2020 PREVIEW

Honesdale hopes that with the return of some key players and a new philosophy, it can produce better results on the field. Paul Russick takes over the program and will give teams in the LFC some different looks. The Hornets are hoping to sneak up on people in 2020.

The backfield has expereince with the return of quarterback Peter West, fullback Jake Orrick and star tailback Connor Schmitt. They will have to replace their wide receivers as three players will be in the mix – Tyler Faithful, Isaac Carmody and Nate Hendrickson. Brady Carmody is the returning tight end.

The Hornets have size an experience up front. All five starters return – Kane Rogers, Bradley Bennett, Jordan DeGroat, Josh Clark and Geoff Johnson.

Sam Deron, Kyle Hanson, and Rogers are all returning starters on the defensive line while Johnson will fill the other spot. Jakob Burlein and Schmitt are back at linebacker and will be joined Orrick. The secondary is inexperienced with all four positions being filled by newcomers Isaac Carmody, Faithful, Jake Mundy and Johnny Kauffman.

Brady Hanson is the new placekicker. Zack Wilken will handle the punting duties
