Key Team Stats:

The 2016 team lost to Wilson, District 3 Champion and state semi-finalist, in overtime 41-40, Perkiomen Valley, a District 1 semi-finalist, 28-16, and to North Penn, District 1 Champion and state semi-finalist, 28-19. The 3 losses were by a combined 22 points.

2017 Outlook:

Offense:

We have completely overhauled our offense to better match what we have coming back. Having TJ Pergine back at QB (136-233-2,324*-58.4-27*-8-173.5) is huge and we are going to put a lot on him, especially early in the season. We need him to be our point guard, making great decisions, controlling the pace, and making those around him better. Having Noah Silva and Matt LePore back on the offensive line will be a great help to him. Justin DeFrancesco will get a lot of touches after waiting his turn behind Matt Gibson and Selwyn Simpson.

*school record

Defense:

We have to find out who can play and quickly, having to replace all 11 starters on defense. We will be very young and / or inexperienced. How quickly we learn and mature will be a big key to our season. We are going to need our young guys to grow up quickly and help us on both sides of the ball, but particularly on the defensive side.
