2021 Returning Player Stats:
Sr. Captain Thad Binstead (RB) will look to build off of a Jr. campaign that saw him earn 2nd Team All Chesmont Honors.

Jr. Trevor Dosenbach (CB) will also look to build off of his 2nd Team All Chesmont-National Honors from his sophomore season as a key piece to a four-man secondary who either started or saw a lot of varsity snaps in 2021.

2022 Offensive Outlook: “We will look for our offensive line to anchor us in 2022, returning two, three-year starters in Senior (Captain) Josh Oswald & Junior Lucas Laganelli (2nd Team All Chestmont-National), along with returning Senior Center Nate Tesche. The entire offensive line will be equally fast & physical for many different backs to carry the football Senior (Captain) Thad Binstead (2nd Team All Chestmont-National), Sr. Frank McKeown, Jr. Harrison Watson, & So. Zach Sheridan. Our first-year Jr. Quarterback Joey Marczely will command the offense with receivers, Sr. Noah Brown, Jr. Gavin Picard, returning Jr. TE Cole Walsh, and newcomer Sr. TE Andrew Czerpak. We will look to put our athletes in the best position to make plays and control the tempo of the game that best fits our personnel as the season progresses.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “We will look for our youthful defense to get better every single day as we return four starters on defense. We will be very athletic and fast to fly to the football on every down. The defensive line will be quick off the ball to disrupt the opponents’ backfield. We return three starters in the secondary where we can match the opponent’s speed and experience. Players to watch on defense are Senior (Captain) Jose Garcia on the defensive line, Sr. (Captain) Owen Yoder at safety, Junior cornerback Trevor Dosenbach (2nd Team All Chesmont-National), and Junior Cole Walsh will anchor the middle of the defense at linebacker.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We return Jr. Kicker Adam Okonowicz who has both a strong and consistent leg. We will count on him to execute PAT’s, FG’s, and look for him to put the ball into the endzone on kickoffs. We will need to be consistent with covering both kicks and punts. On the returning end of special teams, we will look for explosive plays to put our offense in better field position.”
