The Neshaminy Redskins have a chance to return to the District one Title Game, and they have a good chance with a kid like Oleh Manzyk roaming the edges of the defense. At 6-1, 215 he has the size division one school desire, but it’s his strength and speed that earned him a spot on the 2017 PA Writers All State team and is likely what landed him the offers from Maine, SFU, New Hampshire and Morgan St. The Wildcats came out on top of that group as Oleh like the history of the program and the genuine interest the coaching staff showed in him. Yesterday he announced his commitment on twitter:
