Comments: Josiah is a big and physical player who makes plays. Trotter is the leader on defense and a man on a mission this fall.
Josiah’s primary goal is to leave Prep as a three-time triple-crown winner, winning the Philadelphia Catholic League, District 12, and PIAA Class 6A state championships.
Mount Lebanon got in the way last season, beating the Hawks, 35-17, in the Class 6A state finals.
“Now I have to get locked in for next season, and make sure everyone else is locked in,” Josiah said. “We’re making sure things are together now, instead of later in the season. “It did bother me seeing our seniors leave the field without a state championship last year. I saw the time and commitment those seniors put in. I have a job to do this year: Making sure our seniors don’t leave the field like that again.”
