2015 Season Review: Won second straight Class C Section 3 title. Lost in state quarterfinals to Chenango Forks
2016 Outlook/Goals: Our goal is to be able to step up to the challenge. It’s a new league, with bigger, better teams and we need to compete with them game in and game out.
Returning Starters: 4 (4offense/4defense). Two-way starters.
Top Returners: Jaylen Warmack (Soph, QB/DB); Nick Allen (Sr, OL/DL); Devin Smith (Sr., TE/DE); Jack Flynt (Sr, OL/DL);, A.J. Papa (Sr, WR/LB)
Newcomers to Watch: Sammy Bianco (Jr, WR/DB); Treijan Garrett (Soph, RB/LB); Nick Courto (Jr. TE/DE).
Team Strengths: A lot of these guys have been part of our system and they understand it very well. They also got some playing time and experience, which is going to help them.
Biggest Challenges: We have to replace 12 starters, seven of them were all-state players.
Will Reach Our Goals … “If we stay healthy. We have some depth in some positions, but we’re not the typical size ‘B’ school, We are really a ‘D’ school and don’t have the luxury of a JV team and the ability to bring kids up from JV when someone gets injured.” –Jake DerCola
Noteworthy: Devin Smith will be wearing No. 91 during his senior season in honor of his uncle, Will Smith.
