| August 24, 2023


Eisenhower Knights

2023 Schedule

Head Coach – Jim Penley

2022 Season – 11-1

Key Players Lost – Benji Bauer (2067 rushing yards, 24 TD), (76 tackles, 3 sacks, 3 INT), Keegan Eckstrom (384 rushing yards),

Key Players Returning – Shawn Pascuzzi (1014 passing yards, 8 TD), (414 rushing yards, 8 TD), (32 tackles, 5 INT) – Tucker Lindell (598 rushing yards, 7 TD), (82 tackles), Kris Bunk (28 tackles, 5 sacks).

What to Expect – Eisenhower loses a 2000-yard back in Benji Bauer, among other starters – but with talented players like Tucker Lindell and Shawn Pascuzzi returning, the Knights shouldn’t have an issue contending for a District X crown.


Iroquois Braves

2023 -Schedule

Head Coach – Manny Johnson

2022 Season – 0-10

Key Players Lost – Michael Hoopsick, Andres Gonzalez, Sean Divins, entire line

Key Players Returning – Aidan Wodarski-Farley, Anthony Cimino, Derek Vactor, Anthony Theiss, Sam Kightlingerand Christian Krysiak

What to Expect – The only place is up for the Braves, who finished the 2022 season at 0-10, scoring only 61 points. I’d expect Iroquois to be more competitive in 2023.


Mercyhurst Prep Lakers

2023 Schedule

What to Expect – Mercyhurst Prep enters 2023 with a lot of talent back and will look to compete for a District X title. However, the Lakers must replace quarterback David Baham who threw for nearly 2000 yards and accounted for 29 total touchdowns.
