The Warriors got off to a slow start at 2-2, but after that they sailed through the season with just two close games, a 15-10 win over Gateway and a 24-21 win over Moon twp in the WPIAL title game. They made quick work of Exeter Twp to advance to Hershey. The Warriors are a blue collar team that leans on you all game long. They have good size on both sides of the line. Make no mistake about it, this team earned their way to the 5A Title Game.
How they got to Hershey:
Wisconsin Commit, Running back Cade Yacamelli. He’s an amazing player that can break the big play at any time on the field. Last Week he rolled off four touchdowns, including a 74 yard run. He’s run for over 1700 yards and 23 scores. Add in 318 yards receiving and 5 more tds and it’s easy to see how important he is. On defense he plays lights out coverage.
Quarterback Carter Green: Green has thrown for 1,200 yards and 12 tds and run for 1,130 more add 14 scores. He’s a dangerous two way threat for the Warriors.
Kicker Nathan Schlessinger: Kickers are important and Nate can split the uprights with ease. He’s converted 49 extra points and 9 field goals this year including two from beyond 30 last week. He also ran in a 2 pointer vs exeter.
Offensive keys to winning:
As Yacamelli and Carter go, so go the Warriors. They’ll need to use these two to the best of their abilities but not depend on them. The Imhotep defense is probably the best defense in the state. If they key on them, it’ll be a long night for the Warriors.
Defensive Keys to winning:
Position football. That’s it. Imhotep’s offense doesn’t light up the board quickly. They grind, then look for the big play when you aren’t expecting it. They’ll need to keep Imhotep’s offense with a long field, and Schlessinger has the leg to put the ball in the endzone or punt the ball a long way.
