Big School Team # 1 Archbishop Wood (12) 0-0
It was a perfect storm of sorts for Archbishop Wood last season, setting a PIAA big school record with 699 points scored which included a 52-0 pasting of Bishop McDevitt in the PIAA AAA final. That edition of the Vikings boasted an explosive backfield and nasty, physical offensive line.
Three starters from that 2011 line – Rutgers recruit Brandon Arcidiacono and George Griffin and Fran Walsh, along with contributors Chris O’Connor and Diego Racanco, form another hefty unit to pave the way for a Vikings ground game which, last season, averaged better than 255 yards per game. Josh Messina, Jake Cooper and Kendall Singleton are all back at running back, and Benji Abercrombie likely will be the tight end – he caught a 57-yard pass last season against Pittsburgh Central Catholic and was a force at defensive end. Cooper, Anthony Roakes, Andrew Guckin and Arcidiacono will also be presences for Wood defensively.
