Warren looks to start strong against Philo< < Back to
The Warren Warriors are making a habit out of strong starts, doing well out of conference before struggling when they hit SEOAL play over the past couple of years. While they’d obviously like to adjust the latter, they’re still hoping to jump out to a hot start out of conference yet again, this time, against the Philo Electrics.
The Electrics improved last year, finishing at 6-4, but in a conference featuring Tri-Valley and Sheridan, “improved” isn’t going to cut it. They’re looking to jump into the upper echelon of the MVL, and the way they’re going to have to start that campaign is by shutting down the best pocket passer the SEOAL has to offer, Dylan Leffingwell.
Leffingwell closed last season strong, and easily is the most experience quarterback in the conference. Coach Andy Hall of Jackson says he’s probably the best quarterback in the SEOAL, and Leffingwell needs to come up big throughout the year if the Warriors are going to make the leap.
If Warren wants to come away from their opener with a W, they’re going to have to contend with a quarterback on the other side of the ball – The Electrics’ own Zach Sheridan, a player that Dirk Lincicome, head coach, had nothing but praise for. In an interview with Gridiron Glory, Lincicome said that Sheridan was “a great player; he’s always ready to go in on every single play.”
It’s a battle of two teams that were good last year, but aspire to greatness – Which team is going to take the first step?
