Hanover Area lost some of its best players to graduation but still have enough coming back to make some noise in WVC 3A. It will depend on how quickly the new players can mature and how much depth will come from younger players.
Christian Torres takes over at quarterback, but the Hawks to have experience at running back in Jeremy Vega. Aiden Shamaski will be his backup. The new fullback will be Jayden Shorts with Matthew Herbert providing depth. The receiving corp is experienced with J.C. Wilder, Jake Zola and Sean Dooner. Joseph Cronan will also be in the mix. Cameron Coppa will be the new tight end.
The left side of the offensive line will be the strength with tackle Xavier Ankner and guard Chase Whitman back for this season. Also returning is Jonathan Skipalis. Bryce Rockey is the new right guard while Paul Derwin steps in at right tackle. Zack Kopeck will provide depth.
Ankner and Whitman will take over at defensive end and Derwin, Rockey, and Kopeck will be the new defensive tackles. Torres is a returning starter at linebacker while Herbert, Skipalis and Shamaski will all be new at the position. Ceppa and Shorts will be the main backups.
