Somerton Youth Organization is a private PA non-profit that has been encouraging youth development by providing opportunities for personal and athletic growth since 1955.

Coach Ed McArdle Honored at Little Guys Banquet
Congratulations to long-time football coach Ed McArdle on his induction into the Little Guys Football Conference Hall of Fame on Saturday, December 7, 2013. Coach Ed has been serving the Somerton community as a Somerton Youth Organization mentor and football, basketball, and baseball coach for over 20 years. In addition, Coach Ed has been a volunteer on the Board of the Directors of the Little Guys Conference for many years.
This recognition of Coach Ed's dedication to youth sports and tireless efforts at not only teaching the skills needed to excel at sports, but molding the character of every child he has coached was well-deserved.
Congratulations again to Coach Ed McArdle and the McArdle family.
