After nearly six decades without football, gridiron action returned to New Hope-Solebury High School two seasons ago.  One of the sparkplugs to the Lions in all three phases of the game since then has been multi-purpose athlete Julian Kaminoff.

Kaminoff, a 5’11, 175-pound senior-to-be for the Lions, holds a verbal offer from Buffalo, according to national recruiting service, and has also received interest from a mixture of Division-1 FBS and FCS programs like Brown, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida State, Harvard, Monmouth, Penn State, Princeton, Temple, UCLA and West Virginia throughout his process thus far.

The only thing Kaminoff didn’t do for the Lions during the 2010 season was manage the concession stand.  He ran for 658 yards on 93 carries; caught 16 passes for 292 yards; threw a 28-yard touchdown pass; and had a hand on defense and special teams, too.  He averaged 7.1 yards per carry and 18.3 yards per reception, scoring 17 total touchdowns (12 rushing, 1 receiving, 4 misc.).  Including the touchdown pass and the non-offensive touchdowns, Kaminoff had a hand in contributing to 18 of the Lions’ 33 total touchdowns scored in 2010 (54.5 percent).

In the last two seasons, Kaminoff has run for 1,300 yards and scored 14 rushing touchdowns as the feature tailback in the Lions’ offensive arsenal, posting five 100-yard rushing performances in that span.

New Hope-Solebury finished 5-5 overall in 2010, opening the year with three consecutive victories.
