I think the best unfocused pix make the wings look unbranded. The strong central throat stripe and apparently long tail suggest Red-shouldered to me. Additionally, one is more likely to run across an SY RSHA in PA in early May than an SY BWHA, as most of those are still on migration in more southerly areas.

In this neck of the woods, we also have a snake called the Eastern Ribbon Snake.  They are very similar in appearance to Eastern Garter Snakes.  It could be one of those as well...

No, I don’t think Ribbonsnakes have that checkered pattern.
