Class of: 2014
Jersey: # 60
Years with Varsity: 3-years
Other Sports: Track and Field
Starting experience: 3-years
Honors: This will be his 3rd year as a starter on the offensive line.
He was named outstanding O-Lineman at the Sports Recruiters combine in Palmyra. Wayde Marsico of Sports Recruiters said, “Josh was outstanding and really stood out in a talented group of lineman. Tripp, an offensive tackle, did extremely well in the testing portion of the combine and was most impressive in the L-cone drill with a 7.57 time. He should be one of the top PA offensive line prospects in the class of 2014. While participating in one-on-ones and positional drills, Josh displayed very quick feet, knee bend, good punch, strength, and the technique that colleges are looking for in a lineman. He was a competitor and showed toughness in his 6’4”, 270 pound frame.”
Coaches Q&A with Jim Roth:
What are his strengths at offensive lineman?
“I would say its his athleticism for his size. He is going to play a lot more physically this year because he is stronger. He has gained more muscle this off-season.”
Will he get some playing time on defense?
“There will be times we will incorporate him into the line. He can play either tackle or end. He has nice size and strength and can help us.”
