2020 PREVIEW

North Pocono won a district title in 2016 and would like to get back to that level as they have seen other programs take control of Class 4A. With some experience on both sides of the ball, the newcomers will be the ones who determine if the Trojans can make that jump.

If they do, they will do it with a new quarterback as Will Soma takes over the position. Tib Toy returns as fullback and will lead the way for new running backs Sam Smith and Korry Eisley. Kollin Leschinsky returns at wide receiver and will be joined by Ryan Dolphin, Danny Smith and Gavin Jones. Ty LaFave will be the new tight end as Alex Brinkman and AJ Ambrosecchia will receive playing time.

The Trojans do have some experience on the offensive line with three starters returning – Chris Kryeski, Tommy Hannon and Timmy Rinker. The other spots will be filled during training camp.

Kryeski and Ambrosecchia are returning starters on the defensive line. Hannon, Rinker, Xavier Steinruck, Michael Kearney and Jacob Frable will also compete for positions. Damien Howe and LaFave are back at linebacker while Eisley, Toy, Brinkman and Sam Smith will be in the mix for the other two spots. Dolphin is the lone returning starter at defensive backs. Danny Smith, Leschinsky, Jones, Soma and Michael Blaine are other secondary members.

Jordan Carr will handle kicking duties.
