K-Kids Leaders Trying To Make History
It’s been 15 years since Northampton High School won a District XI Championship. Three upcoming seniors are trying to break that streak. Caden Henritzy (RB), Tristen Pinnock (Slot, CB), and Colby Reph (C, DT) are players who have been making an impact at Northampton for multiple years.
Caden Henritzy is one of those players that truly believes in being “bought into the process.” He is a very hardworking back who looks to continue putting up big numbers for Northampton. In the past two seasons, he has put up over 2,000 all-purpose yards. When talking about some of his favorite memory’s playing football he continued to bring up this specific one. “Playing Whitehall, and scoring 4 touchdowns on them, it was also an honor being named District XI player of the game, as well as Pennsylvania Player Of The Week.” Henritzy will be trying to repeat as the conference’s Offensive MVP next season, as he hopes to lead Northampton to the District Championship game.
Tristen Pinnock has been playing on Friday nights since the age of 14. He prides himself on “doing anything for my teammates.” Pinnock is a very committed athlete. He plays 3 varsity sports, Football, Basketball, and runs track. Last season he had over 700 all-purpose yards on offense, and on the defensive side of the ball picked off 5 passes. When asking him about his biggest role model he said “It’s my brother, I mean since I was a little kid I’ve been looking up to him. He played college football, and that makes me want to play at the next level even more.” Tristen is the back-to-back Turkey Day MVP for Northampton after his 5 Touchdown performance this past year.
Colby Reph has been a force on the O-line for the past two seasons. The 6’1, 290 lb lineman says his biggest goal this season is to “win a District XI Championship.” Colby was named 2nd Team EPC North for both the Center position and Defensive Tackle. He had 62 tackles, 13.5 TFLs, 2 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles. The rising senior is looking to be dominant again during his senior campaign. Will it be enough for the K-Kids?
