2015 Team Preview – Unionville (1)
Team Name: Unionville Indians
2014 Record: 6-4
QB- Will be either Jason Hagen (6’1 175 Sr) or Brendan Boyle (5’10, 180 Sr)
RB- Boyle if not the QB, also Brandon Boon (5’8, 160 SR). Boon played both WR and RB last year, and was all league at WR- he has big play potential every time he touches it. Junior Bryce McManus (5’10 200) will also play rb
WR/TE- Tyler Marmo 5’10, 165 Sr. Marmo made several big plays and had a KOR for TD last year. Also, Elan Nash 6’ 190 Sr- Nash has committed to Navy, where he will play corner. He is a 4 year varsity starter and an all-league performer. Chris Helle (sr 5’10 175) also returns with varsity experience. Pat Clark Jr returns at TE. He is a 6’3 230 Sr who is attracting interest from some 1AA and division II schools.
OT- We are rebuilding here. Sean Green, 6’7 240 Sr. is a returning starter. The OL also returns Matt Dauphin, 6’ 215 Jr, and Asger Hansen, a 6’240 Sr. Juniors Mike Cresta, Louis Ramunno, and Shane Jones will contribute on the OL.
DL- NG Thomas Mallon, 5’10 240 Sr. returns, as does Sam Gangel, a 6’2 215 Sr. Clark should also play DL. Senior Clay Coleman, as well as Cresta and Shane Jones will add depth.
LB- Return starting OLB Dylan Rapucci (6’1 210 Sr) and Laz Kirifides (5’9 175). Trevor Gardiner (5’10 175) and Jesse Gill (5’10 185) will play inside LB.
DB/S- Nash is one of the best corners in the region. FS Drew Stradling (5’10 175 Sr) also returns as a starter. Mark Knightly (6’ 170 sr) and Boyle should also play in the secondary. Nate Christopher (5’10 170 SR) also returns in the secondary.
Kicker- Shane Jones (5’10 215 Jr) will handle the kicking and Pat Clark Jr will be the punter. We have to replace Alex Pechin, who is headed to Bucknell.
2015 Outlook: We have large group of hard-working seniors and a lot of varsity experience returning. We have to replace a small, but talented, core of seniors (Alex Pechin- Bucknell, Andrew Jones- Bryant, and Quinn Cheyney- WCU). We need to get QB situated . This is our toughest schedule to date. Our first five games are Garnet valley, Exeter, Avon Grove, Rustin, and Downingtown East.
league/section/division/conference—… We have the ability to compete. Our program has a proud tradition and our kids will work tirelessly to pursue a championship. We have lost just 8 league games in the last 7 years. We expect to be in the title chase.
Rustin has established itself as the top team in our league. Great Valley is the defending District One AAA champion.
