Wellsboro Football Preview 2018

Hornets gearing up for another post-season run

 

by Ed Weaver - August 22, 2018

In 2017 Wellsboro Football again ran the table in the regular season, completing their third undefeated regular season in the past five year under head coach Matt Hildebrand. However, the Hornets lost 9 seniors to graduation this past summer.

Head Coach: Matt Hildebrand (6th year, 49-9)
2017 Season Record: 10-1
Key Returners: Aidan Hauser, Robert Brown, Hunter Brown
Players to Watch: Karter Witmer, Alex Burrell, Tanner Button

While 2017 ended in disappointment with a first round upset to Line Mountain in the District IV Class AA playoffs, 2017 also saw the Hornets’ second straight NTL Large School Division championship and three straight rushing seasons by quarterback Quinn Henry.

Henry, Dalton Prough, Chase Moser, Alex Kozuhowski, Collin Pietropola, Nic Ingerick, Brian Pike, and Austin Hendrickson are gone meaning there a plenty of positions to fill on both sides of the ball. Stepping into new roles this year will be Aidan Hauser, Karter Witmer, Tanner Button, and Alex Burrell.

Hauser was the Hornets’ 2nd leading rusher last year behind Henry, averaging 8.4 yards per carry with 10 touchdowns. Hauser will get more touches in Wellsboro’s spread offense as he’ll be the Hornets’ home-run threat this season.

Witmer, Burrell, and freshman Isaac Keane will be taking over for Henry at quarterback this season. All three saw reps with the first team during the Hornets’ scrimmage with Loyalsock this past Saturday. Witmer and Burrell helped lead Wellsboro’s JV team to a 6-1 record in 2017 while Keane went 7-0 at the Middle School level.

Tyler Hancock, Robert Brown and Hunter Brown return this season to lead the way up front for Wellsboro while Button, Silas Wagaman and Zach Florio will fill in the remaining skilled positions. Defensively the Hornets ranked near the top of District IV last season and with returners Robert and Hunter Brown, Florio, Hauser, Wagaman & Button Wellsboro should be right back up where they finished last season.

The Hornets open the 2018 season this Friday, August 24 on the road in Westfield against Cowanesque Valley.
