What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Throughout the course of the last 2 seasons, Brody McAndrew has proven to be a talented and dependable Quarterback, as well as a terrific leader of the team. I expect him to continue this during his senior year. We have a good nucleus of offensive lineman returning (Magdelinksas, Monaco, Soska), and feel good about the guys we are bringing in at the other spots. The tight end position will be filled by committee. Chris James will be back running the ball for us after an outstanding sophomore season (1361 yards). Chris has some depth behind him if he has to help us out as a defensive back. Fullback is another position we have depth in. While Hutchinson will be the starter, we have 2 or 3 other guys that have worked hard in the off-season and could be out there blocking for us. The wide receiver void left by last year’s graduating class should be filled by seniors Ian Sheehan and Dawson Obringer. In order for us to improve from last year, our offensive line will have to play with consistancy.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
Juniors Nik Soska and Kenny Monaco, along with senior Jake Ginsberg should anchor the defensive line. Linebackers that will be contributing are sophomore Greg Orlleski, junior John Hutchinson, and senior Dawson Obringer. Sophomore Safety Gavin O’Connor and senior Corner Ian Sheehan have looked good so far in the secondary. We are all new so we will have to improve on everything every week.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
Our team will be challenged very early with a very competitive non league schedule (North Penn, Pennridge, Downingtown West). The level of play on both sides of the line of scrimmage will determine the fate of those three games. The looming statistic from above is 0 returning starters on defense. While I do think we have some talented guys playing in there, they are going to have to play extremely hard to make up for their lack of experience.
