron. "Football is different from every other sport," he said. "It's tough, definitely. But when you're out there on Friday or Saturday night, you really realize why you love it."
Bier also posted one catch for 27 yards and made a block that helped spring Ryan Boornazian, a just-converted lineman, for a 25-yard score. Also, he enjoyed watching the Patriots tally two TDs in the final 11 seconds of the first half. After Sal Bello hit Evan Harvey for a 15-yard score, C-E failed to grasp a bouncing kickoff and Joey Rodden recovered on the 17 at 3.9. Jake Keczik caught a tipped pass for an immediate TD.
Shawn Springs (14 carries for 62 yards) and Boornazian (8-57) ran for one TD apiece while Bello passed 6-for-10 for 89 yards and those two quick progressions.
Bier, who lives in Lafayette Hill, figures he wants a job in sports medicine or business. Oh, wait. Maybe he'll become a dentist.
"I have a couple friends whose dads are dentists," he said. "Seems like a cool job . . . And you get a lot of money."
