2015 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?
Offense: QB wide open / not sure yet who it will be Sam Rose (JR), Nick Maras (JR), and Kevin Doyle (SO) will all get reps this fall.
RB Zac Fernandez (league leading rusher last year as a soph will be a junior) , O’Shaan Allison (talented rising soph)
WR/TE Chris Brown returns as a starter / keep an eye out for talented JR Mike Fay and 6’6 TE Ian Murray
OL is led by seniors John Skrocki, Nick Leasure and David Lynch
Defense: DL Expect returning starter, Justin Titchenell (JR) to be a force and Riley Ammerman had a great offseason.
LB Defensive MVP last year Ryan Murray returns at weak OLB — he made a lot of plays for us. also our ILB’s started last year Pat Finley and Cole McCabe
DB/S Rashon Lusane (Div I recruit will roam the field) we return both corners as starters (Phil DiTrolio and Danny Sullivan) from last year
Special Team: Kicker will be someone new
What is your team’s strength and what is its weakness?
We expect our Offensive line to be very strong and dominating. Our defense returns a lot of players from a group that got better every game last season.
Please briefly assess your team’s chances to win your league?
The Inter-Ac will be competitive this fall we expect to play for the championship but it runs through haverford. Coach Murphy has done a great job building his program.
Please identify the Team to Beat in your league/section/division/conference?
The team to beat is Haverford in our league.
X Factor–excited to have Brian Boyle back at DB, RB and on special teams (he was hurt most of the year last year)
Two Juniors to keep an eye on this season–Seth Janney (TE/DE) and Jake Glavin (OL/DL)– I think they will have breakout junior football seasons.
